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 $6, you get $12 worth of treats at Chocolaterie Stam in Chapel Hill.
After Jacobus Stam attained a compliment-baiting reputation for crafting delectable pastries and chocolates at his bakery, Chocolaterie Stam was founded in Amsterdam in 1913 to focus solely on chocolates and sweet treats. Visitors of Chocolaterie Stam's American branches can enjoy a wide range of assorted sweets that contain no wax or preservatives. Savor nearly a century's worth of quality and tradition in every decadent bite, recalling the time when actual gold coins were the de rigueur dessert. Percolate palates with a gift box (starting at $15.95), gelato ($2.79), or a toothsome stack of stroopwafels toting a layer of caramel syrup ($4.50). Additionally, visitors can stop by to soak in the relaxing atmosphere and sip on a flavorful Italian soda, gelato, or hot chocolate instead of converting their home’s crawlspace into a compact café.
When topological surveys uncovered a richly flowing chocolate vein under Chapel Hill, a sure-footed band of chocolatiers set to work building a premium confectionarium on site. Drop in for a smile-inducing treat or pick up a box of bonbons to rile up crowds of neighborhood kids before devouring its contents right before their sad little eyes.
- I wish I could bottle the smell of this place and take it home! The chocolate is so authentic and absolutely delicious. The coffee is European style and equally as good! – Felicia W., Insider Pages
- Delicious! I love it when the chocolate begins to melt in my hands before it ever makes it to my mouth. That's the sign of good stuff! Other good stuff they provide: gelato, coffee, and a very cozy sitting area for reading and chatting. – Angela C., Yelp
