Research suggests that the happiest homes are located within two blocks of a chocolatier, primarily because chocolate increases energy, which increases productivity, which expedites the process of constructing a pudding fort. Bring some delight into your domicile with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of boxed chocolate and bagged candy at Esther Price Candies, with locations in Bridgetown and Kenwood.
Dayton-based Esther Price Chocolates draws upon eight decades of confectionary craft to build wonders rich with cocoa, cream, and fruity and savory fillings. Like Stephen Hawking’s checkbook, the 18-ounce box of light and dark assorted chocolates ($13.25) brings balance to an off-kilter universe, wrapping gold foil around Esther Price’s most in-demand delectables—peanut-butter cream, caramel pecans, chocolate-covered cherries, and more. Other offerings include nut-infused bark ($15 for two 8 oz. boxes), hot chocolate ($10.95 for 12 oz. tin), and chocolate-splashed sweetheart mints ($16 for two 16 oz. boxes) for whenever one needs to freshen up before kissing their dessert. In the interest of democratizing deliciousness, the shop also outputs a variety of sugar-free alternatives including sugar-free peanut butter truffles ($8.80 for 8 oz. box).
