On Monday, August 21, we are celebrating Senior Citizens Day and we’re encouraging families to celebrate too!
It is important to show senior citizen loved ones that they are cared for, and we think gourmet chocolates are a great way to express gratitude.
Aging can be incredibly difficult, but it can be made much easier with the love and support of the people around us. Although your presence alone can serve as a great “pick me up” for senior citizens that often spend time alone, chocolate certainly can as well.
Consider Sugar Free Options
Many senior citizens suffer from diabetes, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be able to indulge. We have plenty of sugar free gourmet chocolates available for seniors with health issues that they can enjoy guilt-free. From vanilla caramels to peanut butter cups, we have a variety of sugar-free favorites guaranteed to please.
Give the Gift of Variety
If you aren’t sure what type of chocolates your loved one prefers or you are sure that they would prefer to get a “little taste” of everything, consider giving a gift tower or basket. Each one of our gift baskets has something different to offer. From our Peanut Butter Plus Basket to our Snack Attack Basket, you are guaranteed to find a basket that you feel good giving to someone that means so much. If you’re interested in ordering a gift basket please call ahead and order one: we don’t make them up ahead of time during our summer season.
Mint Options are a Must
Mint is best when combined with chocolate, and luckily, we have several variations of the two combined. From peppermint thins to hostess squares, we have a variety of mint chocolates. Not only are hostess squares a great sweet snack for senior citizens, they are also an easy treat to put out for guests, providing your elderly loved one with a little “hostess gift” for people that stop in and visit.
We All Scream for Ice Cream
If you really want to treat your loved one to something special, visit our Easton Ice Cream Parlor to enjoy homemade ice cream and hot fudge. Many seniors struggle to get out of the house, making a day trip to the ice cream parlor something they’ll cherish for years to come. If you want to give your loved one a Senior Citizen’s Day to remember, fill it with cookie dough ice cream and cherry cordial ice cream.
