San Antonio – If you’re looking to express your Valentine’s Day love with chocolate candy, Consumer Reports’ taste testers tried some familiar and some fancy.

“It’s not a dream job. In fact, some chocolates with a good reputation are really bad chocolates,” said Consumer Reports editor Kevin Doyle.

For example, Godiva’s signature chocolate truffle gift box is described as “chewy” and “waxy,” according to Consumer Reports testers. Evaluators called Harry & David’s signature chocolate truffles “plastic” and “chalky”.

“Real good chocolate should be shiny, it’s not dull, it’s lively, not that waxy or chewy, and in terms of taste, sugar isn’t the first thing you should taste when you bite into it A good piece of chocolate,” Doyle said.

Doyle’s favorite is Dandelion Chocolate, an artisan company based in San Francisco. The Single-Origin Truffle Collection ($45) tops everyone’s list with its rich, complex desserts.


If you want to appeal to foodies, try the Vosges Haut-Chocolat Exotic Truffle Collection ($34). It has fresh flavors like mustard, macadamia, olive oil and curry for the adventurous palate.

Do you want to give a gift that is sure to impress? According to testers, the Formosa Bonbon Box ($31) is delicious and beautiful. There are also gluten-free, vegetarian and alcohol-free options.

If you want to give chocolate to not only win but also to impress your lover, give dark chocolate – the darker the better.

“The cocoa beans used to make dark chocolate contain flavanols, which are antioxidants that protect cells and help control inflammation,” says Doyle.

Think dark chocolate is too bitter? The panel found these delicious high-cocoa chocolate bars:

  • Ghirardelli Intense Dark Twilight Delight Bar for $2.90

  • Hu Organic Simple Dark Chocolate Bar for $6.70

  • Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bars are just 60 cents.
