2010 really was the year of the online deals. Group buying sites were popping everywhere, in the hopes of capturing a slice of the online couponing market. No one can resist a good deal!
One point of interest is the kind of deals one gets. Most common deal sites peddle spa services, restaurants, and sport classes offers. What, nothing for the sweet tooth? No cookies at 50% off, no gourmet balsamic vinegar half price? We thought this was something we could do something about!
So we started the Savorique Deal Site, where you can find unbelievable prices on some pretty sweet deals. Literally.

Do you like receiving gift baskets? Usually they’re made with a pack of stale nuts, a hunk of low-quality Cheddar and some gross-tasting chocolate pretzels, inside a cheap basket.
Only recently have some really interesting basket makers come to light. They use quality/organic ingredients. They give you a great basket that can actually be re-used in the house or for another gift. Now, I don’t mind getting these at home or at the office…

The delicious, golden, lightweight oil is extracted, traditionally by the berbers, from the rare Argania Spinosa Tree. The seed grows and is fairly traded only in one geographic location: the dry, arid plains off the coast of Southern Morocco, in a region called Essaouira.
Argan Oil is high in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, making it great for all sorts of skin conditions such as eczema, wrinkles, and dry skin. This exceptional oil is also high in phenols and carotenes. But “food-grade” argan oil is also being purchased by the ladies for cosmetic purposes since it is so rich in fatty acids (oleic). It is said to be nature’s anti aging skin food, beneficial to the skin’s overall structure and elasticity, efficient against UV exposure and in treating psoriasis as well as reducing sebum production (National Center for Biotechnology Information , U.S. National Library of Medicine). As delicious as it is healthful, Argan Oil is perfect sprinkled on salads, couscous, or with grilled fish. Moroccans have used it for bread dipping for decades, and it’s recently become one of the culinary world’s latest ‘cult’ ingredients. The slightly orange color and distinct aroma and delicate flavor makes Argan Oil a delightful replacement for truffle oil or extra virgin olive oil in any recipe.
Try our organic Argan Oil by Alili Morocco. Currently on sale for a limited time only.

Each chocolate truffle from Vosges comes with a story, a worthy detail on the ingredients, the process, the flavors. Co-founders Julie Lang and Katrina Markoff strive to deliver a memorable tasting experience.
Vosges uses non-traditional spices from around the world such as Indian curry or Hungarian paprika. Named after a tribe in Northeast India, Naga is their most popular truffle. It is aimed at the adventurous palate. The Naga truffle is a mix of natural coconut extract, milk chocolate and a pinch of fragrant curry powder. It is dipped in milk chocolate and finished with a sprinkling of Indian curry.
Today, we give you the opportunity to be adventurous by trying this popular chocolate truffle at a discount rate to celebrate the arrival of Vosges Haut Chocolat on Savorique.

Our first deal of the fall! Since we’re all back to work we thought we would get you the Soothing Collection from Oliver Kita. I have personally always recommended Oliver’s amazing chocolates, which ranks high amongst my personal favorites. His truffles are no exception. This collection has the double effect of soothing chocolate and exciting flavors like expresso and mint. $35 instead of $40.

Katie, the CEO of DAS Foods, our gourmet caramel vendor, emailed us recently to share the result of their successful cost cutting program. We were impressed and asked her if we could publish the content of her email to show you how a great food manufacturer can work hard to bring the price of its gourmet treats down for you.
So here it is:
In tough economic times it has become difficult to come across good news. That is why it is my pleasure to report to you good news today. For the past year we have been working diligently on making our facility more efficient: this included energy and utility related savings as well as consolidation of the ingredients we use in our caramels and lollipops. Now this work is complete and I would like to share some of the improvements with you:
a. Preventing wastage -recycling water used for cooling equipment
b. Adding outside wall Insulation – helped reduce our gas bills by 25%
Effective use of space
a. Re-negotiated lease cost thus reducing overhead
b. Consolidation of the Caramel and Lollipop facilities helped to spread expenses over several product lines
a. Streamlining ingredients- consolidated ingredients used for making our caramels and lollipops so that many of them can be used across both lines.
b. Reducing SKUs- we have streamlined our flavor offerings to prioritize our best sellers. As a result we have discontinued two flavors- Chai Latte and Lemon& Honey. These two flavors will no longer be available to our wholesale customers.
Implementation of these improvements enabled us to offer you lower prices on all of our caramels. We strongly believe that new more competitive pricing on our caramels will allow consumers to enjoy them every day and not just during special occasions.
As a result, Savorique could reduce the retail price of those fabulous French soft caramels by about 33% on average! We invite you to take advantage of this great price cut now.

For a while now, Julia Baker has been producing chocolate confections, using traditional French techniques she learned at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. The packaging is so lovely that it rivals the boxes found around MarieBelle’s chocolates. And with the new announcement that Julia Baker’s confections are 25% off on Savorique.com, we can’t help but making the comparison!
