Norman Love Confections introduces 2016 Mother’s Day Collection, Inspired by MOM
Featuring flavors submitted by customers and inspired by real moms, Norman Love Confections introduces its 2016 Mother’s Day Collection.
With mom in mind, Norman Love launched a contest, inviting the public to submit flavors for its 2016 Mother’s Love Collection. Based on submissions, chefs selected ten flavors as the inspiration to create a Norman Love confection to become part of the 2016 limited-edition Mother’s Love line. Those selected will receive a free 25-piece Mother’s Day gift box delivered to the recipient of their choice for Mother’s Day.
“Our customers shared with us the flavors that reflect a special childhood memory, a story, or just because they are mom’s favorite flavors. Based on submissions, we selected ten flavors and have created a special line of artisan confections inspired by real moms.” said Norman Love, founder and president of Norman Love Confections. “I enjoy that this contest made our customers think of their moms and recall special moments. Moms are most often the ones who inspire our hopes and dreams, so this new Mother’s Day Collection is dedicated to all those moms or mother figures who work hard every day and serve as an inspiration to their children, grandchildren and loved ones.”
Among the inspirational moms submitted was Mary Love, who co-founded Norman Love Confections with her husband. Submitted by daughter Carly Love, Mary’s Lovely Toffee Coffee is dedicated to the moms like Mary who love the simple things in life – like chocolate.
