Chocolate is commonly said to be one of a girl’s best friends, so it makes sense that a man might want to buy some for his new date. Here, we take a look at some ways to ensure you pick some good chocolate when going on a first date with a new lady.
- There are many indications to look for which will help you figure out if you are looking at high-quality chocolate or something more inferior. Expect to pay more for good chocolate, but there are also some cheaper chocolates which are still high quality. You should also check the ingredients – any which have sugar as the first ingredient are not high quality. The first ingredients should be things like cocoa butter and cocoa solids. A good quality chocolate shouldn’t have a very long list of ingredients you don’t understand either.
- If buying for a gift, you might also like to choose something which is nicely packaged. A box of chocolates is always a nice gift to give a woman on a date. You could also choose individual chocolates from a counter and get them wrapped in a fancy bag with some pretty ribbon. In fact, visiting a chocolatier to buy a chocolate gift is how I found my perfect partner.
- If possible, you can handle the chocolate to better judge its quality. It should have a strong aroma, and it should have been wrapped up in foil to prevent it from picking up the smell of anything else it has been stored near. Chocolate should have a smooth and glossy surface without blemishes, which indicate it is poor quality or not very fresh. Good quality dark chocolate should snap cleanly in two, with a lovely sound. If it crumbles, this indicates a poor-quality product.
