Free Chocolate? Yes Please. Thank you, Mrs. Cavanaugh

Y’all … I really love chocolate. It goes with everything … donuts, milk, cookies, raisins, nuts, WINE. I’m a chocoholic in the worst sense of the word. I especially love those little chocolates that are given as gifts to the people that everything – you know the kind I’m talking about – the chocolates in the box. It has every flavor you can think of!  The most famous of those chocolates are Mrs. Cavanaugh’s. Or at least it's MY favorite!

There was a time when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'"

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.

"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....
Ask chocolate aficionados. {I’ve always wanted to fit that word into one of my blog posts!} They will direct those seeking the best chocolates to the popular, Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies.

Whatever the case may be, Mrs. Cavanaugh is giving MY readers an awesome deal!
