A Fine Chocolate Line

by smileycloud

A family lineage of three generations
Supporting A multitude of celebrations
Delicate chocolates that are cream of the crop
Quaint little shop selling a rare and tasty drop

John of Austria, a man with a recipe. The recipe was not just for the finest chocolate that could pass your lips. The ingredients included courage and determination. Bravery took his family way across the water.

Peter loved his father, and Pia as well, and he believed in this family, and saw the opportunity arise to expand. They all wanted nothing more than to continue the tradition. This included flooding the world with scrumptious home-made treats. Martha's Kitchen put the seal of perfection on their name.

Christopher the son and Stephanie the daughter added their talent and flair. The will to excel and the knowledge that they have something great to offer the world, and make it a more pleasurable place. These are the ingredients that will always shine like a golden syrup trickling through time, and if you are looking to place some bets at the casino, you'll not have a better return for your cash than a box of Aigner Chocolates.

Take home the most valuable "Golden Nugget" of all from your stay at the Casino in Las Vegas. Then top up your deliscious supply from time to time in beautiful downtown Forest Hills New York City. A metropolitan taste on Metropolitan Avenue.

Aigner Chocolate Challenge contest entry

At a guess I would say that the prompt requirements were for prose. I am not quite sure
I do apologize for the rhyme in the opening and closing; LOL just cannot help myself;
Then again, it did encase four paragraphs of prose.
Hope you enjoy the read anyway.

Write a three to four paragraph "About Us" for Aigner Chocolates. A very old chocolate company in New York City ( that connects with young adults to middle age persons. It should be personal/engaging/fresh while still telling the story of a multi-generational chocolate family that makes high end, exceptional pieces.
The original building, and the only store currently in operation (consistently since 1930), is in Forest Hills, Queens, NYC. Over the past 30 years, we have operated stores in Astoria (late 80s for 5 years), Ridgewood (previously Martha's Candy Kitchen 1915 - 1993) and Manhasset (1991-2008) - all New York towns. We also sell through 'The Chocolate Box' in the Golden Nugget Casino in Vegas since 2009.

The picture does not belong to me;
It is the image that is on the Aigner Chocolates website;
I could not help but use their own image
as it is so beautiful and quaint and it looks to me like a house made of candy
