Recent corn riots have sucked the romance out of popcorn-and-movie nights, which are now tinged with a soupy geopolitical aura. Today’s Groupon sidesteps global kernel frictions with nearly a pound of chocolate truffles from Seattle Chocolates and a two-disc DVD of award-winning romantic short films from Official Best of Fest for $33. This Valentine’s Day, bypass the snooty restaurants that boldly say, “That’s not a credit card, that’s a spoon,” and celebrate the cherubim love day at home with treats and films.
A sweet tooth is frequently pegged as a mere candy-loving calcium mound, and people never think to mention how much sweet teeth love movies. Stock your goodie bowl with a 16 oz. bag of assorted milk and dark chocolate truffles from Seattle Chocolates. Once your sweet belly is sated and your DVD fingers are licked clean, don your favorite blanket and cuddle up to the artistic renderings of love presented on your double-disc set. A plethora of short international productions, such as Guido Thys’ Tanghi Argentini and Michael Lucas’s Turn, give amorous viewers a chance to pause, chat, and snuggle between each brief film.
Your DVD set offers countless representations of love that you wouldn’t normally see in theaters. These humble, treat-bearing movies will play polite A chords on your heartstrings. Go the extra mile this Valentine’s Day and prove your beloved partner is just as important to you as chocolate and digital media.
Chocolates and Offical Best of Fest DVDs must be picked up in person from Seattle Chocolates.
Though there aren't any online reviews for the Official Best of Fest film compilations, there are plenty for Seattle Chocolates. 805 Living magazine, Seattle Metropolitan, MSN.com, and The Chocolate Cult are just a few of the publications and websites to feature the chocolate company:
- So Seattle Chocolates aren’t merely sweet treats—these are bona fide gorgeous gifts, from the stylish neon packaging to the all- natural premium confections within. – Maryann Hammers, Living
- …there is no waxy texture or taste, a common problem with many mainstream candies you can buy today. These are more expensive than what you can grab in the checkout aisle in the grocery store, but even one piece can satisfy your craving for some time if you eat it purposely and slowly so as to get the full range of sensation. – The Chocolate Cult
- The chocolate is very rich and indulgent, as chocolate should be. – Aileen O., Judy's Book
