More Last-Minute Chocolate Stocking Stuffers

Do you still need some chocolaty stocking stuffers for a chocolate-lover your list?  If so, here are three that I tried in the last month and liked:

Long Grove's 99 gram Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, available at Target.  I couldn't resist purchasing this extra-large chocolate peanut butter cup when I saw it at the newly opened Target in Sudbury, Ontario. It is a little on the sweet side, with the peanut butter centre composed mainly of icing sugar and peanut butter, but it is ideal for that sweet-tooth chocolate fanatic who also loves peanut butter. And it is impressive to look at!

Lindt Chocolate Wafer with Hazelnut Filling - this crunchy crepe inside of a milk chocolate and hazelnut bar is so tasty, that even a dark-chocolatarian like myself loved it. This would satisfy any kind of chocolate lover on your holiday gift list. I bought it at Valu-Mart, but I suspect it is available at most grocery stores and pharmacies now.


Aero 70% Dark Chocolate - even an appreciator of fine chocolate may need a quick fix of dark chocolate now and then, which makes Aero's 70% chocolate bar the perfect stocking stuffer if you need to buy dark chocolate NOW! I found the bubbles to be refreshing and the dark chocolate actually tastes good (it is dark chocolate, as opposed to those commercial super-sweet chocolate bars that are only labelled as dark).



Finally, if you really need a good chocolate treat for someone who cares about their health, the environment, or social responsibility, then head over to your local health food store.  Most health food stores have a great selection of 100 gram chocolate bars and sample-sized chocolates that are organic, Fair Trade and all natural.  You can probably fill a stocking with what you find there.  Good brands include:
  • Camino's Organic and Fair Trade Chocolate bars
  • Alter Eco's range of organic chocolate bars
  • Green & Black's
  • Dagoba
  • Pacari's range of raw chocolate bars
  • and so many more....
Have a happy holiday and a fantastic New Year everyone!  May 2014 bring you a lot of amazing chocolate experiences.
