#SoooBoca loves to celebrate love! We especially love to celebrate Valentine’s Day and have shared some of our favorite sweets and treats spots with you. There are so many little gestures you can do to show your love, in fact, according to Fooddive.com, “A survey from the National Confectioners Association found 80 percent of Americans plan to share chocolate and candy with friends, family and loved ones for Valentine’s Day.”
In order to help make your Valentine’s Day gift giving easier, we are sharing suggestions of where you can purchase some of our favorite sweets this year, candy and cookies.
Truth be told, the mere mention of Valentine’s Day makes us think of heart shaped boxes filled with chocolates, exotic truffles and chocolate covered strawberries and shops in #SoooBoca have exactly what we are looking for!
