I swear we were just celebrating NYE, and now here we are gearing up for Valentine’s Day already! Can you believe it? Time really does fly! Anyway, Valentine’s Day is a strange holiday to me…there is just so much pressure to find the perfect gift to express our love (or strong like..Lol!)…it can go terribly wrong! Personally, I am all about the thoughtful, personalized gift! It doesn’t have to be super expensive and over the top for me…just has to be sweet! So, when Epiphany Chocolates reached out to see if I’d like to review a box of their Some Like It Hot chocolate collection, and share it with you guys for a Valentine’s Day gift idea, I immediately said YES!! The deciding factor wasn’t totally the chocolate itself. Although, the chocolate is AMAZING! I first tried it last summer when I received a box in my LuckyFabb gift bag…it’s decadent and creamy, and the flavor infusions are so rich! It’s really yummy chocolate …But, for Valentine’s Day, it has to go beyond that! And what sold me on sharing this with you guys was the packaging!
The Some Like It Hot collection comes in a fun Mad Libs wrapper, accompanied by a red sharpie so you can write a fun, personalized (or frisky) note to your significant other! THIS is what sold me! I’m corny…Fab is corny…and chocolate wrapped in Valentine’s Day Mad Libs is so us (read: corny!).
Now, if Fab walked in the door with a box of regular ol’ chocolates, I might not be too impressed, but if Fab walks in the door with a box of gourmet chocolates wrapped in personalized, corny Mad Libs that make me laugh until I can’t breathe….well now, that would be what I would call a thoughtful gift. (I filled out the Mad Libs wrapper for Fab last night…he got a kick out of it. Lol!)
And, like I said the chocolate is amazing! This particular collection comes in either 10 pieces or 18 pieces, and contains three new spicy fudges and caramels; Sinfully Cinnamon (Cinnamon Caramel), Cupid Caliente (Jalapeno Fudge) and Smokin Hot (Smoky Hot Pepper Fudge). I could have eaten 18 pieces of the Sinfully Cinnamon alone. It was sooooo good!
So, a couple more things – first, if you’re interested in trying the Epiphany Chocolates for Valentine’s Day (or forwarding this post to your boo!), you’ll want to be sure to use promo code HEART25 to get 25% off through 2/14. (p.s. Epiphany offers free standard shipping with no minimum purchase!)
