It's a clutch decision. You buy your sweetie the Valentine's Day box. You know the one. Red shiny cardboard, heart-shaped, fancy-looking and boasting an assortment of milk and dark chocolates. One is made by Russell Stover, the other the classic Whitman's Sampler (which, incidentally, are owned by the same company). It sets you back about $7.99 at Walgreen's or your oh-geez-is-it-really-Feb.-14 store of choice.
The box is about is about 9.3 inches wide and 10 inches tall, a good size. But inside the Whitman's box are 11 candies. Inside the Russell Stover? Nine candies.
