So Valentine's Day is just around the corner. And what a better gift to give than chocolate. Chocolate has been associated with Valentine's Day since the mid-20th century...though V-day itself apparently has been around since the middle ages. I personally think the holiday is overrated. A few of my relationships have ended either on or around Valentine's day so I can't say the holiday brings back any fond memories for me either. Also I'm really picky about chocolate so I've always asked people not to get me chocolate on Valentine's or Christmas unless they're really sure about it.
Anyhow with all that said, I thought I'd make a post about what your Valentine's Day chocolate gift says about you and your love, or lack thereof.
You give your girl a bag of Hershey's kisses:
You're cute. But this gift yells that you just aren't that into her. I mean anyone can go into a Duane Reade and buy a bag of "chocolate" kisses. I don't even think Hershey makes real chocolate anymore. They put so much crap into their chocolate that the chocolate disappears in a mire of artificial flavoring. You might as well have just got her a card. At least that way she won't have to spit out your gift.
You give your girl a box of Godiva chocolates:
Ok you're getting there. Not too original, but at least the quality of chocolate is a step up from Hershey. Unfortunately, Goodiva is now making many of their chocolates in factories. The quality has gone down quite a bit from when they started, but the flavors are still interesting enough to keep me coming back. Or at least peering in their windows wishing for old Godiva.
You give your girl a box of exotic Vosges truffles:
Now we're getting there. These truffles are high class. And even better if you got her the spicy ones. Those say you love her AND have a flair for the exotic and spicy. Or get her the honey ones and call her your honey bunch. Or get her the bacon and chocolate bar and call her your bacon-bits. Whatever you call her at least the chocolate will be yummy.
You get your girl the $1000 or $25,000 sundae at Serendipity.
Call me. I'd be your valentine any day. Seriously.
