CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If you're still looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift, then you know there's not much time left.
And if you're thinking about buying your sweetheart some chocolates, you might be overwhelmed when you take a stroll down the candy aisle. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend $1.8 billion on candy this year. And this week alone, an estimated 58 million pounds of chocolate will be sold.
With so many options, you might be wondering if it's worth it to save or splurge on expensive chocolate. The answer? It depends.
Our company did a blind taste test of four brands, and in one case, the $48 dollar box was the least favorite while the Russell Stover chocolate we picked up at Target came out on top. Ultimately, it's your choice, but there probably isn't a need to spend a lot on chocolate unless your sweetheart has a favorite kind.
If you're thinking about flowers, there are still a few places you can find flowers at the last minute.
