Chocolate first arrived in Europe during the 16th century, when only royals could afford such imported sweet treats while common folk had to suffice with chalklette, a knockoff confection consisting primarily of sedimentary rock. Get the real cacao deal with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chocolates at the Fascia’s Chocolate factory showroom in Waterbury.

Fascia’s Chocolate began nearly 50 years ago as a family endeavor and it remains so today, whipping up white, milk, and dark-chocolate delights in small batches using a superior Swiss-style chocolate. Sink saccharine-seeking teeth into traditionally salty snacks made sweet, such as chocolate-covered potato chips and pretzels ($7.95+), while assorted truffles and cordial cherries make easy friends with even the most standoffish of taste buds ($16.95 for 8 oz.; $29.95 for 16 oz.). For a classic romantic gesture, pick up a medley of milk and dark-chocolate morsels in varied shapes and designs, some stuffed with timeless fillers such as caramel, nuts, creams, and more ($13.95 for a 15-piece box; $24.95 for 32-pieces), or, for truly special relationships, like the one between an irresponsible driver and a bribable parking enforcement official, are strengthened with a gift of specialty Fascia’s goodies, such as pecan turtles, truffle meltaways, and buttercrunch toffee ($14.95 for 8 oz.; $26.95 for 16 oz.). Moms deserve edible recognition with chocolate-dipped strawberries, especially on May 8, a holiday known to sneak up until it’s too late to get anything but a lame greeting card and a pet rock for the woman who brought you into this world ($19.95 for eight-piece box).

Fascia's Chocolate

For a half century, the Fascia family tree has been made of solid chocolate. John and Helen Fascia first began making the treats in 1964, with their three daughters helping out in the family's kitchen. Eventually, the business grew out of the house and today the Fascia's chocolates can be found throughout Connecticut and at their central Waterbury factory. The family still leads the team and continues to make small batches of hand-crafted chocolates as well as other treats—including authentic gelato made on-site.
