What You'll Get
A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, made out of grapes that have gone bad, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Today's deal gets you $20 worth of delicious chocolates for $10 from Leonidas, a luxury shop specializing in finely crafted confections. This Groupon is only valid in-store at the West Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, location.
Without love, pop songs would be about the burger you ate for lunch and the excellent PowerPoint you presented at your last business meeting. Give your sweetie incentive to continue sharing your utility bills with an elegant box of fine confections. Leonidas' chocolates don't skimp on the sweetness—think decadent bites bursting with fresh creams, whole nuts, rich butters, and flavorful fruits. Bring home ganaches, pralines, and creamy concoctions. Fruit fans will appreciate the assortment of fruit jellies, with sweet pear, strawberry, pineapple, tangerine, and apple. View a complete guide here. Leonidas offers pre-packaged boxes, or you can handpick individual pieces to bring home for $38/lb.
Unlike soy yogurt and imported pears, chocolates don't mold or start to talk back with time. The edible balls of "I love you" make lovely gifts not only for your lover, but also for your dry cleaner, bus driver, or roommate. Pick up a box to gift away or linger at Leonidas and indulge in the melty gobs over a steaming caffè mocha ($4 for a medium). Leonidas' mochas use the chocolatier’s own decadent molten chocolate for a smooth, rich finish.

LA Weekly lionizes Leonidas' hot chocolate, saying:
- [My daughter] Isabel took one sip of the smooth, refined “regular” hot chocolate, and refused to let me near her cup. “This is the best hot chocolate in the world,’’ she said. “In the world.’’ It was fine hot chocolate, suave and full, with a subtle but distinct aftertaste of pralinated nuts. Leonidas’ hot chocolate is perhaps the finest I have ever had the pleasure of sipping from a paper cup. – Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly
- They recommended me to get the Mexican hot chocolate, which turned out to be really delicious. – Cecilia C., Insider Pages
- They package [the chocolates] up so cute with a ribbon and a sticker. You know it's really high quality chocolate when the sweetness and bitterness is just right and it melts in your mouth instantly. – Christine H., Yelp
