Fresh Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Rose Water Truffles are two highly coveted Valentine’s Day Collection items, and are only available at Aigner’s around this Holiday.

“Aigner Chocolates has single-handedly gotten me out of the dog house before. Some even say that Cupid’s arrows are made entirely from Aigner’s Chocolate. That myth has yet to be debunked,” said local resident, Michael Mattera.

“You can’t go wrong with chocolate, candy, and other sweet treats at Aigner’s. Plus, you would be supporting a local business that is actively involved in making the community a better place,” said Jessica Sanchez, a patron of the thriving Chocolate Shop.
