"Honey, I found what I want for Valentine's Day."
This may very well be the most beautiful box of chocolates I have ever seen. They look like they should be under glass or at least in a soap dish. Labeled the G Collection, these gorgeous and presumably delicious candies are the latest creation from Godiva designed by pastry chef Norman Love. Beyond the aesthetic appeal, the flavors sound especially intriguing. Tasmanian Honey, Thai Coconut, Caramel Macchiato, Bananas Foster and Vermont Maple Walnut are just a few. You're not gonna come across these in a Whitman's Sampler, but of course, they're not in the same price range. A 15 piece box from the G collection will cost you (or your valentine) $50, and the 30 piece box is $95. Because no preservatives are used, it is suggested that the chocolates be eaten two to four weeks after purchase, which seems like quite the caloric undertaking before warmer weather/bathing suit shopping hits.
"On second thought, that four piece box of Whitman's will do just fine."
