My Valentine’s Day fantasy involves the wrong Seamless delivery showing up to my door—with a big pizza—and I get to keep it without remorse. But apparently “other people” are into chocolate, which is a risky business, in my eyes. Chocolate can be so boring. The boxes are all variations on a theme (rectangular prism), and the fillings are the same wherever you go. There’s gooey caramel that gets all over. A huge chunk of almond that almost takes out your fillings. A chocolate cube filled with more chocolate. You get the idea.
So today I’ve searched for the most non-traditional chocolates, in flavor, shape, packaging—to make sure your gift-giving doesn’t disappoint. The standard was simply: chocolates that can’t be mistaken for any other chocolates.
Now that’s my kind of valentine.
