To celebrate Valentine’s Day and first love, Norman Love has brought back ten favorite Norman Love Signature flavors from years past. The limited-edition First Love collection features heart-shaped chocolates available with the assortment of 36 Norman Love Confections’ Signature flavors in gift boxes of all sizes, or in the limited-edition heart-shaped gift boxes. As you can see from the photos above, I received them in one of his traditional boxes, featuring three of the First Love Signature chocolates and two of Norman Love’s other chocolates.
