Mast Brothers chocolate ANYONE??
Did that wake you up from your Monday afternoon slumber? OK, they might be hipsters, have ridiculous (?) beards and the outfits to go with it BUT they still make really great chocolate. And now you don’t have to travel all the way to Brooklyn in the U.S. of A to get your chocolate fix…for they’ve landed in the hipster capital of Blighty, that being Shoreditch, East London.
Quite predictable that they should set up in Shoreditch given the Mast Brothers hipster credentials but let’s face it, their customers are on the doorstep, probably know all about them already (from their hipster twitter feeds) so will part with their readies quite happily for a quality product.
Above all though, the Mast Brothers chocolate is really really GOOD! The fact that they’re hipsters should be irrelevant, they’re a PR dream! Great look, great chocolate, cool packaging, fantastic photography, 41 thousand Instagram followers and an amazing Instagram feed to boot. Next time you’re in London you know where to go…..

Awesome news! We featured the Mast Brothers on the blog a while back and it caused quite a stir from the other side of the pond for all sorts of reasons including us calling them #hipsters Anyway! Looks like the bearded ones released a chocolate cook book at the end of last year, here’s a sneaky peak courtesy of vimeo, it’s quirky, we like it, hope you enjoy.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy some quality documentary film making….and perhaps contemplate booking that flight to NYC to get your hands on some really excellent artisan chocolate. The Mast Brothers rock.
