- Hotel Chocolat said its peanut pralines proved a hit with New Yorkers when the company opened its New York store on Monday.

'As we evolve into international markets, our core "More Cocoa, Less Sweet" mantra gains traction across the globe. In Tokyo our hot chocolat and sculpted chocolate batons were an instant sell-out, whereas New Yorkers went wild for our peanut pralines when we opened here yesterday, said Angus Thirlwell, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hotel Chocolat.

'This is a hugely exciting time to be at the helm of Hotel Chocolat, as the brand continues to grow and prove popular with locals in overseas markets, making more people happy through the power of chocolate.'
