According to CBC News, Chocolate came to the old world from Mexico too late for Saint Valentine to ever taste the fine aphrodisiac, but the beloved sweet is so powerful that over the years it has been used for currency and even caused a few bloody battles when it was outlawed. Our modern day Valentines feel absolutely cheated if they aren’t honoured with the finest chocolate available on this special day. And Luxury Belgian chocolate company, Galler, is here to help you stay out of the dog house. Previously only available at Harrods, you can now purchase products online and have them delivered straight to your door. With sexy presentations ranging from gift boxes that look like corsets to inseperable hearts flavoured to blend into exquisite pleasure this just might be your ticket to a night of love.
