The Aztecs used a currency system in which one turkey cost 100 cacao beans and one fresh avocado was worth three beans. So with today’s Groupon, where 15 US dollars gets you 35 US dollars worth of Essential Chocolate Desserts creations, that means that you’ll be getting more than 100 cacao beans (in their processed, chocolaty form). That’s a hefty 57% discount on wicked chocolate cake, uncommon moon pies, chocolate macaroons, and more.
Essential Chocolate’s desserts are freshly baked onsite by a team of skilled chocolate artisans trained by a chocolate chef dressed like God. The store, which is walking distance from Sony Studios, also serves a signature café mocha (a rich hot chocolate with a shot of espresso) and Pirate’s Chai ceremonial matcha green tea chai latte. If superabundance of chocolate causes difficulty breathing, dizziness, or varying degrees of swellings, bite into a hearty muffin, twinkling cupcake, or cranberry hazelnut tart immediately.

Essential Chocolate's Impact On Film Industry
Actors and behind-the-scenes personnel at Sony Studios frequently patronize Essential Chocolate Desserts, which is just down the street. The visits have led to many chocolate-inspired cinematic moments:
- The gunshot sound effects in Spider-Man 3 were created by throwing slices of Oreo cheesecake into the air and shooting them with guns.
- Will Smith’s ultra-realistic wig in Men in Black II was made out of chocolate mousse encased in chocolate ganache.
- During the filming of Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland was compelled to improvise AFI’s 57th most famous movie quote: “There’s no place like home because home is not far from Essential Chocolate Desserts, which is my favorite bakery because it offers delicious baked goods and morning beverages.”
