Guide to the Best Valentine’s Day Chocolates

Who doesn’t love receiving chocolate on Valentine’s Day? I think this is one of the holidays where people tell themselves it’s OK to indulge in sweet treats…at least, that’s how I look at it.

It’s never easy trying to find the perfect box of chocolates; in the famous words of Forest Gump “You never know what you’re gonna get.”  That’s why a team of NPR employees spent two weeks blind taste-testing more than 30 brands of chocolate from all over the world to try and find the best tasting chocolate. (What a  tough job…)

Some of the varieties they tried out were:

White, milk, dark, fudge, with cherry, cherry bombs, truffles, more fudge, cherry fudge, chocolate from Java, coffee-infused beans — even chocolate massage oil and chocolate lip gloss, with a dark, bitter flavor. (Yum!)

After gorging on the good (and not-so-good) stuff, NPR’s stuffed staff reached some decisions about the best — and worst — Valentine’s Day online-orderable gifts to give this holiday season. Read the guide, and meet some old favorites, some new treats — and some chocolate that will definitely win you a few points with your sweet.
