Based on the book

Sweeter Than Chocolate is based on a book by contemporary romance author Lizzie Shane.

The story centers on Lucy Sweet (played by Mumford), who runs a chocolate shop that goes viral when couples claim they fell in love immediately after eating one of her Valentine’s Day confections. Skeptical TV reporter Dean Chase (played by Jeannotte), becomes determined to debunk the rumor and approaches Sweet telling her he wants to do a story on her shop.

She reluctantly agrees, and the two begin to interview couples that fell in love after eating her chocolate. It soon becomes clear that Sweet and Chase have different ideas about romance. Both have been burned in the past. However, Sweet still believes in true love while Chase has sworn it off entirely.

Chase’s editor becomes intrigued by the story and orders Chase to eat one of the chocolates during a live feed from the store on Valentine’s Day. Meanwhile, one of the first couples Sweet brought together with her chocolate has a nasty breakup. Right when Sweet starts to doubt her ability to bring couples together, Chase convinces her that putting more love into the world is a good thing, even if there might be some heartaches along the way.
