Valentine’s Day Tips from the Pros

February 14, 2017 Updated: September 8, 2020

A young woman stands at the front door of her home and reads the card from a big bouquet of flowers . Behind her is the delivery girl who has just dropped them off. The shallow focus is on the bouquet blurring off to the people.

A little bubbly goes with everything.

Rob Peters, UFCW Local 1776 member and Wine Specialist, Fine Wine & Good Spirits store 4646 in Ardmore, PA says “When it comes to Valentine’s Day, I always recommend sparkling wine because it is popular, versatile and celebratory, i.e. ‘pop the cork.’ Sparkling wine can be used at any time before, during or after dinner.”

There are many varieties of sparkling wine, but Rob recommends sparkling wines from California, Prosecco from Italy or the classic: champagne from France.

Chocolate is always a winner.

When you give a box of Russell Stover, Ghiradelli chocolate or Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses, know they taste a little sweeter because they are made with love by talented UFCW members. Making chocolates is an art form, one your Valentine is sure to love.

UFCW members who make See’s candies craft each chocolate confection by hand. More care and expertise is needed than you might think. Take a look at what goes into the making of these tasty treats and get a glimpse inside the plant where Lucy and Ethel of the classic TV show “I Love Lucy” found out they couldn’t quite hack it:
