Jessica Taige came to New York City to be an actress -- and now it's her famous homemade peanut butter cups that are taking center stage! An East Harlem resident, Jessica makes each candy by hand at East Harlem's own HBK Incubates, using her own from-scratch peanut butter and Belgian chocolate. She loves experimenting with new flavors, from Dark Sea Salt to Pretzel to P.B.J. to Oreo, plus flavors-of-the-month that have included Pumpkin Spice (dark chocolate with almond and pumpkin butters), and a Nutty Love Cup (inspired by her grandmother's Black Forest Cake). Order online and you can either pick up at La Marqueta or have your box shipped anywhere across the nation. (Yes, that is Jessie that you saw standing in line at the 124th Street Post Office.)
