I personally feel that the thought that is put into the gift is more important than the price when receiving or giving gifts. I think if I had to choose one type of chocolate that is my favorite it would be Dove truffles.
I think the thought is what matters the most when it comes to giving or receiving gifts and my favorite type of chocolate is Ghirardelli.
I like a nice box of mixed chocolates with nuts and other fillings. Milk, dark, a really good mix. The price doesn't really matter, but I want something that is useful and appreciated.
Price isn't important at all. It's all about the thought in the gift even if it's hand made I will cherish it because it comes from the person I love. I love, love, love dark chocolate. That stuff is soo good. Anything that has dark chocolate, nuts, or fruit is just yummy.
The thought and effort placed in a gift is so much more than an expensive give
I give from my heart and love to receive gifts
Sometimes it's the little gifts that I appreciate more since they are the ones that someone has to know you well to pick out. I do enjoy all types of chocolate. Godiva is amazing but also the Hershey's pot of Gold chocolates are a favorite too.
i love dark chocolate covered almonds or cashews. godiva makes a weet gift asnd it would be a sweet gift from a sweet author. keep writing your enjoyable books.
Chocolate, I love chocolate.. give me chocolate... dark chocolate is my favorite... and my sweetie always remembers... bless him... and then I share...
Price of a gift. Gifts to me are emotionala warm and fuzzy tingly butterfly feeling . Last time I checked that doesn't come with a price tag. i will admit you usually need cash to buy gifts but one doesn't equal the other. The sentiment is much more important. At Christmas I recieved several expensive gifts. I thanked him for them I then opened a bead which had the theame of out wedding 10 years ago on it. The bead wasn't costly in a cash sence but priceless to me, tears flowed. Happy tears. I am hoping he goes to a site like greater goods animal rescue site and gets me a doggie mesuring spoons. It benfits them and I love dogs. Win win
Price isn't important at all...it's the thought that counts.
I prefer the dark chocolate but I do eat milk chocolate occasionally. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Must be dark chocolate!! You forgot to mention Dove chocolate which is the best of the inexpensive chocolate (IMHO).
good old russell stover works for me. at least hubby was thinking about the whole valentines day thing.
The price is not what is important. The thought put into
Im a pretty simple gal. Just give me a extra hug and
It's definitely not the cost, but one's taste that matters. I'd rather get a $3 package of Dove Promises than $50 2 lb. of Fannie May (a local chocolate company) assorted chocolates, 95% of which I won't eat. When someone gifts me candy, it shows me whether they've been paying attention or not and that's what's important to me.
My personal fav is dark chocolate, and I love Godiva as well as a Belgian Chocolate that I get at The Nutty Chocolatier, and I also like any kind of chocolate I get from Laura Secord's a fine chocolate store her in Canada. But I rarely turn down any kind of chocolate. What girl does.
I like most chocolates, too, but Sees is my all time favorite. And that is only for special, special occasions.
I love any form of chocolate-it's an obsession & passion!!
Nope, price isn't important. I have to agree with earlier comments that Dove Milk Chocolate is wonderful. Thanks, Carly, for stopping by today. On my way to Plot Monkeys next!
oh, oh, oh.. you forgot Easter and Christmas chocolates, and those cute little groundhog shaped almonds covered in choc... oh wait, that was a dream I had a few weeks ago.
Price makes no difference in the gift of chocolate. Whether it's Hershey's, Godiva or the milk chocolate smeared kisses from my kids (those are the best), any chocolate is good chocolate. And not just on Valentine's Day - any day! Have to admit though, tomorrow will be the fun day because then I can buy marked down chocolate...which means twice as much for the same price no matter what that price is!
It's not what you spend it's the thought that counts or so they always say. But, if you like chocolate, good chocolate is the only thing worth buying. Coming from England I've been so spoilt with quality chocolate for most of my younger life without realizing that all chocolate is not created equal. A small quality chocolate bar far exceeds a bag full of cheap stuff!
at the moment, I am intensely addicted to Hersheys Drops. Oh my goodness. Who thought these things up? Just that little bit and you think,"Oh, how much damage can it do?" You poor a few into a little pile by your computer. Suck on it as it melts slowly down your throat. Then, BOOM!, somehow they have all disappeared!! How does that happen???
FOR ME, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VALUE OF A GIFT, NOT THE PRICE..TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE PUT THOUGHT INTO GIVING YOU JUST THE RIGHT THING! I ADORE MILK CHOCOLATE GODIVA.
Today my Zonta club is having their annual chocolate auction, and I've got a heart-shaped box of See's brought back from a recent trip West to contribute - but local favorites Harbor Sweets (Salem, MA) and Lindt (Stratham, NH) are always welcome in my house! I also make a piece of knitting in 'chocolate' colors to contribute for those non-chocolate lovers! And I buy my own Valentine's candy - half-price the next day....
