Now a romantic gesture, fruits were initially dipped in chocolate to coerce children into eating them, inspired by the old adage, “a spoonful of sugar is something children really like.” Sweetly strong-arm loved ones with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get your choice of one dozen cupcakes (a $12 value), one dozen chocolate-dipped strawberries (a $10 value), or one large frosted cookie (a $12 value) at Vanillas Coffee Tea Café, located in the Plainfield Plaza.
Cupcake lovers can plunge mouth-first into boxes filled with a dozen pint-sized cakes, which are always available in red velvet with cream-cheese frosting, dark chocolate with vanilla-buttercream frosting, and vanilla with chocolate-buttercream frosting. Treat valentines to a dozen strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, or similarly please sweet-toothed sweethearts with a monstrous chocolate-chip or sugar cookie, available in circular or heart-shaped shapes and decorated with frosting messages (free for Valentine's Day, $3 to $5 for custom wording after that) such as “Happy Valentine’s Day,” “I already fed the dog,” and “What was your name again?”
For additional fees, customers can use this Groupon toward an upgrade for specialty cookies ($15/dozen), cupcakes with added decorations ($18/dozen), a half-dozen chocolate-dipped strawberries with a single rose ($16), or one dozen strawberries with a single rose ($20).
