With spring on the horizon, children will soon be hunting down and rounding up the townspeople's chocolate for trials that mock the very notion of justice. Stock and secure your private chocolate cellar with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of handmade European chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory on 19th Street Northwest. At Schakolad, a parade of artistic confections derives from rich deposits of trufflematter and ganache stones—to the great satisfaction of sweet-toothed chocologists.
Schakolad Chocolate Factory, pronounced just like the chocolate factory it's named after, exemplifies chocolate craft by freshly preparing all of its decadent morsels on-site and out of the highest quality ingredients. The Schakolad world is one in which strawberries enjoy a casual bath in chocolate streams and one-bite truffles dress themselves in polite paper ruffles under the meticulous eye of trained chocolate artists. A boutique experience greets all customers, with seasonal marches of cocoa bunnies and sweetly arranged displays of assorted treats.
Although today's deal is good toward any of Schakolad's chocolate or fudge custom creations, $15 covers a variety of shareable edibles. Chocolate business-card boxes ($17) leave a temporary impression on the hungry corporate elite, and a bunny box ($10.50) filled with foil-wrapped chocolate eggs is a delicious departure from carrot-based Easter gifts. Those who have parted ways with sugar can hold onto their saccharine indulgences with sugar-free gift boxes ($19).
Ten Yelpers give Schakolad Chocolate Factory a four-star average:
- Delicious, unique and great service! I went by to get some little Easter treats for my siblings. They have all sorts of chocolate stuff and molds. I want to go back as soon as I have a good excuse. – Lana B., 4/2/10
- I thought the dark chocolate was great - not the darkest I've ever had, but definitely worthy of praise. – Chris C., 6/9/09
