The proper way to grieve over losing a chocolate companion to consumption is to replace the fond friend with more chocolate and some wine. Today's Groupon commemorates all vanished sweets with a chocolate and wine lovers' special for two from Coco-luxe Confections for $14 (an up to $38 value, depending on the wine you choose). You'll be wined and chocolated with two glasses of wine paired with four exotic truffles or caramels. A heart that beats to the harmonious swirl of luscious truffles cut by sweet wines is a heart that is well pampered.
Coco-luxe's suave shoppe, with funky, low-hanging lights, chocolaty hardwood, and warm earth tones, is the perfect place to see how truffles are born from fine chocolate and locally supplied creams. You and a loved one or whittling partner can head to the sweetery for a choice of four rotating signature chocolates and handmade caramels. Compare the flavors and varying mouth-feels of a soft and buttery butterscotch caramel to the strength of a double cherry truffle or the winter warmth of chai tea dark-chocolate ganache. To accentuate your candy experience in ways that a high five never could, you can savorily sip two glasses of wine from 122º West Winery. Inspired by the grapy tannins of the Napa and Sonoma Counties, 122º West wines add a new dimension to any blissful chocolate outing.
The language of love, like the language of chocolate and German, is a smooth tongue free of clunky dip-thongs and hard consonants. Coco-luxe provides a crash course in love language that will leave you speaking fluently.
- Somewhat like an adventure down candy cane lane, this box will take you on a journey of favorite flavors not often tasted in chocolates… Coco-luxe chocolates are twice as thick as many of the artisan chocolates produced in a similar fashion, enough for two delectable mouthfuls from each square. – Tamara Bitticks, The Chocolate Review
- No one who sets eyes on a box of Coco-luxe can fail to be attracted—nay, can fail to want to snatch a piece. This young company has succeeded in creating a line that looks like nothing else in Chocolatedom. – The Nibble
