Life is like a box of chocolates—it ends quickly when it tumbles into lava. Enjoy the transient experience of sweet pleasure while you can with today's Groupon at Chocolate Lover's Club in Princeton. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get a two-hour ice-cream-making class (a $50 value)
- For $12, you get $24 worth of sweets at the shop or café
Chocolate Lover's Club keeps mobs of sweet teeth at bay with a wide assortment of palate-pleasing treats, imparting the wisdom behind its creations to interested consumers. Two-hour classes task up to 28 trainees with crafting their own ice cream from the time-honored ingredients of cream, ice, and syrupy love. An ice queen's buffet—complete with chips, crackers, dips and spreads, and freshly made ice cream—eagerly awaits graduates at the end of the session, proudly unveiling its wares for the critical eyes and palates of the class. Class sessions meet from 3 p.m.–5 p.m. every Saturday, with reservations recommended for all sweet-teethed students. Students can extend the experience with take-home chocolate that can adorn further ice cream creations.
Switching gears from fact snacks to real snacks, Chocolate Lovers' Club's shop bombards the senses with a wide assortment of treats that draw preternatural power from all-natural, pure, Belgian chocolate (starting at $2 per piece). The on-site café massages away hunger pangs with a selection of more elaborate desserts, including ice cream specials, shakes, and floats ($4+), plus a variety of Aztec chili ($9+) and mole dishes ($13+) that awaken the taste buds faster than an alarm clock glued to a rooster.
Chocolate Lovers Club
Chocolate Lovers Club is a haven for cacao enthusiasts throughout the Princeton area. Regular meet ups, ranging from classes and tastings to date nights for couples, aim to educate attendees about the rich treat and provide them with hours of delicious fun. Themed tastings broaden palates' horizons with samples made in different countries around the world. Beverage-pairing events introduce participants to the harmonies between wine and chocolate or more unconventional marriages of beer, cheese, and chocolate. On Thursday and Friday nights, a dessert café supplies opportunities to indulge in hot-fudge sundaes, chocolate nachos, and the glories of using chocolate syrup as shampoo.
