Chocolate Shops Get Sweeter in Time for Valentine's Day

Nothing cures the post Mardi Gras malaise like a box of chocolates. Whether it’s a surprise from your significant other, your best friend or your mother, everyone should indulge in a truffle or two on Valentine’s Day. While some of the less romantic lovers will try to pull off a cheap box of Russell Stovers, there’s no need to sully your V-Day sweet tooth with D-grade sweets from Walgreens when Sucre and Blue Frog are around the corner.
