After tinkering with the time capsule at Mount Vesuvius, scientific explorers unleashed a flood of chocolate lava stored away by a mischievous child. Savor the fruit of this ancient prank with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of store-made sweets at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. This Groupon is valid at the locations in New Orleans and Metairie.
Visitors to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory can peek across the counter at the shop's resident confectioners, who massage creamy loaves of chocolate into elegant slabs of fudge ($13.25/lb.) daily. For additional culinary theatrics, expert orchard orderlies kettle-dip granny smiths into caramel-coated creations. Caramel apples range from the classically simple ($5.25+) to the rocky road caramel apple, which gets rolled in walnuts and marshmallows before being drizzled in milk and white chocolate with liberal discretion ($9.25). With traditional techniques and old-fashioned flavors, the team at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory provides a wide range of treats for teeth both sweet and savory. To enhance each customer's visit, staffers also hand out samples of fudge and occasionally pull golden tickets out of patrons' ears.
