Valentines Day- Purdy’s Chocolates

I love chocolate and I know many of you do. After all, my Twitter does say lover of chocolate. I prefer a fluffy milk chocolate without nuts. But I have been known to enjoy dark chocolates and other varieties. When we were at the ShesConnected conference, Purdy’s Chocolates was there too. I was very excited about this and I quickly found out I was in love with their Hedge Hogs. So when we went to catch our train home, we had to stop by their Union station store. A little something for me and some Halloween treats for the kids. 

Now with Valentines Day approaching, I am starting to get excited about some yummy chocolate treats again. My family knows I like chocolate, but they do too. when Purdy’s sent me the 10″ True Love Velvet Heart I was nice enough to wait for my family to arrive home before opening. Maybe that was not very smart of me. A big family can wipe out a box of treats in no time. I managed to save a few for hubs to have when he arrived home 🙂

This heart shaped box of chocolates is the perfect gift for a loved one this Valentines Day. The packaging is very pretty. Soft velvet cover with an antique style key. The box contained a huge variety of chocolates, bot dark and milk. I was thrilled to see 2 Hedge Hogs in the box.  For $29.95 this could be yours for that special someone. Quality chocolate, beautiful presentation and allover yummy. I would not be truthful if I said we saved any of this box for Valentines day. Looks like maybe we will be placing an order online for another box. This is a great feature to, if you are sending to someone that does not live near you. We are not close enough to a store to make the trip. Happy for online shopping. 

Checkout these great chocolates for yourself.

It was really hard to save some to share. They were all so good.
