Celebrate Mother’s Day with Something Sweet

Mothers day and candies

Celebrate your mom with some of her favorite candies and chocolates from Wockenfuss.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner on Sunday, May 10, 2015.  Remember your mother, grandmother and any mother-figure in your life by treating them to something sweet.   Though Mother’s Day as we know it didn’t become a recognized holiday until 1914, motherhood has been historically celebrated for longer than most people know. From its roots as an ancient Roman and Greek festival honoring mother goddesses, to a Civil War group dedicated to bringing the Union and Confederacy together, to Anna Jarvis’ desire to celebrate the achievements of women as mothers, the holiday has quite a storied history. Since the opening of the first Wockenfuss Candies shop in 1915, sons and daughters have flocked to Wockenfuss to purchase sweets that perfectly celebrate Mother’s Day.

Give the Mother’s Day Gift of Wockenfuss

Mother’s Day is a great day to honor loved ones and celebrate. When you’re looking for the perfect way to send a little bit of appreciation your mother’s way, candies or chocolates are your solution. Keep it simple with a box of our gourmet truffles, or make your mom’s special day a bit more whimsical with delicious fresh caramel apples, some chocolate covered gummi bears, gummi butterflies, or our always popular peanut butter kiss taffy.

All of our retail stores will be selling fresh dipped chocolate covered strawberries on Saturday, May 9.  They will be available in milk or dark chocolate.  Call today to place your order. (Strawberries are available for pick-up only; unfortunately we are not able to ship them.)

If you’re looking to give your mother an even bigger surprise this Mother’s Day, pair her favorite Wockenfuss chocolates or candies with something personal like a hand-made card. Consider creating a basket made up of all of your mom’s favorite things, starting with your Wockenfuss selection. You can add her most loved flowers, lotions, or a favorite book.
