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. This Groupon is good at Hilliards House of Candy's locations in North Easton, Hanover, and Canton (the Hanover location does not serve ice cream.) This deal expires on December 31, 2010.
A hodgepodge of truffles, caramels, fudges, and ice cream treats greets confectionary cravers and ice cream screamers at Hilliards House of Candy. Peruse fine chocolates as soft as hazelnut figaro ($11.75 for 8 oz.) or as hard as peanut-and-caramel jazz squares ($11.75 for 8 oz.). The buttery cashew brittle ($9.50 for 8 oz.) gives teeth a challenge, and the Grand Marnier truffle ($2.20) intrigues the taste buds with orange liquor flavor and chocolate ganache. Hilliard's serves its ice cream cones, sundaes, and frappes until October 31, but after that you can still pick up a pint ($5.95) or a quart ($8.95) to take home or bring to a lonely mailman.
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.
The Easton location will be closed from November 1–2, 2010.
Hilliards House of Candy on Main Street gets a perfect five-star rating from eight Yelpers.
- I'm so happy, students at UMass Boston were selling Hilliard's Candy Bars today for a fundraiser and I jumped at the chance to have one of their decadent bars. This place was my childhood dream., and probably the reason why I first starting developing cavities. – Erika R.
- Okay, Hilliard's has the best chocolate, hands down. If you dispute this fact, you are WRONG, and you should probably be evaluated. – anne o.
