What You'll Get
A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Sate your sophisticated sweet tooth with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of chocolates and sweets from Allie's Edibles. Pick up your order from the reception area of Allie's professional kitchen in Carlsbad between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (address will be provided upon ordering), or order online and use your Groupon toward the cost of shipping. Buy up to five of today's Groupon for yourself, and give more as gifts to coat an entire army of kvetching relatives.
The eponymous Chef Allie is a lifelong devotee of the chocolate altar, a once-amateur chef who went pro with her husband Jason to provide original recipes in customizable packaging to slavering hoards of chocoholics. Chocolate treats are available in numerous varietals, including butternut toffee drenched in chocolate, chocolate-coated caramel, and smooth homemade marshmallow stuffed between two layers of yet more chocolate. Pick up variety packs in a custom tote that holds 10 pieces for $19.80 or 18 pieces for $35.75. For more treats per square inch, order an indulgent comfort case, a clear Caboodle chock full of plastic-wrapped Allie specialties. The cases come in four sizes with Hollywood-inspired names, and ranges in price from $40 to $205.
Chocolate consumption not only boosts endorphins and floods the blood with miniature plague-battling chocolate chips; it creates pleasant associations tied distinctly to he or she who procured the sweet stuff. With Mother's Day swiftly approaching, now or now is an ideal time to order up a batch of Allie's signature treats and ensure that mum's associations stay on the positive end of the emotional spectrum. All of Allie's desserts are entirely handmade, kosher certified, and forged from high-quality ingredients, such as gelatin from Israel and vanilla from Tahiti. Allie's chocolate is a proprietary blend, so tasting it elsewhere would be not only impossible, but also illegal.
