Chukar Cherries Offers New Cherry Heart Box for Valentine’s Day

Pacific Northwest chocolatier crafts all natural, locally made Valentine’s Day gifts.

Prosser, WA, January 16, 2013 --( For Valentine’s Day Chukar Cherries has released a heart-shaped box filled with a selection of artisanal chocolate-covered cherries including their signature dark chocolate Cabernet Cherries. The heart box contains 50% more chocolate than last year’s version and a beautiful new design.

According to Chukar’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tommy Montgomery, the Cherry Heart Box is not your typical box of chocolates. “Chukar’s goal is to create gifts that our customers can feel proud of giving. Consequently, our Cherry Heart Box contains locally grown cherries and nothing but the freshest ingredients.”

Chukar’s passion is creating gifts that are unique and full of Pacific Northwest flair. The company makes nearly everything they sell at their headquarters in Prosser, Washington and uses only premium domestic ingredients. Chukar sources their fruit from local growers and dries it using an innovative, preservative-free process. They never allow artificial ingredients, sulfites, preservatives, or trans-fats into their kitchen.

The Cherry Heart Box is filled with four of Chukar’s best selling chocolate-covered cherry varieties. Dark chocolate Amaretto Rainiers contain a Rainier cherry encased in dark chocolate with natural almond flavor. Cherry Bings and Milk Chocolate Classic Cherries both feature Bing cherries in milk chocolate. Cabernet Cherries contain a Montmorency Tart cherry, dark chocolate, and natural wine flavor.

Chukar Cherries offers an array of Valentine’s gifts for family, friends, and coworkers. In addition to the Cherry Heart Box they carry gifts baskets, towers, tins, and assortments all filled with made-in-Washington chocolates.

Chukar’s treats are available at the company’s factory storefront in Prosser, WA as well as in Pike Place Market and Leavenworth—Washington’s Bavarian village. All Chukar’s products can also be purchased online at
