Chocolate is a lot like sandpaper. It smoothes the rough edges off just about everything. Of course, good handmade chocolate can flatten your budget too, one reason why the deal at Schakolad Chocolate Factory is a treat for your sweet teeth.
Through the end of August, the Davie Factory is offering a "Beat the Heat" special
of $1 chocolates. Mondays are 12-ounce lattes; Tuesdays,
chocolate-dipped pretzels; Wednesday, chocolate-dipped strawberries;
Thursdays, scoop of ice cream; Fridays, chocolate flat rose lollipop.

here's one more Schakolad deal, though it's one-shot and ending soon.
If you've got kids as crazy about chocolate as you are, there's space
available this Thursday in the last chocolate-making for kids in the
season. Cost is $9.50 per child, and the 45-minute class includes a bit
of explanation of chocolate lore and production, then the chance for
each kid to make his/her own chocolate treats, which will probably be
gobbled up on the way home.
On the other hand, it will probably also smooth a few rough edges off your day too.
