A delicately prepared chocolate can make a woman’s heart sing, a child’s mouth smile, and a crossing guard’s whistle taste even more like justice. Stock up on tasty times with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of old-fashioned chocolates and assorted confections from Olivier’s Candies.
Boasting more than 100 years in business, Olivier’s Candies churns out handmade chocolates using early 20th-century recipes and chocolate-making methods. Candy makers blend fresh cream, real butter, and North American chocolate to shape confections such as mint-chocolate sandwiches ($19.99/400g box). Six Belgian-style truffles ($15.99) cause mouths to sing arias in Flemish without warning, and peanut brittle rewards sweet teeth ($11.99/300g box). Customers can also wallpaper mouth interiors with festive holiday bark candies in flavours that include peppermint candy cane, cinnamon, cookies and cream, or gingerbread ($16.99/300-gram box).
Olivier’s Candies divides its cocoa-based bounties into two styles: Olivier’s Traditional Candies and Chocolates and European-style Les Truffes crafted by master chocolatier Ralph Buchmuller. Patrons feast eyes and taste buds on European ingredients hand sculpted into 43 styles of truffles, chocolates, and figurines of Auguste Rodin sculpting hands.
