Though money can’t buy love, it can buy chocolate, which is a superb substitute for love when your date abandons you to live among the hippogriffs. Drown tears in a sea of sweets with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Summer Caramel Extravaganza Box at Oh! Chocolate (a $40 value). Choose from the following locations: Seattle, Bellevue, or Mercer Island.
Oh! Chocolate’s gift boxes fulfill the mouth's sweetest desires with delicate arrangements of bite-size, handmade chocolates. Dark- and milk-chocolate caramels headline the Summer Caramel Extravaganza Box, each packing enough sweet flavor to transform the uvula into the beautiful swan it was always meant to be. Turtles allow pecans to make their grand entrance onto palates in their crispiest, roasted form, and snuggly glued to one another with molten milk or dark chocolate. Oh! Chocolate’s confectioners also pack the delectable sachet with nostalgia-inducing treats, including tender butter-almond toffee and old-fashioned honeycomb chunks, all intertwined in cocoa and potent enough to induce pleasant memories of childhood summers spent jumping through sprinklers before rolling in coconut.
Started by Hawaii transplants Gertie Han and Karl Krautheim more than 50 years ago, Oh! Chocolate is now run by the couple’s two daughters, who uphold Gertie and Karl’s reputation for quality as they handcraft French–style chocolate morsels. USA Today named the neighborhood establishment one of Seattle's foremost chocolatiers for its “old-fashioned… melt-in-your-mouth” creations, which include raspberry, cabernet, and mango-habanero truffles, as well as caramels with a sprinkle of sea salt harvested from one of the peninsula's naturally occurring saltshakers. Oh! Chocolate’s warm and inviting Madison Park location spreads cocoa-themed knowledge with a slate of classes in which small groups of students glean valuable information such as tempering methods and ideal placement atop a just-fluffed pillow.
