What are the best chocolate covered strawberries? To find out, we ordered in several different brands and started tasting. Which were best? The most plump and juicy? Here are the ones we recommend.

Finding the Best Chocolate Covered Strawberries

One of our fondest memories of living in Austin, TX, where we started our writing career, was chocolate-covered strawberries. These berries would appear from a local chocolate store chain twice a year and were so popular, lines would appear outside for folks who waited for these delicate creations.

Given their limited availability, we were surprised and delighted to find you can order chocolate-covered strawberries online just about year-round these days.

To find the best bets, we ordered in several brands and did a blind taste test. (Yes a tough job, but somebody had to do it).

Along the way, we discovered a few tips and words of advice for chocolate-covered strawberry shoppers:

• Eat quickly! The makers of these chocolate-covered strawberries generally recommend eating these strawberries relatively quickly. They simply won’t last more than a few days, as you might imagine.

• Consider the timing. If you are buying these strawberries as a gift, consider the timing—since they must be consumed quickly, you need to time your delivery close to the gift date!

• Delivery may not be available on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. To keep these delicate creations safe, you may only be able to take delivery on certain days of the week. Plan accordingly!

After trying out several brands, here are the ones we liked the best!

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
