Have you made your Valentine’s Day plans yet? Depending on when you’re reading this, don’t panic. It’s not too late!
Consult the checklist: you’ve got your nice shirt picked out (and cleaned—double-check that), made a dinner reservation, and cleaned your car. Now all you need are the gifts! No matter how long you’ve been with your partner, this last piece can always be tricky. You want to get something to show you care and pay attention, but you also don’t want to make the wrong move and get them something they won’t like.
There’s a reason that chocolates and flowers are so popular; people do like them. No matter what your loved one’s tastes may be, they’re sure to love candy of some kind. Stick with tradition this year, and you’re sure to make the mark! Here are our top picks for chocolate shops near Brockton. They’re all sure to be a hit!
For something truly decadent that your partner deserves to indulge in, we recommend a tray of Hilliards Chocolates. This family-owned confectioner is now in its fourth generation serving the greater Brockton area. It’s been a favorite of chocolate shops near Brockton ever since they opened their original candy store in Quincy in 1924. Now, there are three convenient locations in Mansfield, Norwell, and North Easton, so it’s a great choice no matter where around Brockton you may live! If you want something a little more out-of-the-box than a traditional chocolate tray, their selection of toffee crunches and brittles are truly to die for.
Skinners Sugar House
This East Bridgewater candy shop has been bringing smiles to the faces of Brockton residents since 1916—over 100 years ago!

And be sure to ask about their seasonal offerings; they have many lovely Valentine’s Day boxes that are sure to wow your loved one!
Nothing says “I love you” like a box of decadent gourmet truffles. Furlong’s Candies is yet another Massachusetts institution, and has been one of the best chocolate shops near Brockton for over 80 years. If you have something even more to celebrate this year, be sure to check out their adorable baby carriage pops made of delicious hand-crafted chocolate.