The only chocolate I don't like is white chocolate. I adore dark chocolate. Godiva is one of my favorites but I have had Belgian chocolate brought over from Europe that blew me away. I like chocolate with coconut the most. My favorite chocolate treat is a Toffefay: chocolate, caramel and a hazelnut.
The cost of the gift isn't important to me. Just someone taking the time to think about me means a lot.
My oldest daughter's first experience with the Easter Bunny was said with such
Price has no bearing. What's important is that it's dark chocolate with tons of nuts.
Price doesn't seem to matter to me. I like the Dove
Price doesn't matter, it is the thought and love that goes into the giving. Some of the best presents have been those that didn't cost much but were given in love and joy. As to chocolate, my all time favorite are Ethly M's chocolate liquors. They are to die for and I always get a couple of boxes to take home when I'm in Las Vegas. My everyday, always have on hand chocolate is Lindor dark chocolate truffles.
Dove Truffles are the best chocolates for Valentine's Day!
I prefer milk chocolate and whatever type is fine. The thoughtfulness is what I enjoy feeling.
I don't feel that the price of the gift isn't important, as long as it was given from the heart. I think that the recipient will know if the gift was just "thrown together" or an "afterthought," or if it was from the heart. As for chocolate, a good Hershey bar with or without almonds will get me through a pinch, as well as Reese's peanut butter cups. Cadbury bars are great as well. As for Godiva chocolate, I receive that once in a decade, it seems, and it's something I always savor. I love the milk chocolate, and give the dark chocolate pieces to my Husband, so we're able to share. Let's just say the benefit is worth it!! I love most chocolate in general, and do a lot of baking as well, when the cravings kick in. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
Well, price shouldn't matter. I will be happy with a cheap $10 chocolates... no need to spend like $100 on chocolates.... It's the heart and the love that matter...
It's not the cost but the thoughtfulness. Dark chocolate is the best but the white bark with peppermint at Christmas is yummy! And how about dark chocolate covered cherries with clear center. Oh I love, love chocolate :)
The perfect prize for a Valentine's Day contest!!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
the sentiment behind the gesture
Thought is definately the most important!!! I especially love it when someone takes the time to make me something I will love, like the wood snowman that my husband made and my daughter painted for Christmas.
Price doesn't matter, it is given with love is what matters. An expensive gift can indicate love, but so can a thoughtful handmade gift! As for me, I love Turtles!
Its the thought that counts when it comes to a gift, it doesn't have to be pricy. I am a big milk chocolate fan. I was wanting a Hershery bar yesterday, didn't get it but wanted it.
I love Dark Chocolate, but my Husband loves Russell Stover Milk chocolate cover marshmallow hearts. 2 for a $, so I always buy a whole box for him. It's not how much money, it's what you like.
I like dark chocolate but toffee is my favorite.bourduex if it's Sees Candies
I am a milk chocolate person... love it with nuts! Some of my favs are Lindt milk chocolate with hazelnuts, Hershey's with almonds, Dove, etc... If someone takes the time to get you a gift, then the price has no meaning it is the gesture itself that counts!
Oh, it's definitely the thought and not the price that counts! Matching a gift to a person is more important than how much you spend on said gift... :D
It most certainly is not the price that counts. I love chocolate but have long held a weakness for Hershey's Special Dark Chococlate.
I am not impressed by prices - on anything, really. I am impressed by thoughtfulness, though, so any type of chocolate is always appreciated.
The price of the gift is not important at all---just having someone think of you and let you know is what is important. As for favorite chocolate---homemade peanut butter fudge----it's to die for.
It's not how much you spend it's having a valentine to give to. i lost my husband this past year , he would always buy me red & white carnations and i would cook him a steak. now neither will be done, so if you have a spouse Just saying"I Love You' means the world on Valentine's Day!
I always thought it was the thought that counts. Not label it is this gift
I go by the old adage - it's the thought that counts.
It isn't the price of the gift, it is the thought behind it that is important. One of my best gifts ever was a card my son worked on for days for me. It is the love and thoughtfullness that goes into the gift that is important.
It's definitely the thought behind it. My Dad gives each of his daughters a valentine box of chocolates every year that tastes just awful,lol. But we never say anything, because it was bought with love.
My favorite chocolate is simple - Hershey Milk Chocolate. Cost doesn't matter to me, never has. I do like dark chocolate occasionally but milk chocolate wins out most times.
My favorite chocolate is Swiss chocolate..milk chocolate to be exact.
I prefer milk chocolate, but would be thrilled to receive any type from a special person. The important thing is someone remembered me with love.
