The Best Valentine’s Day Candy: Chocolate, Champagne Gummies, Baked Goods And More

Forbes Magazine featuring McCrea's Candies Valentine's Day Caramel gift box

Valentine’s candy is always a win, but if you really want to impress your loved ones with sweets this year, skip the mass-produced Valentine’s Day chocolates and upgrade your picks. Think confections from a French maison that’s been around since 1827, exotic chocolate truffles made with some of the best ingredients from around the world, or an assortment of delectable artisanal baked goods from an award-winning small business.

Caramels Done Right

This Caramel Tasting Set from McCrea’s Candies is the closest you can get to homemade caramel without having to actually make it yourself. With flavors like Ginger Fusion, Single Malt Scotch, Deep Chocolate, and Tapped Maple, McCrea’s Candies puts an upscale spin on the classic candy. And they’re made with locally-sourced butter, milk, and cream. Can’t beat that.
