“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.”
