Nothing says I love you better than a packet of chocolates and as Linda Grayson has rightly said, “There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” So be that friend; that lover who blends happiness in the form of a dark and sultry piece of chocolate this Chocolate Day and indulge in a sin pardonable to all. Following are some extremely saccharine delicacies, fit to weaken anyone on their knees!
Price: Ranging from Rs.149 (for 5 pieces) to Rs.749 (for 24 pieces)
This Italian chocolate has been fluttering hearts since 1982. Comprising of roasted hazelnuts covered in a thin wafer shell filled with hazelnut chocolate covered in milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts, these little balls of love actually translate to ‘rock’ or ‘boulder’ owing to its shape and size. You can buy them in a pack of three, five, sixteen and twenty-four. Combine them with a bouquet of red roses and you are sorted!
Cadbury Silk Oreo
Ranging from “kuch metha ho jaaye” to the jingle “kiss me, close your eyes..” Cadbury has been sweetening lives since ages. Now, their ‘Silk’ range of chocolates have been making news as they have combined two sins together; soft milk chocolate and the crunchy Oreo cookies. They are new and selling fast, so if you haven’t got your hands on them yet, what is a better day to share it with your lover than 9th February Chocolate Day!
Cadbury Silk/ Caramel
Price: Rs.60 and Rs.70 respectively
It’s everything already mentioned above and only a tad bit different. In case, the one infused with Oreo is too sweet for you or not you or your lover’s choice, then opt for the classic Silk or the one with some golden coloured caramel to touch your lips.
Price: Rs.250 for 6 pieces
Nestle launched Alpino to take on Ferrero Rocher and to grab a significant market share in the gifting segment. Hence, Alpino is a cheaper yet tasty substitute for its competitor; only, it comes with an add-on perk i.e a tiny love message for the eater like “You are my dream that came true”. What better occasion to gift such a message than Chocolate Day on 9th February.
Price: Rs.45 for a 31gm bar and Rs.99 for an 80gm bar
