A taste of holiday traditions is captured inside this year’s Norman Love Confections Holiday Collection gift boxes. The 2016 limited-edition collection features 10 seasonal flavors including Candy Cane, Cranberry Apple Biscuit, Pumpkin Pie, Mint Patty, Linzer Cookie, Cup O’ Cheer, Mulled Cider, White Christmas, S’mores and Gingersnap. The limited-edition collection is now available online at www.normanloveconfections.com, and shipping begins as early as Nov. 21. The 2016 Holiday Collection debuts in Norman Love Confections’ chocolate salons in Fort Myers, Naples and Estero, Florida on Nov. 21.
Norman Love Confections also offers a selection of holiday-themed gifts, including 25- and 50-piece holiday gift boxes, holiday gift baskets, personalized gifts, a limited-edition 10-piece candy cane-shaped gift box, chocolate peppermint holiday bark, and gourmet holiday desserts (in stores only).
“Often, taste is tied to tradition, so it’s not surprising that our holiday flavors bring up cherished memories of baking gingersnaps with grandma or roasting s’mores around the fire with family,” said Norman Love, founder and owner of Norman Love Confections. “Every year, we create holiday flavors that symbolize the season, with a Norman Love twist.”
