Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and Virginia Gourmet has many wonderful healthy Valentine’s Day goodies. Naturally, it would not be Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Why not try our new heart healthy chocolates. These handmade dark chocolates have a 98% cocoa content, are made using a blend of cocoa beans and a dash of sea salt (No sugar added!), then shaped into roses and bite-sized sea shells. The sea salt is one of the secrets, making the sweetest and best tasting dark chocolate you will ever experience. Roses can be purchased singly or in a bouquet. The bite-sized sea shell shapes are individually wrapped and packaged in a ½ pound box. According to the Department of Cardiology at Riverside Regional Medical Center, consumption of ¼ pound of dark chocolate containing 97% or more cocoa per week (2 pieces of our chocolate per day) is healthy for your heart. Show the one you love that you care by giving the gift of heart healthy handmade dark chocolates.
Another great Valentine’s Day treat is our coffee beans available in Revolutionary Roast & the Virginia Symphony Orchestra Blend (for the “coffee purist”); Roasted Chestnut (for those who like their coffee bolder with a caramel finish); or Southern Pecan (for those who like their coffee sweet). Drop in one of our heart healthy chocolates to make a mocha coffee.
When planning your Valentine’s Day meal, consider serving bison. We offer bison hot dogs, bison steaks, and bison burgers. Any one of these will make a lean and hearty Valentine’s meal. Add a side of our fresh vegetable pastas to round-out your meal.
Naturally, our Bloody Mary Mix is a perfect way to celebrate any holiday or just a day. Our Bloody Mary Mix is authentic Eastern Shore made with real clam juice and anchovies. It’s not just a drink – use it to jazz-up chopped meat, for cold cucumber soup or gazpacho, or make a cocktail sauce with it!
This is just a small sample of what Virginia Gourmet has to offer for the ones you love on Valentine’s Day. Stop in the shop and let us help you prepare for your special day! Give from the heart by supporting local! Happy Valentine’s Day!
