OK, confession time: did you forget your anniversary? Show up empty-handed to a birthday party? Hey, nobody’s perfect… but if you showed up empty handed on the big day and your better half was a good sport about it, that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook! In fact, it seems to me to be all the more reason to show your someone special that you appreciate them.

So, I’ll make this very simple. Here’s how true Candy Addicts can score big – even if it’s a few days late. Go to the Chocolate Covered Company’s website. Click on the Chocolate Covered Berries (or any of the other tempting categories that strike your fancy). Order. Bask in the adoration that’s sure to follow when your Beloved opens that box of luscious little gems.

Seems like everybody’s dipping stuff in chocolate these days, but Candy Addicts know that there’s a real skill involved in making the perfect chocolate-covered strawberry. I cannot stress this enough: the Chocolate Covered Company has got the skills to pay the bills. They use an ultra-creamy, velvety-smooth chocolate. You get to choose milk, dark, white, or any combination of the three. More importantly, the chocolate is slightly soft and fudgy, so it doesn’t snap and crumble when you bite into the berry. Nobody wants to have to pick up the shards of chocolate midway through enjoying a decadent treat, right?

The real stars of this show, however, are the gorgeous, juicy, perfectly ripe strawberries. I’ve had the good fortune to enjoy the Chocolate Covered Company’s strawberries twice, and both times I found myself marveling at their quality. No exaggeration – these are the best strawberries I have ever had (chocolate-smothered or otherwise). When I opened the box they were shipped in (perfectly wrapped and cold-insulated), that unmistakable strawberry fragrance was overwhelming. Even the stems and leaves were pristine, and assure us Candy Addicts that these are the best money can buy. And… they were HUGE. Oh, and did I mention that they look beautiful?

I just had to bestow upon these our highest honor, the Awesomely Addictive Candy Award. When I first opened my shipment, I thought “A dozen strawberries? How can I possibly eat all these?” Then I tasted one, and thought, “I need to hide these and finish every single one myself!” Beware being overly greedy, Candy Addicts, for these don’t keep longer than a couple of days. But that will hardly be a problem.

So, if you’re in a spot of trouble for skipping on a present for a special occasion, we won’t judge – but the clock’s ticking, and time is running out to redeem yourself. Send your significant other something Chocolate Covered and fabulous – preferably with a sweet note of apology. While you’re at it, spare yourself some trouble: pre-order another shipment for your Beloved’s birthday. Awesomely Addictive Candy Award

    I love chocolate-covered strawberries! I tried making them once and they came out terribly (I thought it’d be easy, but it wasn’t), so I’m glad to learn about a place to buy them. Thanks for the great suggestion. I also found out about another yummy chocolate-covered snack recently, chocolate-covered pumpkin seeds! (Another blog, TheHealthySnacksBlog, just wrote about them); I’ll have to try those, too.

    YUM! I just went to a Chocolate Fondue party last weekend and someone brought the most amazing strawberries to dip into the dark, rich Guittard chocolate. I’d never had them that good. I’m thinkin’ I’ll have to try these, though! I mean, hey, the party strawberries were pretty incredible, as was the chocolate, and dipping, eating and all that was fun and delicious, but these not only LOOK gorgeous, but sound perfectly decadent and indulgent. That’s great in my book!

    I only WISH someone messed up a date or was otherwise in deep ca-ca with me so I could score some of these! Shoot, I have responsible, attentive, date-aware people in my life.

    YEOW! I love chocolate strawberries more than anything, so went to the website excitedly. And it is thirty dollars for six strawberries, five dollars apiece! And that is without shipping costs…
