Local candy shop prepares for Valentine’s Day


(WEHT)- As one of the biggest gift-giving holidays of the year, Valentine’s Day usually means a big day for cards, roses, and chocolate. For local candy shops like Sweet Schmitt’s Candy in Evansville, that means a potentially big day for business.

Michael Schmitt, owner of Sweet Schmitt’s Candy says he’s noticed an uptick in sales and pre-orders in the run-up to the holiday, especially with orders from Facebook.

In addition to their standard lineup of chocolates and caramels, Schmitt says they are also offering chocolate-dipped strawberries in white, milk, and dark chocolate. While they are not on the standard menu, Schmitt says they may decide to offer other dipped berries and fruits in the future.
