Our Favorite Chocolate-Covered Treats, Ranked


February 25 is National Chocolate Covered Nut Day! 

In honor of the day...we're celebrating all things chocolate-covered. 

Who doesn't love the decadent combination of chocolate and just about anything else? From fruits to nuts, and even some more unexpected treats, the world of chocolate-covered foods offers an unmatched combo of flavor and texture. But not all chocolate-covered creations are created equal!

Here's our definitive ranking of the best chocolate-covered treats!

10. Chocolate Covered Bananas

If you like bananas, this is the perfect treat for you! Some might say that the flavors don't match – and they're definitely not our all-time favorite chocolate-covered treat. But we think they still deserve a spot on this list. 

9. Chocolate Covered Peanuts

It's a classic combination that never fails to satisfy! The mixture of salty and sweet, plus the crunch of the peanuts and the snap of the chocolate...perfection! If you like peanuts, that is.

8. Chocolate Covered Raisins

The timeless classic: chocolate-covered raisins. They offer perfect balance of chewy sweetness and rich chocolate goodness. It's a nostalgic treat...but maybe a controversial one! Raisins are one of those foods that you either love or hate.

7. Chocolate Covered Strawberries

You can't go wrong with chocolate-covered strawberries! Fresh, juicy berries dipped in silky chocolate...it feels luxurious and romantic! Strawberry and chocolate is one of the best combos out there. We think they should be reserved for special occasions, though...so they don't get the top spot on this list. 

6. Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

For the coffee aficionados, chocolate-covered espresso beans are the perfect treat. The bold flavor of espresso is perfectly complemented by the rich, bittersweet chocolate coating, creating a treat that's both indulgent and invigorating.

You can't not like chocolate-covered pretzels. It's the perfect level of salty and sweet – and you can often find a variety of fun flavors to choose from. Sometimes these just hit the spot like nothing else!

4. Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough

The only way to make cookie dough better... cover it in chocolate! You pretty much can't go wrong with this one. Balls of decadent cookie dough dipped in rich, smooth chocolate – a match made in heaven. The only downside to these? You might not be able to stop eating them...

3. Chocolate Orange Slices

This is a unique one – that we love at Life is Sweet! Candied orange slices are dipped in deliciously rich chocolate, creating the perfect balance of citrus and chocolate flavors. This one earns a spot in the top 3!

2. Chocolate Covered Bacon

It sounds weird – but just trust us on this one. Sweet chocolate meets salty, savory, crispy bacon. It's one of those things that sounds like it should be horrible, but totally isn't. We'd like to thank whoever invented it...

1. Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears

Last but not least...chocolate-covered gummy bears. These are a customer favorite at Life is Sweet – so we think they deserve the #1 spot. It's a textural experience like no other: the decadent snap of chocolate gives way to the chewy, fruity gummy bear center. You just have to try them to see what we mean!
