Discounted Choco, Today Only! Will Charles Chocolates End Up Replacing Schmidt and Scharffen Berger?

Appears as if Charles Chocolates is putting down roots – look for their new and improved flagship store in early 2011 at the Westfield Mall on Market near Union Sqaure.

Perhaps the new construction will make up for our recently shutdown luxury/artisanal chocolate factories – you know, Joseph Schmidt Confections in the Mission and  Scharffen Berger in Berkeley?

We Can Only Hope.

Now, I’ve never tasted the Charles Chocolates, but I was tempted by today’s one-day-only deal, where you pay $25 to get a $50 credit either for use in the store or online.

(Speaking of nevers, I’ve never had an issue with any type of Living Social kind of deal, but be sure to tell me if you do, like if you end up in a That Takes the Cake Cupcakes / Groupon kind of fiasco.)

Enjoy.
