A nice box of chocolates is a Valentine’s Day standard. It is almost a given that your sweetheart is expecting one. And maybe something more. But for now, let’s focus on the chocolates.
Here is a tip when you are searching for just the right box: Don’t get the cheapest box. Then you look…cheap. Don’t go throwing your money away on the most expensive box, either. It is only going down the toilet in the end.
If this makes sense, read on. There are a few great names of chocolatiers lining your grocery store aisle. Here is a list of the top 5 recommended boxes of chocolates that don’t fall into the gourmet category.
1-Russell Stover may be cheap, but you are getting more than what you pay for. He is an oldie, but a real goodie, when it comes to chocolates. He is also real smooth.
2-Another classic amongst chocolates for Valentine’s Day is DeMet’s Turtles. Again, the chocolate is smooth and not too sweet. The great thing about these candies is the taste of the walnuts and caramel combination beneath the chocolate. Ooo! It is lush.
3-Doves chocolates come in third. If your valentine loves the taste of dark chocolate, any box of Doves darks will do. They are very rich and smooth for dark chocolate.
4-You will find Lindt chocolates in the mid-price range. They specialize in all grades of chocolate from white to dark. It must be the Swiss cows that make their chocolate so good.
5-Some might consider Fannie Mae gourmet. As it is a brand easily found in the supermarket, I have added it here. It also does not break the bank. The chocolate covered strawberries look particularly divine.Tags: box of chocolates, demet turtles, great tasting cheap box of chocolates, Lists, russel stover, valentines chocoolates
