Valentine's Day chocolate taste test
Stowaway SweetsBest of the tasting: Too good to keep our hands off
A simple brown box is wrapped in red paper and holds about 28 chocolates, all garnished with a hint of their contents: pecans, ginger, almonds (about $25 a pound). Inviting presentation, salty square with fudgy center is beautiful, tastes like butter, very creamy, lovely minty square. Detractors: Taste is good, but nothing to write home about, too sugary, indistinct flavors, not creamy.
