Make Your Memorial Day Sweet

Posted on 05/15/2015 by admin   | No Comments

The weather is heating up and that means it is almost time for summer! Finally! Hot days, cool nights, afternoons at the beach, sand between our toes and memories made with family and friends.   Memorial Day is the official kick off of summer! Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of BBQ season!  So while you’re making the dogs and burgers on the grill, why don’t you think about ordering something delicious for dessert from Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe. With a variety of patriotic chocolates and favors, how could you possibly go wrong?  We have Flag Pops, Chocolate Hat Pops and Patriotic Pretzel Rods.  If you’re attending a BBQ, how about giving the host a Basket of Patriotic Pretzels or a tray of our delicious Chocolate Covered Strawberries.  These tasty treats will add some fun and flavor to your annual BBQ!

As much as we at Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe love a good BBQ, it is important to remember that Memorial Day is not just a three day weekend.  For many, the holiday holds a closer meaning.  American soldiers have sacrificed so much to preserve the freedom that we as Americans have. So while you’re eating your sweet treats from Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe, please take a moment to remember the soldiers who valiantly fought to protect the United States of America.

Lucky for you, Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe has plenty of goodies to treat yourself to on St. Patrick’s Day. We may not have real gold coins but chocolate is rich in and of itself. Wouldn’t you say?

Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe!

September was such a busy month at Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe!

We hosted a stop on the Taste of Atlantic Highlands tour, sharing our chocolates with local foodies, and meeting some wonderful new friends.

We were also so pleased to be part of the red carpet premier for Destressed, an award-winning documentary. We gave samples of our chocolates to the cast, and crew, and enjoyed a fantastic premier party. (You can read more about the event here).

Next month, we have even more great events to look forward to!

On October 9, we’ll be featured at the Best of Monmouth event at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel in Asbury Park. There will be great dishes from local restaurants, lots of drinks – and of course, our own sweet treats.

Then, on October 12, we’ll be taking part in The Chocolate Party at the Water Witch Coffee and Tea Co. in Highlands. The event – which includes coffee, tea, pastries, and chocolate – is in support of Children’s Cancer Research and Infinite Love for Natalie Grace.

We’ll also be at the Michael’s Feat Wine & Chef’s Tasting at the Mill in Springlake on October 14, with more good food and good wine! If you’d like to join in on the fun, stop by Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe to purchase tickets.

And of course, we’re getting ready for one of our busiest times of year: Halloween!

We’re pouring chocolate pumpkins, witches, black cats, and more fun and festive holiday treats to share all month long. And, we want to hear from you; What’s your all-time favorite Halloween candy? Share with us on our Facebook page, and you could be our fan of the week.

A Family Tradition of Homemade Chocolate Continues

Posted on 08/26/2014 by Suzi   | No Comments

suzi's sweet shoppe homemade chocolateBeing a family owned and operated chocolate shop since 1998 has provided us with a way to combine our passion for chocolate with our love of family.  Working side by side with each other and our children every day, creating incredible homemade fudge and chocolate using our time-honored recipes and old-world craftsmanship techniques, it’s amazing to see how our work ethic, values and creativity have been handed down to the next generation.  This is the legacy of a family-owned business right in front of our eyes!

None of this could have prepared us for just how our family traditions and legacy has come to life this week with the birth of our new granddaughter, Isabella Elizabeth!  Many of our local customers who have been to the store know our daughter Cassandra, as she also works with us in the store.  Every day she helps make the homemade chocolate and fudge, wait on customers and fill orders for shipping.  It’s always been our dream when we retire to eventually turn the store over to our children, and with the birth of her daughter we now have a new generation in our family.  This gives us yet another reason to continue our family tradition of pride and passion for chocolate!

2014 has proven to be a year of exciting events and continued success.  We were recently voted Best Chocolate and Candy in Monmouth County by Best in Monmouth Health and Life readers for the fifth year in a row, and are aiming to be voted the Best Chocolate in the state of New Jersey.  And, with the birth of our new granddaughter, we feel truly blessed to continue to do what we love with the people that we love at our side!

For more information on Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe, visit our website and you’ll find a large variety of homemade chocolates, hand-dipped fruits and pretzels, and gift ideas from our family to yours.  We can customize corporate branded gift baskets and boxes so that your company will stand out from the competition.  We ship gifts all over the country, so all your out-of-area gifts can be sent without you having to stand on line at the post office.  Stop by the store in Middletown or call us today at 732-896-0115.

Our favorite part of the holidays is coming up with new and fun gift ideas to surprise your friends, family and clients that are unique and memorable.  So, even though it’s above 80 degrees and you are probably on the beach soaking up the sun while reading this post, we decided it was a good idea to come up with some great ideas to jump-start your holiday shopping!

As the saying goes, “There’s no time like the present.” And by present we not only mean the time is now, but also present, as in “gift”!  Before you wait until it’s time to scour the malls at the last minute to pick up whatever you can get your hands on, take a little bit of time to plan this summer and holiday shopping will be easy come this fall.  And if you are shopping for corporate gifts, show your gratitude to clients and employees in the form of a corporate gift.  Here are some great ideas that will make you stand out as the best gift-giver this holiday season.

A Basket of Cheer Will Be Much Appreciated

When it comes to holiday giving, a beautiful gift basket of chocolate and candy can provide some much needed cheer during the holidays.  We recommend combining different selections, like fudge, peppermint bark and assorted chocolates so that your gift has variety.  Custom corporate branded gift baskets are a number one choice when shopping for clients.  By adding your company logo, your gift will stand out from the competition. Gift baskets are perfect for family, friends or client office gifts.

A Box or Two Will Do

Stacked boxes of assorted chocolates provide for a variety of flavors, fillings and chocolate varieties and can be the perfect gift for large offices or families.  You can select any size box or candy weight that is appropriate and your company logo can go outside, or on a chocolate bar inside!  Your client, friend or family members will love the delicious assortment of chocolates and will be reminded of you every time they open the box to enjoy another piece.

Attending a Holiday Party?

Don’t just bring a bottle of wine.  Bring a bottle of wine or champagne dipped inhostess gifts holiday gift giving chocolate and you will no doubt have the best hostess gift at the party!  By combining two great gifts into a unique and memorable one, your creativity will shine throughout the holiday season.
