Chocoholics would adore cocoa beans for creating chocolate if they didn't also sprout magical beanstalks that house giants who steal chocolate from humans. Eat your way through mixed feelings with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a Chocolate 101 class with a 16-piece box of chocolates at Xoxolat in Vancouver (a $45 value). A schedule of class times is available here.

Modelled after sweets from classic European chocolatiers, Xoxolat's award-winning chocolate makers concoct an assortment of bars, truffles, and artisanal chocolate creations. During Chocolate 101 sessions, instructors imbue pupils with chocolate-related factoids, such as how to distinguish different bean flavour profiles and how Mayans built non-melting chocolate sundials.

In addition to a 10 per cent discount on any shop purchases made directly after class, guests receive a 16-piece box of chocolate truffles to savour at home, share with friends, or taunt lactose intolerance enemies.
