A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a segway. Safely savor tasty treats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get either a chocolate-tasting class or a candy-making class at Tasty Image in Jupiter (up to a $31.79 value).
Tasty Image modernizes the ancient flavors of the cocoa bean with edible chocolate photos, chocolate fountains, chocolate truffles, and more. Two-hour chocolate-tasting classes take place on Friday or Saturday nights, allowing customers to bring a box of wine or slurp complimentary coffee while tasting more than 20 varieties of truffles and chocolates in a group of up to 20 people. Daily candy-making classes submerge students in a deep, delicious sea as trained chocolatiers demonstrate how to melt, decorate, and sculpt chocolate into functioning Bavarian glockenspiels. After practicing on professional equipment and chocolate-tempering tools, guests are invited to take their creations with them or secretly eat the whole stash on the scooter ride home.
The printer inside Tasty Image hums its monotone song and produces a high-definition photograph—on a thick sheet of chocolate. But It's not a waste of candy. The machine uses FDA-approved, food-grade inks to create readily consumable, framed chocolate photographs or personalized lollipops. The ink is entirely odorless and flavorless and serves as mere decoration for the cocoa beneath. It’s treats like this that make Tasty Image so different from other chocolate stores.
The international chocolate shop's offerings go well beyond the simple printed image as well. Using another method, the staff provides kits with edible-ink markers that kids can use to color in chocolate butterflies before devolving them back to caterpillars with a few swift bites. Each shop also carries boxes of truffles, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and even raw chocolate, which is used in Tasty Image’s BYOB chocolate making classes.
