For the last few years, I’ve blogged about Romance on Valentine’s Day. Makes sense for a Romance writer. But there’s something else that defines Valentine’s Day and I don’t know how I’ve missed it until now. CHOCOLATE. 🙂
There are many different kinds of chocolate:
- Milk chocolate (my personal favorite)
- Dark chocolate
- Bittersweet chocolate
- Semi-sweet chocolate
- White chocolate
And those are just the basic kinds!
We can go a step further, too. There’s the fancy kind:
- Belgian Chocolate
- Roche Ferrer
And the simple, inexpensive kind:
- Cadbury (Easter bunny, anyone?)
- Russell Stover
Now I don’t know about you but I don’t think expense defines a gift. I think a gift from the heart means more than a gift that costs a lot of money. A gift remembered is more special than a gift reminded,
I wouldn’t turn down the expensive kind of milk chocolate. But I’m cheap n’ easy. give me drug store bought, milk chocolate red foil covered hearts any day. Besides, Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year we can eat chocolate and not feel guilty. (Okay there’s also Halloween, and your birthday …)
So what do you think? How important is the price of the gift when giving or receiving? And more importantly, what’s YOUR favorite kind of chocolate? And let’s be specific, okay?
