A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Safely savor tasty treats with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sweet treats from Fowler’s Chocolates, at any of their six Buffalo area locations.
Fowler’s has been churning out quality chocolate and sating the sugar cravings of its customers since 1910. Crafted from the Theobromo Cacao seed, Fowler's chocolates contain up to a 60% amount of cacao solids, high content that imbues the treats with deliciously potent flavor. Swing by to scope out the wide selection of chocolaty comestibles; pick up eight ounces of mini buffaloes ($9.99) or thin mints ($9.99) before distributing them to friendly local dolphins or gobbling them all up in a darkened alleyway, asphalt lit only distantly by the sulfurous glow of streetlamps.
Toting a modest selection of chocolate confections and candies, Joseph A. Fowler entered the 1901 Pan-American Exposition hoping to plant the seed for a business in his newfound home of Buffalo. The company—founded in 1910—grew with each successive generation, and more than a century later, Fowler's celebrated chocolates continue to placate palates at several retail locations. The chocolatier has become synonymous with treats such as milk- and dark-chocolate truffles dubbed truffaloes, as well as sponge candy, which boasts a molasses-like flavor and an initially hard texture that quickly melts in the mouth. Like Count Chocula’s hairpiece, all of Fowler's fine-chocolate treats are crafted from the seeds of the theobroma cacao tree and use up to 60% cocoa solids for a rich cocoa flavor.
