Though chocolate was designed for household uses, such as staining furniture and cleaning VCR tape heads, researchers now find it's also an effective before-bed tongue moisturizer. Put chocolate to work with today's Groupon: for $22, you get $45 worth of handcrafted cocoa treats from SweetBliss online.
Formerly Ralph Lauren's longtime personal chef, Ilene C. Shane has come forward with her own line of gourmet, Belgian chocolate candies using handmade components, such as caramel and peanut butter, to create swoon-inducing desserts. Crunch into milk chocolate covered potato stix ($10 for 4 oz. bag) or send a realistic chocolate tool box ($28) to the most devoted Home Improvement fan-fiction writer in your family. Sweet Bliss' bits of cacao-covered heaven are sold in high-end stores, including Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, but Groupon-holding chocolate lovers will have their treats delivered to their homes, where they are safe from overzealous perfume salespeople and marauding marsupials.
