Chocolate Sales Online

imageChocolate Obsession is on board with the “candy season” idea. There are some great sales out there (I found some good things at Sav-On yesterday on the sale table, including 10 cents for York Peppermint Patties in the shape of snowflakes and filled raspberry hard candies for 49 cents instead of $2.49).

Lake Champlain is having a pretty amazing sale that’s not just holiday themed stuff, you can get their 5 Star Bars for $14.40 instead of $24.00. I might have to order that up, or drop lots of hints for my upcoming birthday. Hint, hint.

Godiva is also posting their “Chocolate Covered Sale” items at up to 50% off. Not my favorite brand, but I certainly wouldn’t turn up my nose at it.

I also shopped at Cost Plus World Market yesterday and found that all of their holiday candies were 50% off (even the Hanukkah stuff, even though we’re only half-way through). Much of it had been picked over, but they had some nice tins of candy that you can still bring as hostess gifts for New Years or of course just snuggled down with yourself.

Crate and Barrel has some stellar mark downs on their candy as well, you can pick it up in the stores or order online. 18 ounces of Mint Cookie Joys for $4.50? Buy a dozen! I loooooove Mint Cookie Joys.

No sign of sales on Dean & Deluca or Zabars and Williams-Sonoma doesn’t have the treats on their site at the moment. Look sharp, there are some great deals out there. Post if you’ve found something!

  1. Hello everybody,
    Since the topic fits, I wanted to tell you that we just opened a new online candy store,
    http://www.lavishsweets.com
    Who are we? My wife Anna and me, Edward.  Anna was at home with the baby, and decided that she does not have enough challenge.  So, we opened a store.

    We are selling Russian chocolates.  Well, actually, they are made here in US, in New York.  But they are based on authentic Russian and Soviet recipes.  We both are from Russia, so we know.  This way, you get the best of both worlds - freshness of the candy that did not travel half the world, and authentic, somewhat exotic, taste.

    These candies had been distributed through Russian stores here in US for the last 10 years, maybe more.  But that always presented several problems for our American friends:
    * most of the low-paid clerks in Russian stores do not speak English;
    * most candy have funny names like Spartacus of Paradise, which do not immediately indicate what’s inside;
    * selection is not always great, and freshness can be questionable sometimes.

    So, our Web site eliminates all these problems.  The site is English.  There is detailed description for each candy, with ingredients.  For you lovers of chocolate history, there is also a Trivia tab on some of the candy.  There we’ve put whatever historical facts we’ve managed to gather so far for each candy.  This information is constantly expanding, as we dig up more info.

    Also, we have full selection of Russian chocolates – 27 types of products.  So, based on description we provide, you can always find your favorite.

    Finally, we are centrally located in Denver, Colorado.  So, with priority shipping, the chocolates are delivered to any part of the US within couple of days.  The chocolates delivered to us frequently from the factory in refrigerated trucks.  The factory does not keep the stock of chocolates, so all of them are made literally right before shipping.

    Give us a try!  We would be interested to see your reviews of our products.

  2. Dear Chocolate lovers,

    May I introduce to you our new online chocolate store?

    We live in Belgium and my wife and I have started an online shop for our prestigious Belgian “Coeur Touch?” chocolates. Our Premium Quality is fresh made in Belgium and is shipped to the USA using FedEx express service. 

    Our chocolates contain pure cocoa butter (about 10% more expensive that the added vegetable fat you find in standard chocolate) and fresh ingredients. No artificial flavours, fillers, colours or preservatives are ever added.
    We offer premium quality in the great tradition of the Belgian Chocolates.

    Please feel free to visit our website:

    Any comments are very much appreciated.

    Have an excellent day!
