A delicately prepared chocolate can make a woman's heart sing, a child's mouth smile, and a crossing guard's whistle taste even more like justice. Stock up on tasty times with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet chocolate at Fowler’s Chocolates. This Groupon is valid at Fowler’s two Buffalo locations, as well as its locations in Cheektowaga, Hamburg, Tonawanda, and East Aurora.
First opened in 1910, Fowler’s Chocolates has delighted flavor sensors with decadent confections for more than a century. Chocolatiers fashion each delectable morsel from 60% cacao solids, imbuing their chocolates with flavor as rich as King Midas after a poking spree. Tasty offerings include an 8-ounce box of mini buffaloes housing a herd of Lilliputian bison molded from milk, dark, or orange chocolate ($9.99). Thin mints ($9.99) make for an ideal palate refresher, and a Truffalo chocolate bar packs the concentrated punch of a truffle in rectangular form. Meanwhile, sponge candy ($18.99 for 1 lb.) starts out as a firm, chocolate-covered, molasses-flavored cube, just like most numbered dice. Eventually, however, it slowly melts in mouths, sating sweet teeth with a gooey, sticky treat.
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.
