Surveyed chocolates again heading into Valentine's Day. Here's a quick set of recommendations for you last minute shoppers out there:

BEST STRAIGHT CHOCOLATE FLAVOR: Arriba Truffle from Sahagun

BEST GANACHE TEXTURE: DePaula

BEST GIFT PACKAGING: DePaula normally, but Sahagun has a really cool box they just announced for VD.

BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK: Pix

MOST EXOTIC: Pandan with Coconut Milk from DePaula or Thai Chili with Kaffir Lime, Coconut Milk and Galangal from Wingnut or Cardamon with Burnt Sugar and Sesame from Alma (tie, although of these I like Alma's best)

WEIRDEST FLAVOR THAT STILL TASTES GOOD: Blue Cheese Truffle from Pix

BEST NON-CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE: White Chocolate Pineapple from Hot Chefs or Bananas Foster from DePaula (tie)

BEST NON-CHOCOLATE CONFECTION: Ginger Almond Toffee from Alma
