This deal was my husband’s idea. We are dark-chocolate lovers, and he recently suggested heading to For the Love of Chocolate in Carytown to get our fix… then added, “Maybe we should wait until after Valentine’s Day.” Smart man.
Since he had Presidents Day off from work, we braved the slush to visit Cary Court and redeem our Smoothie King Living Social gift card before checking out FTLOC. This was the sign that greeted us just inside the door:
We were greeted by a surprisingly large selection of red heart-themed chocolate, all a whopping 90% off. So for under eleven bucks we acquired these bad boys:
1 canister of Dove dark chocolates, 2 bags of raspberry filled dark chocolate, 4 dark chocolate hearts, 2 oversized lollipops, and the piece de resistance, a tin filled with 36 Godiva chocolates and truffles.
Original price on the Godiva tin was $65! (!) (heart attack). I love chocolate as much as the next girl, but really hoping no one paid that much for a Valentine’s Day present.
Wallet win, waistline lose (or gain..)
But dark chocolate is the healthy kind, right?
I was sorely tempted to buy the whole inventory to save for “presents” but I’m valiantly trying to reform my hoarding ways and, let’s be honest, none of that chocolate would have ever made it out of the house.
