Lucas Candies Review

Large Decorated SnowmanDecorated Chocolate Tree

Over Christmas I was send a few samples of Lucas Candies. Yum!!

The Lucas family has been making chocolates since 1896 after five Lucas brothers immigrated to the U.S. from Greece and settled on the Hudson River in Haverstraw, NY.  Today the store is operated by the fourth generation of the Lucas family, with the day to day management overseen by chocolatier, Nick Loucas, the great great Nephew of Constantine.  Lucas Candies uses the same recipe that came with the family from Greece in 1896, and the store still remains in its original location.  Nick Loucas has successfully continued the Lucas legacy.

I left my samples that were sent to me for this review out on the counter so everyone in the house was sampling as they walked by. My husband who is usually never happy with any food actually made the comment, “This chocolate is REALLY good!” So, for my husband to endorse them is a huge complement!

The images above are from their Christmas Holiday Collection but I am sure they will update their site now for upcoming holidays and events. So, the next time you need a special sweet treat think of Lucas Candies.

If you are in New York stop by…. 6 Main Street, Haverstraw, New York  10927. You can also connect with them on Facebook.

    I do not think I would want one of these as a gift. It would go bad before I ate it because I would not want to eat something so pretty.

    I’ve never heard of Lucas Candies. I know someone who is crazy about chocolate and I love Greek food, so I bet the chocolate has to be just as good! haha.

    I love Chocolate and it is always good to hear stories about who created the things you use or eat. This review was very interesting.

    It’s always encouraging to me to read about a business that’s “all in the family”. Keeps everyone strong.

    I can’t believe I stumbled across this review. When I saw the name Lucas Candies it made me smile. I live in the area. My husband grew up the next town over. They always had Lucas candy especially around the holdiay times. Anyone in the area always took the extra trip there to get their goodies. It is well worth the trip.

    I’ll take your husbands word for it :) I am a big fan of milk chocolate, so I can really tell this is really good. I can’t wait to write them & see if I can review some of these delicious chocolate :)

    Yum, chocolate. Sounds like they would be right up my alley. I’ll have to check them out on facebook. Thanks for the review.

  18. Jean Bullock says

    Thank you for this review. I am always hesitant to spend money on untried items and chocolates are no exception. If your hubby says the chocolates are good, then I am adding Lucas Chocolates to my “OK to buy” list.
