Fort Wayne Chocolate Fountain recently introduced chocolate-covered, fresh strawberry gift boxes and party platters that can be delivered. The fresh strawberries are covered in FWCF's hand-blended gourmet chocolate, which is available in three flavors: milk chocolate, white chocolate or dark chocolate.
Wrapped gift boxes filled with 15 chocolate-covered strawberries are available for $25 if picked up by the customer, or for $32 if delivered to the gift recipient within a 30-mile radius of Fort Wayne. A party platter with three dozen chocolate-covered strawberries also can be purchased for $60, plus $6 for delivery to area locations.
“Because our chocolate is dairy-free and gluten-free, we are not limited in having to refrigerate, although we do keep the strawberries cool until delivery time,” FWCF owner Angela Dippel said in a news release. To place an order, call 466-0990 or 486-8279. FWCF is at 8925 Arbor View Court. Online: Go to www.FortWayneChocolateFountain.com.
