Pick Up Something Sweet for Your Valentine

CODE CRUSH

Hey friends and foodies,

We cannot believe how quickly this year is already going back…but here we are, stocking up on chocolates and cards for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to buy a uniquely New England gift for the special someone (or everyone!) in your life, we put together a little guide to help you narrow down the perfect gift for everyone.

If you’re planning on ordering some goodies for next week, please note the special shipping requirements section for ship days and delivery times for certain fresh baked and perishable items. Standard shipping not guaranteed to arrive by Valentine’s Day. You can use code CRUSH for 10% off your order this week.

For your co-workers:

Pick up a batch of Harvest Sweets candy to give to your office mates – the chocolate on the outside makes them decadent and sweet and the fruit inside makes us adults feel just a little less guilty about indulging! The Dark Chocolate Raspberry truffles are a fan favorite – and festive!

For your littlest Valentine’s lunch box:

You can pick up a  variety pack that includes Devil Dogs, Ring Dings, Coffee Cakes and Yodels so you can get everyone’s favorite in one pack.

 

For your hunny: 

If your special someone is a true New England fan, skip the box of chocolates and pair the bouquet of flowers with a variety pack of Peggy Lawton cookies or brownies. Grab the biggest pack (which includes Fudge Brownies and the Chunk Chocolate Cookies with the sweet tastes of Peggy’s Choco-Chip, Oatmeal, and Butter Crunch Cookies!) to have your sweets covered well after the last discounted candy has been removed the shelves.

Grenadine Cocktails for Valentine’s Day

NEWSFLASH*** Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away! We’ve pulled together cupid approved cocktails to complete your evening. Grenadine is a common ingredient in all of these recipes. FamousFoods.com suggests using Stirrings Authentic Grenadine Bar Ingredient. Unlike common grenadine mixes that are made with corn syrup and red #40 this mix uses crushed pomegranate seeds that reveal a bold red, sweet, with a bright pomegranate flavor. And of course you only want the best for you sweetheart so make sure to purchase Stirrings. The recipes we chose are perfect before, during, and after dinner. If it’s not quite 5 o’clock yet the Cherry Bomb is a delicious non-alcoholic drink. The very festive Sweetie Martini is made with white chocolate liqueur and will make a sweet after dinner drink for you and your loved one. My personal favorite is Jamaican Me Crazy made with rum, grenadine, and fresh juices. See all of the Grenadine Valentine’s Drinks below; click through to find the whole recipe.
