Hot chocolate warms both bodies and spirits, like a homemade bowl of chicken soup or a puppy trained to compliment you on your outfit. Savor holistic coziness with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a gift box six-pack of hot chocolate on a stick at Popbar in Greenwich Village (a $20 value). Six-packs must be picked up in the store, and Groupon customers receive free dippings and poppings on any popGelato, popSorbetto or YogurtPops purchase when redeeming their Groupon.
The snack scientists at Popbar supplement freshly made gelato and sorbetto with wintery bouquets of hot chocolate on a stick. Selected as one of CBS Local's "5 Holiday Gifts for NYC Foodies", the cube-shaped treats pack the prerequisites for a cup of hot chocolate, coating the business end of a popsicle stick with premium Swiss chocolate available in dark-, milk-, and vanilla-white-chocolate flavors. When twirled in a mug of steamed milk, the sweet payload transforms into a chocolately treat, leaving liquid illusionists holding nothing more than a bare stirrer and a soggy ace of spades. The towable treats eschew preservatives and artificial coloring, and come in packages of six, making them a great gift for sextuplets or your favorite half of a basketball team.
