Norman Love Confections honors breast cancer survivors
FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 1, 2014) – Norman Love Confections is observing Breast Cancer Awareness month by recognizing breast cancer survivors with a special promotion. Anyone who purchases a special pink, heart-shaped box of 20 ultra-premium chocolates, priced at $40, during October is invited to share the story of a breast cancer survivor. At the end of the month, one survivor will be chosen to become a member of the Chocolate Club, entitled to a shipment of Norman Love Confections every month for a year. Each shipment will contain 15 pieces, hand-selected by the confectioner’s chocolatiers, with boxes decorated for the season.
The special boxes are available at its three chocolate salons in Fort Myers, Estero and Naples, as well as online at www.normanloveconfections.com. Because the gourmet chocolates are preservative-free with a shelf life of no more than three weeks, the heart-shaped boxes and the prizes can be shipped only within the continental U.S.
The award-winning chocolatier also has launched a monthlong fundraiser with proceeds from the sales of pink chocolate high-heel pumps supporting Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida. The shoes are five inches tall, 6 1/2 inches long, three inches wide and made of 150 grams of milk chocolate. Three dollars from the sale of each $28 shoe will benefit Komen. The pink pumps are available only at the local chocolate salons.
Norman Love Confections creates and distributes handcrafted artisanal chocolates from its Fort Myers corporate headquarters that encompasses both production and retail operations. The three chocolate salons are stylish retail shops with an intimate ambience in which customers may purchase chocolates or linger over house-made pastries, gourmet coffees, lattes and smoothies.
The Fort Myers-based chocolatier has been lauded 13 times by a leading consumer ratings magazine, including recognition six times for producing the best ultra-premium chocolates.
