Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and although the FI and I aren't prone to massive celebrations on this day, I just recently discovered this adorable gourmet & artisan chocolates called John & Kira's. They have the most precious chocolates in the shape of bees and ladybugs.

Pretty cute, no? The bee chocolates are filled with caramel and the lady/love bugs are filled with a dark chocolate ganache, um drool. I've decided for Valentine's Day to get FI a box of chocolates (but let's face it its as much for me as it is for him!). I bought the "Bee Hive Tower", which includes the yummy caramel-filled bees, as well as a 15 piece set of their every flavor box. What's additionally lovely about snacking on these delectable treats, is that the only thing you have to feel guilty about is the calories! Most of their flavor chocolates come from some sort of socially responsible background. The mint for the mint chocolate is grown by elementary and highschool age kids in Philadelphia as part of a nutrition program, the Strawberries & Raspberries are from a small family-owned farm, and their chocolate with coffee beans is bought through a fair trade program.

Not only do they have adorable, tasty and socially responsible chocolates, but they also sell them as favors! You can order favors in 2 or 4 piece sets, that are individually wrapped and tied with a bow (how cute!). I think they're adorable, but a bit out of our price range for favors, but still, it never hurts to look.
