When making your holiday gift lists, consider the gift of chocolates from Norman Love Confections. The 2018 Holiday Collection from Norman Love Confections features 10 seasonal chocolate confections inspired by the traditional holiday “naughty or nice” list.

The 2018 Norman Love Confections’ Holiday Collection “nice list” features five, festively-named confections filled with the freshest holiday-themed flavors, including Santa (milk chocolate – S’more), Rudolph (dark chocolate – brandied cherry), Candle Light (milk chocolate – gingerbread), Christmas Carol (dark chocolate – java jingle) and Pumpkin Pie (white chocolate – pumpkin pie). Those on the “naughty list” come as no surprise, and include the Abominable Snowman (white chocolate – eggnog), Lump of Coal (dark chocolate – hot cocoa), Scrooge (white chocolate – candy cane), Winter Freeze (milk chocolate – white Christmas) and the Grinch (dark chocolate – mint patty).

An assortment of the holiday flavors will be included in 25- and 50-piece green signature gift boxes, along with a selection of Norman Love’s award-winning signature flavors. The holiday gift boxes are priced at $52.50 and $100 respectively. Norman Love Confections has also created a special, limited-edition candy cane-shaped gift box that includes all 10 chocolates from the holiday collection for $27. In addition, gift baskets filled with a variety of gourmet chocolate holiday items will also be available, including the monthly “mystery boxes” filled with a themed assortment of four to five chocolate treats and limited-edition offerings, delivered to the recipient’s home.

“Our highly acclaimed chefs at Norman Love Confections had a jolly time creating our ‘naughty and nice lists,’ and were inspired by some of the sweetest holiday themes we could think of, as well as recognizable characters who top the season’s ‘naughty list,’ including the Abominable Snowman and Grinch,” said Norman Love, president and founder, Norman Love Confections. “And while the whimsical themed-collection is nostalgic and inspiring, it’s the handmade, artisanal chocolates made using the finest, freshest ingredients that will ensure those on your holiday wish list feel remembered and loved this season.”
