I'm looking for recommendations for really good chocolate that I can buy online. Any suggestions (or sites I should avoid?)

    I don't know if you are looking for chocolate for eating or cooking. One of my favorite gift chocolates is john and kiras (johnandkiras.com).

      Burdick is excellent, the mice & penguins make especially nice gifts/favors...

        azurechocolat.com. They're local and I can go to the store, but have used their online interface, too.

          Good chocolate, good service, good site. Or did you mean chocolate(s), which sounds more like a valentine's day box kinda thing?

            I should have clarified! thanks. I have food blog and I with Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to do some posts about chocolate. (and wine!) I was hoping to get some recommendations from the all-knowing jedi's of Chowhound. And maybe some comments I could use on my blog, too!

            Thanks, everybody.

            See's. Any assortment is delicious, but they have a lovely feature of letting you pack the box with your favorites, choosing from catalog or online (click onto "custom mix").

              I second See's. Their latest catalog causes me lots of problems... I want everything.

                Matisse Chocolatier, located in NJ. Their chocolate-covered graham crackers are killer.
