Sure, Halloween is this Saturday giving you ample opportunity to get your chocolate fix on, but why not right now?

Today is as good a day as any to celebrate the deliciousness of chocolate because it's officially National Chocolate Day.

That's right. Three days before Halloween we celebrate all things chocolate.

So what if you wanted to pick up some to go chocolate for you to celebrate at home or while at work today?

I consulted Yelp, typed in "chocolate" in the search bar, and found five bakeries and businesses that have the best "chocolate things" on the menu.

Chocolat by Daniel, Doughboys Donuts, Banana Cherry Bakery, and The Little Chocolatier all made the top 5, but CACAOCUVÉE took the top spot.

CACAOCUVÉE says they use "only the highest quality ingredients in our small-batch, artisan chocolates, and gourmet confections. Everything we make is made by hand in our gluten-free facility."

Amazing chocolates from my hometown that I couldn't even resist before I snapped a picture! The truffles are smooth and flavorful, with each one presented beautifully different to distinguish each flavor.

Their DARK SECRET chocolate and Chocolate Galapagos made Oprah's Favorite Things list, so CACAOCUVÉE has that going for them too.

The selection sounds incredible but it looks like you better bring your wallet. Two pieces of Milk Chocolate Galapagos will set you back $20. Yikes! I guess it's a small price to pay for the "best chocolate" in Rockford.

CACAOCUVÉE is located at 613 Chestnut Street in Rockford.
