More enticing than a tureen of oil, a goblet of chocolate is as good as gold among cultures that confuse gold for goblets of chocolate. Today's Groupon fills your chocolate wallet with $25 worth of sweet confections for $10 at Chuao Chocolatier. With three local locations you can easily test your chocolate tooth and prove that it isn't a literal tooth made of chocolate, but in fact a tooth that greatly admires the taste and health benefits of chocolate.
Chuao Chocolatier creates signature morsels from fresh, natural ingredients. Decadent chocolate concoctions form Chuao's adventurous ChocoPods with uncanny flavors like chipotle and salt-tinged Firecrackers that crack and explode with mouth-tingling popping candy ($12 for 12); Spicy Maya chocolates with dark chocolate, pasilla chilis, cayenne peppers, and cinnamon ($12 for 12); Modena Matchboxes filled with strawberry and balsamic caramel ($6 for 6); and Candela Matchboxes stuffed with spicy macadamia praline ($6 for 6). The chocolatier's chocolate tour also extends to the miniature affections of nine dark-chocolate bonbons and truffles packaged together in the Tease box ($18) and full-out chocolate bars like the Panko Chocolate Bar Set, a three-pack of dark-chocolate bars with toasted panko bread crumbs and sea salt ($18).
A milk mustache is quickly erased, but a chocolate mustache invites casual all-day licking for all-day deliciousness. This Groupon can be used the same day as purchase, so you can stock up on last-minute Valentine's delights.
Today's Groupon is valid in-store only.
- We especially liked the Caracas bar bursting with whole hazelnuts, pistachios and almonds and available in both milk and dark versions. – Ami Kealoha, Cool Hunting
- The flavors are bold and uncommon and assertive. Flavors are borrowed from outside the candy realm with excellent results. But when they’re inside the sweets oveure [sic], they’re really at their best. The spiced flavors are wonderful but I really enjoyed the caramelized items like the Cambur [banana and brown sugar caramel chocolate]. – Cybele May, Candy Blog
- With my first bite of the candy, I initially tasted salty dark chocolate...similar to the combination of chocolate-covered pretzels. As the chocolate begins to melt, you get into the pop rocks that are embedded in the chocolate bar…As the chocolate finishes melting, a low-grade heat sets into the back of your mouth and throat. You don't actually taste chili pepper, but it makes its presence known! – dmlichnerowicz, Viewpoints
