What You'll Get
After tinkering with the time capsule at Mount Vesuvius, scientific explorers unleashed a flood of chocolate lava stored away by a mischievous child. Savor the fruit of this ancient prank with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a gourmet-apple tray or a box of chocolate-covered strawberries at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, located in Webster (up to a $40.25 value).
The skilled confectioners at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory treat fresh, delicious fruit like a prize boar, bronzing it in the most delectable of taxidermies. Choose between a tray of seven gourmet apples or 18 chocolate-covered strawberries before each is transformed from staid tree things into fantastically edible works of chocolart. Apples begin their journey with a protective coating of caramel made in a copper kettle, before being rolled in your choice of toppings, including plain, rocky road, apple pie, cheesecake, and cookies and cream. The apple's metamorphosis into a decadent, power-mad king of flavor is made absolute when some varieties are then smothered in rich milk or dark chocolate from the 140-plus-year-old Guittard Chocolate Company and drizzled with white confection. Strawberries lack toppings but come drenched in the same tongue-swaddlingly rich chocolate and white confection, which has an intense flavor frequently compared to bungee jumping from a nose-diving airplane.
