Though losing gubernatorial candidates must formally apologize to their constituents through the gift of interpretive dance, gift baskets filled with expert confections work well on any occasion. Harness the universally enticing power of properly packaged chocolate with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a chocolate-and-fudge basket at Kilwin’s, located in Old Town (a $61.35 value).
Catering to the experienced taste buds of sweet-toothed Chicagoans, Kilwin’s chocolatiers craft everything from freshly made fudge to delicate brittles in front of an open-mouthed audience of intergenerational dessert fans. Your cellophane-ensconced chocolate basket includes a half-pound each of caramel and fudge, a milk-chocolate Kilwin’s candy bar, a chocolate peanut-butter cup, chocolate-dipped rods with sprinkles, and a sprinkle-covered chocolate-dipped Krispie. Peanut brittle and caramel popcorn round out the mix, testing molar fortitude and the ability to whistle The Andy Griffith Show theme song without sheet music.
As a nationally recognized purveyor of chocolate goods, Kilwin’s sprinkles its dainties across many states, showcasing its rich array of sweat treats behind sparkling glass cases and old-fashioned, friendly service. Kilwin’s dedicated staff can craft a ribbon-wrapped decorative basket to appease significant others or to comfort St. Valentine himself after his first-round March Madness routing.
