Chocolate Thong at Leibman's

When it's time to slip into something more edible this Valentine's Day, you'll want to don the latest in tasty underwear -- a chocolate thong, or a "male pouch" made out of candy beads, depending on whether you shop in the his or hers department. We found both at Leibman's on Memorial near Kirkwood, which has a particularly imaginative array of Valentine's Day gifts.

The specialty food store and deli has a huge chocolate case that is always stocked with truffles and exotic chocolates. There are all sorts of conventional chocolate assortments in various size boxes including treats from famous makers like Godiva. Leibman's also makes its own wacky creations, like chocolate-dipped brownie lollipops.

Check out the Valentine's Day gift baskets. There are several that include bottles of champagne and other fine wines. Or maybe your significant other would prefer a gift basket with a six-pack assortment of fancy beers as its centerpiece?
