BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU: A $75 CANDY BASKET GIVEAWAY!





Nothing says “Valentine’s Day” like delicious chocolates. But don’t settle for a store-bought box of chocolate when you can have hand-dipped delights from The Chocolate Covered Wagon. This post really requires few words. I mean, just take a look at this decadence. 


GIVEAWAY TODAY

Before we go into a chocolate coma, I want to tell you that there’s another Because We Love YOU giveaway attached to this post. How would you like to win this giant basket full of delicious candy indulgences? It’s a $75 value for this sweetness. More on how to enter, as well as the winner as last week’s Pamper Package Giveaway, at the end of this post. 



CHOCOLATE COVERED FRUIT

Did you know the Chocolate Covered Wagon dips fresh fruit daily? Resulting in some of the most delicious chocolate covered strawberries, raspberries and even grapes! 




Want even more to make your mouth water? How about taking those divine berries and adding toppings, such as chopped nuts, toffee and even crushed Oreo?





CARAMEL APPLES 



Perhaps apples are more your speed. Only extra fancy Granny Smith apples at Chocolate Covered Wagon. Like the berries, their impressive variety of caramel apples are made fresh in their store, using their special homemade caramel recipe. 


To see a complete list of apple options -- the recipes are quite fantastic -- check out the Chocolate Covered Wagon website. Your gift apples will even come gift wrapped with a pretty red bow! 

HOW TO ORDER

Valentine’s Day can be a busy one when it comes to buying gourmet goodies. Here’s a tip from Chocolate Covered Wagon that will have you making the most of your time so you have more time at home with your special someone. Call ahead and place your order. 


Simply call the store at and make your purchase ahead of time. There will be a separate pre-paid area set up so you can get in, get out, and get exactly what you want. To see what your numerous options are, visit the Chocolate Covered Wagon website.



Didn’t think to call ahead? No worries. The awesome candy makers basically pull an all-nighter the night before to ensure they have enough treats to go around. Come in the day of, or even the day before, and you can pick out precisely what you want to make your crush smile. 



THE DIY APPROACH

Perhaps you want to make your own candy-coated fruit. Come in to Chocolate Covered Wagon and ask for their free handout, which gives you all the info you need to know to make your own sweet treats.
