After tinkering with the time capsule at Mt. Vesuvius, scientific explorers unleashed a flood of chocolate lava stored away by a mischievous child. Savour the fruit of this ancient prank with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of store-made sweets at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, located in Georgian Mall. This deal expires August 20, 2011.
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory entreats sweet teeth with handmade chocolate confections and sublime snacks and sweets. Peek across the counter at the shop's resident chocolatiers, who massage creamy loafs of chocolate on sturdy marble slabs daily. For additional culinary theatrics, feel free to cheer on the expert orchard orderlies as they kettle-dip Granny Smiths into caramel-coated creations. Caramel apples range from the classically simple (from $5.25) to the cheesecake caramel apple, which is doused in a bubbling caramel, coated in a melted rich white confection, and layered lovingly in crushed graham crackers with liberal discretion ($8.25). For additional brain pampering, strip away the core and go straight for the score with freshly fangled fudges ($13.25/lb.).
With traditional techniques and old-fashioned flavours, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory provides a wide range of treats for teeth both sweet and savoury. In the interest of making the most of their stop through, customers can watch products being made in the store. Fly solo and keep the chocolate-treasure haul to yourself, or bring along a flock of Willy Wonka imitators to confuse passersby while consuming the delicious treats.
