Valentine’s Day is all about the candy, and nothing says “I Love You” better than a big box of chocolates shaped like a heart. At least that’s what the chocolate industry has led men to believe.
Luckily for us and for all our gourmet customers, we have gorgeous heart-shaped candy boxes in red, pink, chocolate and gold. They come in two sizes with slots in the base so you can attach your own ribbon. We recommend 7/8″ to 1″ double-faced satin, grosgrain or organza ribbon for a beautiful finishing touch. We also offer heart-shaped candy pads and candy cups.
We wanted to showcase three of our candy customers who use these boxes. We know the candy business is not easy, and we’re honored they choose Nashville Wraps for their packaging. All of them have a passion for what they do and their chocolates are truly works of art.
DB Chocolate Infusion
DB Chocolate Infusion in Madison, WI has the prettiest artisan chocolates. Their heart-shaped truffles look spectacular in our heart boxes (shown above) tied with double faced satin ribbon. Owner Ann Culliagn creates some of the most unique chocolates, such as Passion Fruit Vanilla with fresh passion fruit puree, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans and Malibu rum. Her Caribbean Fire chocolate combines 70% Ecuadorian chocolate, a fiery center of ancho and chipotle peppers, nutmeg, allspice and jerk seasoning blended into 65% dark chocolate. See all her unique flavors here. They are almost too pretty to eat.
The Hot Chocolatier
Wendy Buckner, owner of The Hot Chocolatier in Chattanooga, TN says, “The heart-shaped boxes from Nashville Wraps are a good way to show off our chocolates without being too expensive. They are made well – we love the fact we can insert our ribbon into the boxes so our bows don’t fall off.”
She and her husband Brandon started their chocolate business in 2008 and last year relocated it directly across from the historic Chattanooga Choo-Choo Hotel. Along with the retail shop, The Hot Chocolatier has a working kitchen where customers can watch as artisan chocolates, confections, one-of-a-kind sculptures, showpieces, and customized favors are created.
Black Dinah Chocolatiers
Steve & Kate Shaffer own Black Dinah Chocolatiers on the remote Isle Au Haut off the coast of Maine. They use single-origin chocolate from Venezuela and Peru, which have been grown and produced sustainably. They combine this chocolate with the freshest locally-produced cream, butter, herbs, fruits and flowers they’ve gathered from a network of family farms and gardens in Maine. Their handcrafted truffles and confections have garnered accolades and awards from all over the country, including Top 10 Chocolatier in North America. See how beautifully they wrapped our heart boxes with our Wired Sheer Satin Stripe Ribbon.
