Chocolate and Art from Mast and the Met

Mast, the chocolate makers originally based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but now in Mount Kisco, N.Y., teamed up with the Metropolitan Museum of Art two years ago to create a special assortment of bars for the gift shop, each wrapped in paintings from the Met. Some are notably well matched, like Katsushika Hokusai’s “Under the Wave Off Kanagawa” for a bar of sea salt chocolate, and John Singer Sargent’s “Madame X” with dark chocolate. As a fund-raiser for its 150th anniversary, the collection of chocolate bars in a dozen flavors will benefit the museum. For each $9 bar, $5.50 will go to the Met; for the $100 set, $60 is donated.