It's definitely the thought that counts over the price (tho
Russell Stover is my favorite chocolate. And, most certainly it is the thought that counts!!
My favourite chocolate is Dark chocolate--as long as it's totally gluten free.
The thought and effort certainly count for much more than the price with me, for any type of gift/occasion.
My favorite gift was homemade. I love dark chocolate, I'm not fussy about what brand.
How important is the price of the gift when giving or
Happy Valentine's Day. I don't think price is important as long as the person put some thought in getting a specific gift for you. I really like milk chocolate with caramel and every so often I'll indulge in a strawberry cream.
Like practically everyone else here today, I don't think that the price of the gift is as important as the thought put into it.
No doubt about it, it's the thought that counts. I love getting gifts that make you really feel that the person *knows* you, and when giving, well, I always try and find that perfect gift that reflects the person's personality :-)
The price of the gift isn't important, especially when it's handmade or homemade. You know it's given from the heart to you, and the thought and memories are treasured, which makes it so special. My favorite kinds of chocolates are anything with caramel or nuts. I've always enjoyed Fannie May pixies (turtles) and haystacks and Swiss Colony truffles. I've never had Godiva chocolates--so I'm clueless as to what I have been missing! Carly, I just got your book, "Serendipity" but I haven't read it yet, and have to get the next two after that. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY !
price doesn't matter and any kind of chocolates!! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!!
Happy Valentine's Day!
The price doesn't matter near as much as the thought. And my very favorite chocolate is Godiva Truffles - the ones withthe cocoa all over them! Yummy!
Happy Valentin's Day
Happy Valentine's Day Carly,
I like any candy with nuts. But all I need for Valentine's day are hugs and kisses. Happy Valentine's day.
I love chocolate any time. It's the best gift.
I enjoy most any kind of chocolate. Especially dark
I think its the thought that counts but I love hershey candy they used to have hershey kisses with cherry in them but I havne't seen them in awhile so not sure if they still make them. I also like dark chocolate cherries from Fannie May...Hope everyone has a great Valentines Day!!
I'm a total sap. I don't care about the price tag, just the thought behind it. The fact that someone would take the time and effort to give me something is wonderful. As for chocolate, I love white chocolate. I know it's not "real" chocolate, but I can never fight those cravings.
I love "thoughtful" gifts more than store bought--the handwritten note from my 7-year-old, the thank you kiss from my son, the love note on the table from my husband, etc. As for chocolate--Pretzel M&M's!!
Considering that I gave my husband an exercise headband for Valentine's Day this year, I have to say that I think it's the thought that counts not the price!
A gift from the heart has no price tag. I love M&M's to Godiva chocolates if given by someone who loves me I don't
Chocolate say I love you and if you love me you will share.
The thought behind the gift is the most important factor. The dollar value for some of my treasures is low, but the love and thought behind the giving makes them priceless.
Price isn't important. There is nothing like a surprise gift of chocolate....perks
Mmmmm..CHOCOLATE! I love a melt in my mouth chocolate (my mouth waters thinking about it), milk chocolate that has that creamy taste. That's what does it best for me but,not going to say I would turn down any other kind though. My husband bought me cashews for Valentines day a few years back thinking he would get me something different that I really love. He knew it didn't matter what it was really because I always knew he gave it with love. The next day he came home with a small bag (like a coffee bag) and gave it to me. I opened it and it was full of CHOCOLATE covered cashews...OMG**can you say YUMMMMMY, I suuurrre did ;) and what a surprise! Happy Valentines Day to ALL.
Chocolate is my middle name...or it should be! I don't smoke or drink but chocolate is my addiction. My downfall is a hand-dipped Drew's milk chocolate covered carmel.Drews Chocolates is in Dexter Iowa.
price not inporten it's the thinking behind a gift and getting
Yum, Godiva chocolates, what could be better? Add me in.....
It is the thought that counts of course.
Price is not important, still like a dinner out and exchanging Valentines...Love Fanny May chocolate turtles...
I'm easy. I'm a dark chocolate girl. I love Hersheys Special Dark. A mini straight out of the freezer if fab! Or some semisweet morsels. A palm full are a perfect pick-me-up. I LOVE brownies, dark or otherwise and often "tweek" them with various other candy and sweet surprises.
Prices of the gift or gifts do not matter since it's the intentions and effort behind the giver that counts. My brother once gave his wife a fire extinguisher for her birthday and has never let him forget how impersonal it was. He didn't make that mistake of giving the house a gift, again.
Oh, I forgot this is a two part question. My favorite chocolate is the one in front of me. If it's in the house, it has my name on it. I try to keep dark chocolate around for health reasons.
