This Week's Best Food Deals, Starring Cakes in Jars, Fish and Lots of Chocolate
You look pretty good, for a vegan.
Foodbitch's inboxes fill each day with a metric shit-ton of offers, flash sales and discounts. Here are some of this week's foodfull best.
Living Social: 4-Course Chocolate-themed Meal for 2 at NCuisineIt must be close to Valentine's Day, the way restaurants are going choco-crazy and offering love-themed dinners at $75 per head. At least at NCuisine in Lakewood, just $74 will get you dinner for two. It's a pretty small space, and I hear they only take cash, so purchase this soon and bring a few $10 bills for tip.
Gilt Taste: Frosted Cake Jars for $30-$40 It's quite possible that cake jars are the new cake pops, which were the new cake balls, which were the new cupcakes. Have you seen these things? I just about licked my computer screen when these babies popped up. Banana salted caramel cake and icing? In a jar? There aren't enough spoons on earth. Other flavors available are Banana Toasted Coconut, Banana Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Fudge. You can get four cakes for $29.95 or eight for $39.95. I suggest you do so, before I buy them all myself.
Scoutmob: 50% off at Dive Coastal Cuisine This is somewhere I've been meaning to try. Checking out their menu online made my mouth water. There's certainly a buzz for Dive, and it seems now's the time. Try out Dive in University Park for half off. Save some bacon, eat fish. Man, I should be in marketing.
Groupon: $25 for $50 worth of organic groceries delivered from Greenling If you saw this post and this post about that box full o goodies from Greenling and thought, "Hey! I want to do an all-organic rendition of a Chopped episode for my podcast using a box just like that," this is your lucky day. Go fruit and veggie crazy, and see if you can beat out Scott and Lauren's attempts.
Google offers: $10 for $25 worth of gourmet European chocolates at Sokolata The handmade and richness of the chocolates in the photo is what initially caught my eye. Then I admit I snorted a bit at the sight of the buzzword "artisanal." Finally I read on to find out all of their chocolates are vegan. Record scratch. So perhaps this offer is not for my very non-vegan self, but if you're into being all eggless and whatnot, this deal clearly deserves your attention.
