Better (Choco)Late Than Never (Sponsored)

Get your post-Valentine's fix at the Hawaii Chocolate Festival

It happened again. Your significant other waited until the last minute to get you a Valentine’s Day gift.

So while your Instagram feed was getting flooded with pics of elaborate floral arrangements, chocolate-covered strawberries and heart-shaped cookies, you were being presented with a Hershey’s bar and a crinkled card that must have been the last one left at Longs. #valentinesfail

Don’t be bitter. Allow that knucklehead to regain your sweet demeanor with tickets to the Hawaii Chocolate Festival. You'll get to taste silky samples from local chocolatiers such as Madre Chocolate, Aloha Chocolate Company and Padovani Chocolates, drown your sorrows in Naughty Cow Chocolate Liquor and 360 Double Chocolate Vodka, and, by the time you stumble across decadent confections such as Hokulani Bakery cupcakes and Hawaiian Nougats, you'll be ready to fall in love again. Tell that putz to buy the tickets now to save $5 off of each one—and guarantee no more nights spent on the couch.

The Hawaii Chocolate Festival is Saturday, February 22 from noon to 5 p.m. at Dole Cannery Shops. Tickets are $20 in advance online and $25 at the door. Find more information here.
