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 to Aigner Chocolates in Queens. Since 1930, Aigner Chocolates has produced a tempting array of handmade chocolate, sweet confections, and sure-fire gift boxes. Made in the Austrian chocolatiering tradition of rich, creamy centers and silky smooth flavorings, Aigner's chocolates come in gourmet and traditional pieces that range from jelly-infused cherry gele ($3 for three pieces) to chocolate-dipped roasted almond clusters ($7 for nine pieces). Otherwise, enable a raging chocoholic who was once issued a restraining order by Count Chocula with a 32-piece gift box—a smorgasbord of cacao-infused truffles, creams, and nut clusters ($26.95).
