The ancient Greek adage "life is like a box of chocolates" helps to explain those peculiar days when one finds oneself swimming in coconut shavings or taking a long shower after a freak caramel-tanker accident. Ponder those delicious, life-changing moments with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of chocolate treats at The Chocolate Shoppe in Greensburg. Today's deal is good for in-store purchases, or phone orders.
Since owner Melissa O'Brien's humble beginnings crafting homemade confections in her kitchen, The Chocolate Shoppe has made its name by coating any delectable edible in a creamy chocolate casing. Whether it's oreos or jalapeños, The Chocolate Shoppe can drench and dip treats in dark, white, or milk chocolate. Customers can finally satisfy their desire for dessert at breakfast with a half pound of bacon trapped in a chocolate shell ($8), or bend the notion of the apple-a-day rule by digging their incisors into a granny smith apple encased in gooey caramel and a double layer of chocolate ($11–$13 for most).
