When the first strawberry fell from its tree into a child's fudgesicle, a stranger walking by grabbed the boy's treat, mass-produced it, and sold it to other children. Today's Groupon celebrates that day with a dozen chocolate-dipped strawberries for $18 from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Burbank. A dozen of Rocky Mountain's decadent bites (which are normally $3 each) will take your taste buds to sweet and strawberry perfection, an anomalous isthmus between cocoa powder–coated produce and chocolate bars with strawberry jam.
While some redheaded berries have hoop dreams, most strawbs dream of a succulent shirt from the benevolent chocolate tailors at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Ripe fruits plucked fresh from nature are happily hand dipped in gourmet Guittard chocolate. They come out sparkling with a fresh coat of edible indulgence, a hydrating mask of love-activated choco that hardens until it's perfectly suited to chomping, slow savoring, or timid gnawing. They'll hop together 12-strong into a fancy box.
While apples and oranges make thoughtfully nutritious gifts, a chocolate strawberry offers a more romantic gesture with juicy fruit and high-quality chocolate. Over the holidays, you treated yourself to sweets galore, and now your neglected sweet tooth nags you to live out its fantasies of dunking biscotti and raw pastas in vats of chocolate. Teach it temperance with a few choice morsels before it caramelizes the curtains.
If you're ordering your chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine's Day, be sure to place your order by February 7 at the latest. These treats are for pick-up only.
