A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Experience the mysteries of this forbidden sweet with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of desserts and chocolate goodies at Theobroma Chocolatier. This Groupon is good at the Montgomery Boulevard store and online.
Theobroma Chocolatier ensures freshness and quality by hand-making most of its cocoa-inspired creations with premium chocolate from Switzerland. The candy selection encompasses everything from chocolate-covered raspberries ($3.50 for a 2.5 oz. bag) to nine-piece assorted-truffle boxes ($10). Add a touch of chocolaty class to your life by replacing everyday items with their molded chocolate counterparts, such as a tennis racquet ($9), cell phone ($5), or long-stem rose ($5). Increase your daily intake of fruit or dairy with Theobroma's chocolate-dipped fresh fruit and gourmet ice cream.
Embark on a blindfolded adventure to see which chocolates contain nuts by trying one of the assortments such as the Theobroma ($18), which consists of whole hand-dipped macadamias, coconut extreme pieces, and assorted milk and dark soft-center chocolates. Coins become sweet treats or a last-minute payment for a hot air balloon you've been eyeing with the chocolate coins in gold or silver (up to 250 coins for 35 cents each). Theobroma, which is Greek for "food of the gods," also has holiday-inspired gifts to delight your spouse, friend, or Greek god.
One Groupon cannot be split between visits and online purchases. Valid for sale items but cannot be combined with other coupons.
Gil's Thrilling (And Filling) Blog reviewed Theobroma Chocolatier, and the shop has had success at the Roadrunner Food Bank Souper Bowl, earning 2009 and 2008 first-place wins in the People's Choice categories of Favorite Dessert and Best Dessert:
- There’s a treasure trove of chocolate sure to please the love of your life. The only danger is that you might not be able to resist the temptation to “sample” some of it and if you do, none of it will make it home. – Gil Garduno, Gil's Thrilling (And Filling) Blog
