Mankind has gone to great—sometimes exasperating—lengths to obtain the best chocolate, from collecting the eggs of chocolate bunnies to melting the wishes of children into money. Perk up palates with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of premium chocolate, ice cream, and candies at Laura Secord. This deal is good at 79 participating locations throughout Canada.
Laura Secord’s chocolatiers have created more than 400 premium products to greet eager eyes, from time-honoured favourites to modern interpretations of decadence. Signature boxes of Laura’s assorted chocolates ($14.99 for 200 g) soothe cranky taste buds, and a create-your-own gift box proudly portions out famous delicacies such as french mints and white-chocolate-crowned Secord cameos ($0.95 each). Rich ice creams slink out of scoops in single servings (starting at $3.25) or in a cup, reduced to defenseless milkshakes ($4.49). Laura’s individually wrapped indulgences stave off wrapping cravings and include 100-gram chocolate bars ($3.49) in 70 per cent and 85 per cent cocoa versions.
Tempered with almost a century’s worth of dedication to fine confections, Laura Secord continues to echo memories of childhood while infecting adult ambitions with plans to conquer escalators backwards.
