Godiva is a big name in the fine chocolate market. Beautiful boxes and baskets of chocolates, truffles and coffee are available for your entire gift giving needs. Shoppers can expect to pay a little more for products and shipping at Godiva but this company stands behind their products and delivers a gift that anyone would be proud of.

Russell Stover


You've seen their chocolates at your local big-box retailer, but did you know you can build your own customized box of chocolates via the Russell Stover website? Although their selection is not gourmet or exotic, shoppers looking for a traditional variety of chocolates will find what they want with Russell Stover, which includes the well-known Whitman brand as well.

Simply Chocolate


Simply Chocolate brings a great reputation with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a wide variety of chocolate options ranging from traditional assortments to chocolate-dipped Oreos. You may want to consider the Celebrations Passport membership to save on shipping costs. However you'll definitely want to do some price comparison, as Simply Chocolates is often priced higher than the competition. Read More... Visit

Ethel M


The "M" in Ethel M stands for Mars - yes, the company that brings you M&Ms and other well-known chocolate favorites. The Ethel M brand is very different from those: made in small batches, packed by hand, and absolutely fresh. Prices are on the spendy side, and you'll pay $10 for shipping unless your order is at least $100. Read More... Visit

Vosges Chocolate


If you are looking for gourmet chocolate with a twist, Vosges Chocolate might be the website for you. A Cordon Bleu trained chef steps out of the box to use unique ingredients. At Vosges you can anticipate bacon, cheese, peppers, and other non traditional ingredients in the chocolate selection. The website is fun but the search functionality is a bit limited.

Nirvana Chocolate


Made in a small town in Belgium, Nirvana Chocolates offers beautiful quality products for your chocolate lover. Choose from simple to complex milk, dark, or white chocolate with mixed flavors such as amaretto, mocha, champagne, and more. You'll find a smaller selection at Nirvana but you'll enjoy selecting what mix of chocolate is placed in the box.

Ghirardelli chocolate squares are well-known for being delicious and decadent, and the company's website carries a broader variety than you'll probably find at your local store. But, shipping costs are high, and a lack of a return policy or satisfaction guarantee may have you looking elsewhere for your chocolates. Read More... Visit

Chocolate has a good variety of chocolates, all created by small sweet shops throughout the US and Canada. Shipping costs are high, and some customers report problems with billing and delivery. You may have a hard time reaching Chocolate's customer service department as well, since email is the only contact method they provide.

Hotel Chocolat


Hotel Chocolat attempts to provide exclusive chocolate products, but fails. With a noticeable lack of selection it doesn't take long to get through their few products to understand the limitations of this website. Of the few items they offer, several are sold out or unavailable for purchase. Until Hotel Chocolat increases selection and quantity we recommend you shop a higher ranked provider for your chocolate needs.
