National Chocolate Day 2018 is happening today, ahead of National Candy Day on October 31 (otherwise known as Halloween.) Here’s a roundup of places where you can get chocolate treats at a bargain for this chocolate-coated occasion.
1. John & Kira’s
John & Kira’s hand-painted chocolate bees and ladybugs look more like art, and the treats are almost too pretty to eat. However you must, and they are offering special pricing on select items throughout midnight tonight on their online store in honor of National Chocolate Day 2018.
2. Vosges Haut-Chocolat
From chocolate sugar skulls to gorgeous and exotic truffles, chocolatier Vosges puts a superior spin on chocolate. For National Chocolate Day, the fashionista chocolate store is offering 20 percent off through Monday when you use the code “CHOCDAY” when ordering online.
E is for #Exotic. For us exotic is classic. Our signature #truffle collection and best seller. Spices, nut, root & herbs are sourced from Katrina's travels around the world and combined with proprietary, premium white, milk and dark #chocolate. https://t.co/395UWneBt7 #GivePurple pic.twitter.com/KabtmcUxd8— Vosges Haut-Chocolat (@Vosges) January 29, 2018

Shari’s Berries also has fancy chocolate dipped mini-cheesecakes, cake pops and more.
To celebrate National Chocolate Day 2018, Godiva is offering two free chocolates from the company’s new G Cube Collection when you order more than $25 from their online store.

Vat 19’s chocolate offering made the list, not so much because their “World’s Hottest Chocolate Bar” is discounted, but because they offer reasonably priced “melt insurance” for their unbelievable spicy sweet. Besides chocolate and other ingredients, the scorcher contains 9 million SHU chili extract. On their website Q&A, one of the queries was if the insanely hot bar is sweet: To which Vat19 hilariously answered,
Technically, yes. However, you’ll soon find that the spice in the World’s Hottest Chocolate Bar thoroughly dominates all other flavors.
