A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a segway. Today’s Groupon gives you the keys to the chocolate kingdom: for $20, you get $40 worth of chocolates galore from 5th Avenue Chocolatiere's online store. Carrying homemade chocolates in all forms, including seasonal rabbit shapes and stealth chococopter, this 34-year-old family-owned New York shop is capable of quieting your noisy sweet tooth with an intoxicating chocolaty secret recipe.
Chocolates normally have a long shelf life, but 5th Avenue Chocolatiere creations are likely to only stay on the shelves for minutes or hours (due to deliciousness, not extreme chemical volatility). To combat rapid consumption rates, Chocolatiere’s chocolatiers create fresh batches every morning, using natural, high-quality ingredients to concoct their premium chocolates. The most popular item is a box of huge signature truffles, followed closely by a chocolate suit made of handwoven chocolatextile. These chocolate wizards wield their dark magic to forge the mold-breaking truffles, which are made of pure Belgian chocolate. Show someone you really care or feed a small gaggle of cupids and pick up a 24-ounce of these favorites for $35; you can certainly purchase smaller 15-ounce ($22) or 4-ounce ($12) boxes, but remember that sharing is mandatory when it comes to chocolates.
Share a chocolate or two with a friend, or share an entire box with an extraspecial gibbon. Every occasion calls for chocolate. Mother’s Day and Valentine's Day are a given. Administrative Professionals Day and Sweetest Day are slightly more obscure. Kiss Your Coworker Day and Mime Appreciation Week aren’t even holidays (yet), but it matters not— 5th Avenue Chocolatiere chocolates make any imagined occasion a cause for joy.
5th Avenue Chocolatiere
Since 1973, 5th Avenue Chocolatiere's confectioners have risen before the rooster's crow to handcraft all natural, 100% Belgian-style chocolate into sweet treats. Created by founder John Whaley in a successful at-home experiment, signature truffles incorporate secret proportions of fresh cocoa powder, whole cream, and butter. Indulgences range from caramels to cookies, and chocolatiers mold cocoa into more than 100 shapes such as the Empire State Building and New York City Metro Card; a fungible currency for riding chocolate trains or bribing a crooked bus driver.
