Chocolate is frequently kept hidden away within a foil wrapper or inside a lollipop, awaiting the moment when it can flaunt its flavor on esophageal runways leading to after-hours dance parties in the stomach. Let chocolate get where it wants with today's Groupon. For $20 get $40 worth of merchandise from Coco-luxe Confections holiday shop in Palo Alto's Town and Country Village shopping center. Coco-luxe's holiday chocolate boutique features luxurious handmade treats created from premium ingredients, but it is only around until December 31, 2010, when it vanishes into chocolate powder at the stroke of midnight. Shoppers can select from seasonal offerings such as peppermint and gingerbread truffles, containing rich chocolate ganache flavored with holiday spices. Taste the sophisticated side of sweets with Coco-luxe's signature caramel collection, an upscale take on classic candy flavors—an assortment of nine pieces is available for $18.95. Artisan truffles (nine-piece assortments available for $18.95) display outer shells whimsically stamped with designs such as fruits or teapots, giving eyes something to feast on as your taste buds anxiously await their just deserts with just desserts.
A-List International and other publications have had delicious things to say about Coco-luxe. The choco experts at The Nibble praise it, and The Chocolate Review gives it an 8.9 out of 10. More than 125 Yelpers give it an average of four stars:
- 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
