Before you say “not another made-up holiday” wait just a minute. I think we can all agree that the world could use a little bit of sweetness right now. Everywhere we turn there’s trouble, problems and insults. I don’t know about you but I for one could stand a dose of sweetness and niceness.

If you remember last year we gave you the history of Sweetest Day. It’s probably no surprise that this “holiday” was drummed up by candy companies to increase sales.
However, it was inspired by the thought that Sweetest Day would reward kind works and thoughts with a small sweet treat. Who can fault that?
In that spirit, we think we should celebrate Sweetest Day by giving a little sweetness to someone who has done something special, gone out of their way to make you feel happy or someone in your life that could use a little pick me up.
Sweetest Day, Saturday – October 15th
Sweetest Day falls on the third Saturday in October. Right before the rush of the holiday season. A perfect time to indulge in a special sweet treat.
Ideas For Special Treats
Chocolate typically comes to mind when I think sweets. As a life-long Chicagoan I have an affinity to Fannie May Chocolates. I have a wonderful memories of picking out my favorites with my Grandmother and always knowing that a box of Fannie May would be part of any holiday celebration. They’ve been around producing fine chocolates for over 90 years.
I can’t pass up my all-time favorites, the Fannie May Dark Chocolate Buttercreams. I’ve been eating them longer than I care to say and they still taste the way they did when I was a kid. You can’t say that about many food products.
Over the years Fannie May has added many more delicious choices to their selection that have also piqued my interest.
