Celebrate the Coming of Spring with Chocolates by Grimaldi

If you’re like most people by the time that March and April roll around you’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of spring and warm, sunny days. Chocolates by Grimaldi would like to give you a few more reasons to look forward to this glorious season, and they all involve chocolate.

March and April are filled with special holidays and occasions that offer the perfect excuse to enjoy chocolate. March 3rd is National I Want You to Be Happy Day. Is there a better way to be happy than with Chocolates by Grimaldi’s Almond Bark, which features whole almonds in rich dark chocolate? National Caramel Day occurs on March 19th and is a perfect time for Chocolates by Grimaldi’s chocolate caramels. And we can’t forget National Lip Appreciation Day which falls on March 16th.

“What better way to show appreciation for your lips than with our chocolate covered potato chips?” said Steve Laham, Co-Owner and Operator of Chocolates by Grimaldi in Grand Haven. “Your lips will love our chips,” he added.

Most of us are also enjoying Spring Break towards the end of March and beginning of April. For those of you that are planning on taking a staycation this year, Chocolates by Grimaldi is offering Spring Break tours. Their $4.00 tours are perfect for the young and young at heart and provide guests with the opportunity to taste fresh samples right off the line. Call 616-935-7740 to reserve your spot in advance.

And what usually falls right before, or right after, Spring Break? Easter, a holiday that is synonymous with chocolate. In celebration, Chocolates by Grimaldi will be offering personalized artisan eggs. Beginning on March 1st customers can call or stop into Chocolates by Grimaldi to order their custom designed eggs. They can select from a solid 14-ounce egg in milk, white, or dark chocolate to have their loved one’s name handwritten in chocolate. Beautifully packaged in an Easter-themed box the eggs are ready for gifting. They can also be shipped anywhere nationwide. The eggs cost $19.95 and they will be available until Friday, April 6, 2018. Please call ahead to order your customized eggs.

If chocolate eggs are not your favorite, Chocolates by Grimaldi has a wonderful selection of chocolate bunnies and other Easter treats available in assorted sizes and shapes in milk, white, and dark chocolate.
