Loving Those Sweet Treats
You’re probably very well aware that Tuesday is February 14—Valentine’s Day!
So, have you shopped for something special for your sweetheart (or sweetheart-to-be) yet? Sharing a treat is a delicious way to show you care—and it’s so easy to do here in Solvang since this is the place to satisfy sweet cravings year-round. So many of us crave chocolate! Discover family-owned/operated Ingeborg’s Danish Chocolates that has been using authentic recipes for handmade confections since 1961 (how can you possibly choose between mile or dark chocolate truffles made with filled with so many options?) Also founded in 1961 (what was going on that year?) is the Old Danish Fudge Kitchen that makes the real deal using an impressive copper pot heated over a gas-burning stove mixing 25-pound batches with all-natural ingredients; then poured onto marble tables for cooling (you can watch and sample, try the chocolate peanut butter or yummy dark chocolate and other specialty blends.) And if you can’t make it to Solvang in person right now, both of these shops will ship direct to your sweetheart!And of course, Solvang’s five authentic Danish bakeries have plenty of options too!
If you’re really stumped, you can definitely make reservations for breakfast/lunch or dinner treats at one of Solvang’s incredibly diverse restaurants! For more delicious details, visit http://www.solvangusa.com/dining
