Give Your Special One Specialty Chocolates on Valentine’s Day 

Theresa, Wisconsin, January 19, 2012— For more than 150 years, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates have been the way many people express their heart-felt emotions on Valentine’s Day.  When you give a box of specialty chocolates from Confections for Any Occasion, you’re sending a special message to the one you love.

From the small village of Theresa (population 1,252) comes the big flavor of specialty gourmet chocolates made by a special young entrepreneur, Joel Bernhard. Blind since he was five years old, Joel Bernhard discovered his passion for making chocolates while taking an advanced baking class in school. He followed his dream and, in 2000, he opened Confections for Any Occasion, offering his artisan Swiss-style chocolates.  When you give them as gifts, these one-of-a-kind gourmet chocolates make a statement about your good taste. They’re made with locally sourced ingredients and premium dairy products and can be ordered in a wide range of specialty designs to personalize your gift.

For Valentine’s Day, you can choose from a variety of romantic chocolate gifts. Boxed chocolates, chocolate heart pops on sticks, and “Thinking of You” or “Love” chocolate greeting cards are just a few of the options. Confections for Any Occasion offers customized chocolates that make it easy to please the special someone in your life. Options include chocolate truffles, chewy caramels, rich toffee and a selection of other favorites. You can also order chocolate in customized designs, such as a chocolate glass slipper or a chocolate engagement ring.

True to its name, Confections for Any Occasion provides seasonal selections and chocolates for holidays and special occasions year-round. In addition to customized designs, sugar-free confections are also available.
