A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Celebrate the silky sin that solves so much with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of all-natural chocolate, gourmet coffee, blended drinks, and more at The Chocolate Therapist in Littleton.
The Chocolate Therapist, formerly known as Chocolates by Mary Carol, delights Denver-area denizens with a variety of handcrafted chocolates, fresh-roasted coffees, and refreshing blended drinks. Perk up dormant pleasure centers with a set of custom-made bars such as the three bars in the nuttopia set ($8.75), each of which reinforces the structure of a two-ounce brick of 61% dark chocolate with hemp seeds and sliced almonds. Otherwise, help your tongue get over its bitter breakup with your pancreas by treating it to a pound of assorted chocolates decadently dolloped with nuts, spices, and organic flavoring oils ($19.95). All The Chocolate Therapist's confections pair naturally with Choffy ($15), a coffee-esque drink made of freshly ground organic cocoa beans that—like angel sweat—contains no sugar, fat, or caffeine while still retaining high antioxidant and theobromine components. The Chocolate Therapist also brews up a variety of Red Rock Roasters coffee and serves a variety of blended and smoothie drinks.
Owner Julie Pech once ate a portion of chocolate every day for eighteen months without gaining weight or aging, proving that chocolate can be part of a healthy lifestyle and disproving the common belief that too much chocolate will cause the skin to break out in a colorful candy coating. Her book, The Chocolate Therapist: A User's Guide to the Extraordinary Health Benefits of Chocolate, recommends a variety of uses for the versatile vixen. The Chocolate Therapist opens at 6 a.m. Monday through Wednesday (with shorter hours on Saturday and Sunday) so that gourmand early birds can get their cocoa fix before an exhausting day of swallowing worms.
This offer is only valid for in-store purchases.
Although The Chocolate Therapist has few reviews, the Denver Post featured the company, calling it "the chocolate cure."
The Chocolate Therapist
A lifetime proponent of good health and nutrition practices, Julie Pech heard a knock of opportunity the moment she heard of the health benefits of dark chocolate. She decided to approach her long-ignored dream of becoming a published author head on, and she quickly penned The Chocolate Therapist: A User’s Guide to the Extraordinary Health Benefits of Chocolate. Motivated to further share the healthy way to enjoy great chocolate, Pech then opened a storefront in 2008 where expert chocolatiers craft a host of healthy sweets each day from all-natural ingredients. Julie has also expanded into gourmet beverages and now the staff also mix up hot lattes and cappuccinos from fresh-roasted coffee and farm-fresh, hormone-free milk, and pour cups of rich sipping chocolate that offer a liquid alternative to inhaling chocolate from your at-home vaporizer.
