Readers feel very strongly about the chocolate they love. Several took us to task for not including their favorite places in a roundup last week. You can find that original list here .

Keep those suggestions coming

Here are the places some readers offered. If you have a better idea, please email us at or comment below.

"Any top 10 Western Pa. chocolate maker list without Rosalind's is an absolute joke. They are, without a doubt, the best chocolate in the state. As far as I'm concerned there are three pre-eminent chocolate makers in Western Pa, Rosalind's, Sarris (which was included in our original list), and Anderson's ... anything else is second fiddle." — Frank Domenic Jr.

Rosalind Candy Castle, New Brighton, Beaver County:

Anderson's Candies, Baden, Beaver County:

"I now purchase all my boxed chocolate from Philadelphia Candies in Hermitage, Pa, they have some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg." — Merrell Reagan

Philadelphia Candies, Mercer County:

"You have made a major blunder with not listing Jameson Candy in New Castle/Neshanock — originally opened by Joe Jameson and now under the watchful eye of Betty Polen, Joe's daughter. The variety is extensive and every item sold is absolutely top shelf." — Michael Campbell

Jameson Candy, Lawrence County:

"You have to add Sib's Sweet Shoppe in Youngwood. Dana and her staff are the best. You have to try a gourmet chocolate apple and fresh dipped strawberries and raspberries." — Larissa Clayton

Sib's Sweet Shoppe, Youngwood:

Other recommendations

Betsy Ann Chocolates, West View:

Colebrook Chocolate Co., Connellsville:

Catoris Candies, New Kensington:


There are plenty of non-chocolate options to celebrate your love tomorrow. There are shows like The Spinners at the Palace Theatre in Greensburg to comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham at PPG Paints Arena; overnight getaways and quick homemade options.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
