When people think of Valentine’s Day, they think of chocolates, and this is for good reason. According to the National Confectioners Association, more than 36 million chocolate boxes are sold in the United States every year. In addition, about 50 percent of women will end up purchasing a chocolate gift for a man.
That’s not just a case of being lazy. Most men would prefer to receive a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day, according to surveys. If you’re considering a gift for your significant other, there’s no need to limit yourself to everyday boxes of chocolate. A wide selection of chocolate is available through specialty online retailers, providing choices between traditional and more inventive chocolate treats.
Asher’s Chocolate Co. has more than 100 years experience in making artisan chocolates, and they ship anywhere in the US. When for a Valentine’s Day gift for someone, here’s a taste of four fantastic products to fit any budget.
1. Sea Salt Caramels
An Asher’s staff favorite, Sea Salt Caramels are a staple chocolate confection that can be the hit of your Valentine’s Day gifting. The candies are made by covering chewy vanilla caramels in our homemade chocolate. Once the chocolate layering has been applied, sea salt is sprinkled on top to satisfy the most intense salt-and-sweet cravings. Sea Salt Caramels are available in milk and dark chocolate and are packaged in a beautiful Asher’s gift box.
2. Chocolate-Covered Pretzels
As one of the most highly rated products sold by Asher’s, Chocolate Covered Pretzels are one of the safest bets you can make. Lightly salted pretzels are glazed in chocolate and packaged into 6.5-ounce coffee bags. In fact, the bags are so gorgeous you won’t need to do any additional wrapping. As with the Sea Salt Caramels, these pretzels are available in both dark and milk chocolate. Also combine these pretzels with other items to give a sampling of different treats.
3. All-Milk Chocolate Lover’s Gift Tray
Sometimes the trouble is choosing just one gift to give — and when you’re dealing with chocolates, it can be tough to narrow your choices. That’s where Asher’s gift trays come in. With the All Milk Chocolate Lover’s Gift Tray, you will receive an array of Asher’s most popular chocolate covered treats including almond bark, chocolate-covered mini-pretzels, nonpareils, chocolate-covered graham crackers, and chocolate-covered standard-size pretzels. Gift trays can feature any combination of dark or milk chocolate to ensure everyone gets his or her favorite flavors.
4. Large Gift Tower
Not for the faint of heart, the Large Gift Tower is the most impressive chocolate gift you will find out on the market. These six stacked chocolate boxes deliver a veritable mountain of candies that your loved one will adore. Included in the box are dark chocolate nonpareils, milk chocolate cordial cherries, milk chocolate pecan caramel patties, pretzels in milk, dark and white chocolate varieties, an assortment of majestic milk and dark chocolates, and a 1-lb. assortment of classic designer chocolates. If the Large Gift Tower is too much for one person, you can opt for the small and medium gift towers.
With such a wide range of chocolates to choose from, you can be confident in finding the right gift to satisfy your love one’s sweet tooth while also touching their heart.
