Best Milk Chocolate
I’m a big fan of milk chocolate and so are Viewpoints members. Their favorite types of milk chocolate were Dove’s Milk Chocolate Minis and the Godiva Chocolatier Milk Chocolate Assortment.
Viewpoints Rating: 81/100
Est. Price: $36
If you are looking for an exquisite, upscale chocolate gift, look no further than the Godiva Chocolatier Milk Chocolate Assortment. This gift comes in a fabulous gold box tied with a ribbon and contains 22 pieces of high-quality chocolate. There are a variety of flavors and several of the pieces have different fillings. Most reviewers raved about the decadent pleasure of eating Godiva Chocolate. The main complaint with this fabulous gift? The price: reviewers unanimously said that this assortment of chocolates would be good for a gift or a splurge, not an everyday item.
“These chocolates are definitely a luxury item, I think they are great for gifts. They are very smooth and flavorful and creamy and come in a good variety.”— matmars, Reviewer since 2013
Viewpoints Rating: 99/100
If you are looking for chocolate that’s a little bit less expensive than Godiva, Dove chocolate is the way to go. Dove Smooth Milk Chocolate Minis received rave reviews for their smoothness, rich chocolate texture, and reasonable price. Available at grocery stores and pharmacies, Dove Smooth Milk Chocolate Minis are the perfect, easy-to-find last minute gift. Viewpoints members loved that these chocolates are individually wrapped, and each foil wrapper has an inspirational message on the inside. Dove Smooth Milk Chocolate Minis are a Valentine treat idea good for any milk chocolate lover in your life.
“Dove Smooth Milk Chocolate is just that – smooth! It melts in your mouth – very rich and delicious.” —shawneemom, Reviewer since 2011
“It is just so silky smooth. Unlike many other chocolates on the market. It reminds me of a high end chocolate brand, but with a low end cost. Which I love.” — chinkums, Reviewer since 2008
Best Dark Chocolate
If your sweetheart likes their chocolate on the darker side, Viewpoints Reviewers highly recommend Dove Dark Chocolate.
Once again, Dove Chocolate made Viewpoints reviewers swoon. Dove Dark chocolate is smooth, rich, and delicious; reviewers loved the fact that this chocolate wasn’t bitter, like some other dark chocolates. Several reviewers commented that Dove Dark Chocolate changed their minds about dark chocolate altogether. If you’re looking for a good chocolate to melt down to dip strawberries in, look no further. One reviewer said melted Dove Dark Chocolate made the most perfect simple chocolate fondue.
“I absolutely love these little dark chocolates. They are so delicious and smooth, and I typically have one after dinner just for something a little sweet. But since it’s dark chocolate, I don’t feel guilty!” —labein, Reviewer since 2009
“The price point may be slightly higher than other chocolates in the store- but well worth every penny! You know you are going to get a quality product every time!” — Killians1111, Reviewer since 2010
Not a Chocolate fan?
Not everyone loves chocolate, and not everybody eats it. If your loved one has a specific allergy to chocolate, Viewpoints reviewers highly recommend Smarties.
Viewpoints Score: 89/100
Est. Price: $6.37 for a one pound bag
Smarties are the perfect choice for loved ones who don’t eat chocolate. If your special someone can’t eat gluten, Smarties are a treat they can enjoy without worries. Smarties are an inexpensive treat that can be enjoyed by all ages. One mom commented that even when Smarties got lost under a car seat, they never melted into clothes or upholstery. The tangy, sour taste made these candies one of reviewer’s favorites.
“These tasty gems are sour as well as sweet in just the right balance to satisfy a sweet craving with a zing. And the variety of flavors is enough to please a whole family.” —MoiraWhitlock, Reviewer since 2013
