Life is like a box of chocolates: it ends quickly when it tumbles into lava. Enjoy the transient experience of sweet pleasure while you can with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of chocolates, candies, ice cream, and more at Hilliards House of Candy in North Easton, Hanover, or Canton. Ice cream is available beginning April 29 at the North Easton and Canton locations; the Hanover location does not serve ice cream. This Groupon expires June 30.
A hodgepodge of truffles, caramels, fudges, and chilly treats greets confectionary cravers and ice-cream screamers at Hilliards House of Candy. Peruse specific fine chocolates such as hazelnut figaro ($11.75 for 8 oz.) or go for a mixed bag with the popular assortment box ($12.95 for 7 oz.). The almond toffee crunch gives teeth a challenge ($10.95 for 7.5 oz.), and the Grand Mariner truffle seduces taste buds with a combination of orange-liquor flavor, chocolate ganache, and smooth pickup lines ($2.20).
For a cool refresher, Hilliards whips up a variety of ice-cream cones, sundaes, and frappes, forming fresh ingredients into classic blends such as french vanilla and pistachio, as well as more distinctive scoops such as Coffee Brownie Madness. To keep it a cherished, seasonal treat, Hilliards slings ice cream starting April 29, preventing overly eager sweet teeth from compounding their brain freezes with winter weather.
Family-owned for four generations, Hilliards has been concocting sweets and ice cream since 1924 and still uses the same family recipes. Treats are made in copper kettles in small batches, ensuring freshness and a devotion to detail most people reserve for forging signatures. Treat yourself to a tasty and timeless sugary snack.
