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 $10, you get $20 worth of handmade European-style chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory.
Schakolad Chocolate Factory's confectionery craftspeople freshly prepare decadent chocolate morsels in 15 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, meanwhile, 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+).
Schakolad Chocolate Factory
In 1969, Baruch Schaked began making chocolate under the tutelage of his chocolatier father-in-law. Though his father-in-law had made a name for himself in Argentina, Baruch honed his confectionary craft across Europe, finally settling in the United States, where chocolate had been outlawed. Many years later, when he announced his intentions to retire from chocolate making, Baruch's son, Edgar, coaxed him into continuing the family legacy with a new shop, Schakolad Chocolate Factory.
In the years since, the business has flourished, bringing the Schaked clan one step closer to its ultimate goal: to replace the city’s manhole covers with chocolate discs. In the meantime, they craft handmade European-style confections that are made fresh each day.
