Where to get U-bet chocolate syrup before Passover

I'll be in NY in early April, which is apparently a week or so before Passover (thanks Google). Where would be the best place to go to pick up some U-bet chocolate syrup that is specified for Passover so it uses the real cane sugar?

Are there any markets with delivery option I could just have them send a case to my hotel?

No hotel booked yet, but definitely in midtown. Don't mind traveling to get it. Maybe I can call the concierge once booked and have them procure it for me.

  1. I believe Economy Candy has U Bet syrup.

        Double check it is the kosher for passover version.
        U-bet regular chocolate syrup is very common but is not kosher for passover.

          Thanks, but that's not the Kosher for Passover version with the cane sugar. Maybe I'll contact them as we get closer to April and hopefully they'll get some in stock.

            Economy Candy will probably sell a kosher version as the holiday gets closer.

            They get macaroons in. They also sell halavah. I can't remember if they get Hamatashen for Purim.

            Russ and Daughters might also sell.

      2. I prepared my first passover dinner last year and I may have to again this year since I survived it so naturally everyone expects it. Is chocolate syrup part of the dessert? I am looking for ideas.

          It's to make a chocolate egg creme, which could be dessert. The Fox U-bet website has the official instructions. U-bet chocolate syrup, whole milk, and seltzer water. It's even sometimes on Eleven Madison Park's menu, although I think they must make the chocolate sauce themselves.

        2. Fairway supermarkets should have it, most common is the U-bet that is not kosher for passover.
          If not fairway, the the kosher supermarket Seasons will:

            Thanks, I'll get in touch with both places as we get closer to April and see about reserving a case or having a case sent to my hotel.

          2. It should be relatively easy to find the week before the holiday. Fairway on 74th and Broadway has a large Passover section. It will probably be in other markets as well
