What You'll Get
A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Consume delectable treats while indulging in stasis with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet chocolates from Encore Chocolates on Pattonwood Drive.
Encore Chocolates provides Rochester residents a much-needed outpost for imaginative desserts and pristine chocolate packaging. Encore’s staff is well acquainted with the unofficial healing powers of chocolate, famously harnessed during WWI to cure the rampant outbreak of helmet spikes, and the Core Chocolate selections sweetly greet shrewd taste buds. Half-pound (12–16 pieces) and one-pound (24–32 pieces) boxes are available as confection receptacles, and groupings such as the assorted creams ($16/lb.) replace the insidious insecurity at the center of many chocolates with fillings including vanilla buttercream, maple cream, and raspberry cream. Swiss truffles ($22/lb.) are available in milk, dark, and white chocolate and include amaretto, tiramisu, and champagne flavors. Virtuoso truffles ($1.75 each) come in boxes of two, four, six, and 12; the adagio truffle pairs milk chocolate with pistachio, and the fugue trudges out a trio of walnut praline, milk chocolate, and apple-infused dark chocolate carefully kept away from J.S. Bach’s chocolate-grubbing ivory ticklers.
For the past 23 years, Encore Chocolates has worked to bring Rochester enthusiastic, inventive chocolate construction and friendly dessert service. Ideal for celebrating major milestones such as weddings, graduations, or one’s very first time wearing lederhosen to work, Encore Chocolates’ core chocolate selection gives Groupon holders cocoa-derived deliverance from stagnant store-stocked desserts.
This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
