Chocolate gifts became synonymous with Valentine's Day after launching cocoa powder into the air on the Fourth of July failed to inspire patriotic sentiment. Give a seasonally appropriate gift with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a Valentine's Day package of eight gourmet chocolate truffles and red-velvet cake (a $26 value) from Sweetie's in Winston-Salem. This Groupon can be redeemed in-store on February 10, 11, 12, and 14 only.
Sweetie's tantalizes covetous taste buds with carefully crafted chocolate truffles, decadently dense cakes, and gift baskets that can turn a sworn enemy into a fumbling paramour. Eight delicately detailed truffles nestle in a tender red box waiting to be plucked from among their all-natural, handmade brethren and dropped onto the tongue of a beloved human or low-necked giraffe. Valentines with a penchant for keepsakes will coo over the collectable candy jar, which comes swollen with red-velvet cake and swirled with decorative ribbon. To ensure that the appropriate message is expressed, Sweetie's encloses a handmade Valentine's Day card, which can be personalized to express one's eternal love or share a one-sided knock-knock joke.
