When it comes to sharing treats as a family, chocolate is hard to beat. Sales of chocolate are "brisk" from the winter holidays through Valentine's Day and Easter because of how deeply chocolate has become ingrained in these celebrations over the past century.

Laiskonis argues that high-quality chocolate is not just a holiday indulgence but rather a year-round treat on par with artisanal cheese and fine wine. For this reason, chocolate is always an appropriate reward for yourself or as a present, regardless of the season in which you read this.

With this in mind, we've compiled a list of some of the best chocolates we've covered in the past and that Select readers have shown an interest in (including some highly regarded classics and more guilty-pleasure-type favorites).
