Taster’s Cherce


The Wife is a cheap date in some respects. For Valentine’s Day all she wants is a small box of Russell Stover chocolates. Last year I couldn’t find any so I bought her a box of chocolates from Jacques Torres. She appreciated the gesture, of course, but not the chocolate. Russell Stover it is–but not Whittman’s, she says. “I won’t eat that crap.”

Over at Serious Eats, here’s a taste test: Russell Stover vs. Whittman’s.

My wife prefers the Godiva milk chocolate truffles (not so much the assortments), so that's what I get her.
My brother-in-law visits Switzerland several times a year and occasionally hooks us up with Sprungli chocolates, which are the best I've had.
