Sarris Candies - It's what's for Valentines Day.

As long as I can remember, during the second weekend in February, I've always hoped and prayed that one of those big, fancy, assorted chocolate collections would find it's way to me.

I didn't want flowers, and you could keep your perfume. But for all that is good and sweet in this world, hand over the chocolate box.

Oh how I love chocolate. And I love good, quality, high grade chocolate.

This past week I've been shoving my face full of Sarris Candies. Sarris is classified in my book as "good chocolate". Quality chocolate. We told you about them just a few months ago, when we were in full holiday mode.



Aside from the 8oz assorted box I've totally devoured in the past few days, I've also come to love their dutch processed cocoa and bloc chocolate for baking cookies and sipping hot chocolate. It's true, chocolate cake does taste better when high quality dutch cocoa is used.

So who has a sweet tooth? Am I the only one?


GET IT YOURSELF! There is still time to shower someone you love with the gift of Sarris Candies. Just visit their website to hook yourself up.

WIN IT! One lucky Simple reader will receive a sweet prize pack retailing over $50. Included in the pack will be hand-made assorted chocolates, chocolate covered pretzels, the all new chocolate fondue and ice cream topping, and my favorite, a canister of their Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder.

*I was provided some Sarris Candies to facilitate this honest review.
