Chocolate tastes even better when your eyes roll back in your head and say, "Uh ma gawd, vis is dewishus." But if you ever did that alone, strangers would think you were strange, because it is strange to be expressive while alone. That's why you have to tell your friends about today's deal, so you can make those faces over delicious chocolates together and enhance your tasting experience. Today's Groupon gets you $50 worth of artisan truffles and chocolatey morsels at Romanicos Chocolate for $20.
The charming and intimate store's caramel-colored walls and old-fashioned counter made of chocolatey wood prepare your chocolate palate to delight in the delectable chocolate treats. Woo your sweetie with a sultry box of six single-flavor truffles ($18)—such as tipsy almond, sinful amaretto, or sexy cherry—or customize your own box with your favorite flavors. An assortment of tasty chocolate artwork decorated with vibrant colors and designs ($26) makes the perfect hostess gift for upcoming holiday parties. Gourmet chocolate bars ($8) in exotic flavor combinations such as wasabi and honey, sea salt and soy beans, and nutmeg pistachio are perfect stocking stuffers, everyday gifts, or lunch-time treats for those whose tastes extend beyond the traditional, yet deadly, combination of peanut butter and chocolate, the "tin foil and bleach" of the candy kingdom. If you're in the market for cognitive dissonance, Romanicos’ chocolate sushi ($36 for six pieces) will fool and delight your senses. Romanicos even offers some vegan-friendly dark-chocolate treats.
The friendly staff at Romanicos Chocolate understands chocolate like chocolate experts do, and are happy to make a suggestion if you have trouble choosing. Your Groupon is good for in-store chocolate purchases only, and extra Groupons can go to all your chocolate-loving friends to keep their pantries stocked with gobs of chocolatey goodness.

Thy Silver Tongue
Humanity’s true greatness lies in the ability to enjoy candy, a pleasure somewhat shared by animal brethren, but completely lost on modern robots, who, despite many other technological advances (deadly titanium claws, 9-pin firewire ports), tragically lack a sense of taste. Groupon’s own resident robot, Adonis 12, sampled some confectionary creations and gave us these literally tasteless reviews:
Chocolate-covered Pretzels: “These sweet, twisted falsehoods betray no difference from their bare-flesh counterparts, to my indifferent jaws. Both mash with similar yielding resignation.”
Wax Bottles: “The translucent blue liquid contained within these wax pouches serves as a soothing lubricant to my gyroscopic balance unit, but nothing more. Oh, to be a man.”
Pixy Stix: “This tube of raw, uncompromising sugar is rapidly corroding my sensory matrix! The granules are corrupting my ethics calibrator! Quickly, deactivate my solar core, before I-…MUST…DESTROY…MANKIND.
