My 90-Year Old Grandmother and 4-Year Old Nephew Review Breads Bakery's Chocolate Babka.

In what has become an annual tradition, I once again headed to New Jersey for the holidays and once again snuck away for a day to the big city and returned with a renown New York dessert for my grandmother to review. In a new twist, my 4-year old nephew was also around, so he joined in the festivities.

The subject at hand: Breads Bakery absolutely amazing, beloved, borderline transcendent Chocolate Babka. The sort of babka I would totally understand Seinfeld stealing from any old lady (as long as it's not my Granny). Don't fret if you can't make it to NYC soon though. Breads Bakery now ships the Chocolate Babka nationwide, which is a major win for America.
