Champagne and chocolate, free


Portland’s Dean’sSweets is celebrating its one-year anniversary by giving visitors to its Middle Street store between now and Dec. 12  a free champagne truffle. No purchase is necessary (but trust me, you’ll end up buying at least one or two to take home; the salt caramels are divine). And wouldn’t truffles be the perfect ending to a Thanksgiving meal?

Can’t get to Dean’s? Then place a phone or web order, and Dean’s will tuck in a free two-piece box of those champagne truffles.
