FTD is primarily known for flowers and their delivery around the world, but they also offer other gifts, including a decent selection of chocolates they retail. Your Chocolate Priestess received a double value gift certificate from one of her credit cards and used it to buy one such gift from FTD. This was the "Red Roses Tower of Sweets," which is three boxes of four types of chocolate treats plus a photo frame. This arrived exactly as scheduled, but you should know that shipping costs are outrageous from FTD. Instead of being based on weight or cost of the gift, these are just flat fees depending on if you want it delivered during the week or on a weekend. This meant that I spent about 2/3 of the what this tower cost on postage.
I'm just not impressed by this particular gift option from FTD, Sisters & Brothers. For the price the quality is just not good enough. While there were plenty of pretzels, the other chocolates didn't have enough to really be worth their share of the cost. The frame was disappointing, but I do like the reusable and stackable boxes. Add in an incredibly high shipping & handling cost, and I think you can find a better deal out there for your Valentine's Day gifts. Look through our "Saturday Sacraments" and "Special Sacraments" sections to find some of these other options.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
