Best Chocolate Covered Orange Peel in NY

Dear Hounds, Looking for good chocolate covered orange peel for my Mom. I usually do Lilac but wonder if anyone has other suggestions.

  1. Jacques Torres does a nice one but I believe it's an entire slice of preserved orange, not just the peel.

    1. The Leonidas one is not to be sneered at. My mother-in-law loves it.

      1. Teuscher. No question about it.

          excellent idea. thanks. Leonidas was a surprise suggestion. I am not a fan of their truffles which is the only thing I have had from them .Teuscher it is. Love Chowhound!

            I don't like their truffles either but some of their other chocolates are very good indeed. The peel is exceptional. Have not tried Teuscher yet but will, inevitably.

        2. for what it's worth, the ones at Russ and Daughters are great
