And every romantic symbol that’s ever managed to reignite humankind’s faith in love always trickles down into more than a few shopping lists. So cut some tension out of your brainstorming this February 14 and heed these words: The fairest gift on this loveliest holiday of them all can be back-to-basics chocolate.
