A delicately prepared chocolate can make a woman's heart sing, a child's mouth smile, and a crossing guard's whistle taste even more like justice. Stock up on tasty times with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of handmade European-style chocolates and fudge at Schakolad Chocolate Factory in Arlington.
Schakolad Chocolate Factory's confectionery craftspeople freshly prepare decadent chocolate morsels in 19 featured flavors for special occasions and everyday treats. The boutique greets customers with displays of one-bite truffles modeling their paper-ruffle fashions and comely strawberries tittering merrily as they bathe in chocolate streams. As they browse, shoppers can pluck assorted chocolates to fill a 15-piece custom box ($15+), choosing from shareable edibles such as cheesecake ganache and key-lime truffles. Predesigned boxes range from chocolate business-card boxes ($15+) for temporarily impressing the hungry corporate elite to half-pound assorted boxes ($16.50) packed with nut-topped and sugar-dusted varieties. Schakolad's chocologists even enable those who have parted ways with sugar to hold onto their saccharine indulgences with sugar-free gift boxes ($17.50+).
