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: for $10, you get $20 worth of chocolate, coffee, and more at Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory in Daytona Beach.
Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory, named one of TripAdvisor's Top 10 Sweetest Attractions, has melted its gourmet chocolates and coffees into mouths since 1925. Those cockeyed for cocoa can leer at the wide selection of confections, including cherries and blueberries suffocating in cacao seeds ($7 per bag), mini gators lurking in deep brown seas ($1), and chocolate computers capable of calculating GDP ($5.95). Gourmet fudge tries on hats of peanut caramel, maple walnut, and orange crème ($4), and coffee comes in creative candy-inspired flavors, such as amaretto and banana foster ($7.99 each) and Angel's Kiss ($6.99).
Sweet seekers can also enjoy six free daily tours through Angell & Phelps's pink-and-white-checkered factory, where treats are created and factory heirs are chosen by how many chocolates they can fit behind their ears. Free samples are provided after the tours.
Five Yelpers give Angell & Phelps Chocolate Factory an average of five stars:
