With summer 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 $10, you get $22 worth of handmade European chocolates at Schakolad Chocolate Factory in the Vineyards Shopping Center. This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only, and purchased items from the store can be shipped for an extra charge.
At Schakolad Chocolate Factory, 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 masculine Father's Day chocolate motorcycles ($12) and sweetly arranged displays of assorted bonbons.
While today's deal is good toward any of Schakolad's custom creations, $20 fully covers a variety of shareable edibles. Chocolate business-card boxes leave a temporary impression on the hungry corporate elite (starting at $15), and regular, large, or ultimate assorted normal or sugar-free boxes pack variety for candy-grubbing coworkers and pecan-loving socialites (starting at $15). Usually available year round, the popular fresh, large, and long-stem strawberries can be dipped in milk, dark, or white chocolate ($3.50).

About Schakolad Chocolate Factory
Baruch Schaked, cofounder of Schakolad Chocolate Factory, has melted, molded, and handcrafted chocolates across the globe since 1969. First working under his chocolatier father-in-law in Argentina, Schaked eventually traveled across Europe, participating in courses, attending seminars, and occasionally taking a dip in a chocolate fountain. Years later, after running a confectionary in southern Florida, Baruch was planning to sell the shop in favor of retirement. His son Edgar lovingly interceded in his determination to keep the three-generation family passion alive. Together, the two opened the first Schakolad Chocolate Factory in 1995, focusing on crafting fresh, hand-dipped chocolates.
