    Chocolates?

    What is the different between chocolate and chocolates?

    When should I use the plural and singular?

    for example,

    No one gave me chocolate on Valentain's Day
    No one gave me chocolates on Valentain's Day

    Re: Chocolates?

    Chocolate is one of the confusing nouns that can be both countable and uncountable.

    "Chocolates" generally means the individual sweets that come in a box and have a variety of different centres

    "Chocolate" is a bar or a filling as in a chocolate cake.
