Hand-Dipped & Decorated Strawberries at Prisco’s This Week.

If you have never seen or tasted one of our JUMBO Driscoll’s strawberries on a stem, dipped in rich chocolate (with many then rolled in some other heavenly delight), you have got to stop in and pick up a pair or a dozen.

Thanks to my sister Bridget, these have become a signature item at Prisco’s every Valentine’s Day. Just biting into one is an experience: the juicy berry will ooze sweet strawberry nectar followed by a burst of sweet as the chocolate hits your taste buds. What’s your pleasure? Dark chocolate, white chocolate, or milk chocolate? Rolled in crushed walnuts or made to look like a dressy tuxedo? We have a huge selection available and will continue to make more daily until we run out of strawberries.

We brought back another customer favorite this year but made it even easier to shop for by cutting out some of the additives and dropping the price by $20: This year you can pick up the makings of a romantic Surf & Turf dinner for two for under $30. The package includes two 5 to 6 oz. USDA Choice Prisco’s Angus Beef Filet Mignon Steaks plus two cold water lobster tails, 4 to 5 oz. ea., for just $29.99.

You might also like to consider adding a pair of Maryland-Style Crab Cakes as an appetizer and top dinner off with some hand-packed Angelo Gelato or Sorbetto. For Valentine’s Day we are featuring Cherry Sorbetto, Cherry Vanilla Gelato, and Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cheesecake Gelato.

In our frozen pasta case in the first aisle, look for the red and white heart-shaped ravioli; and we also brought in some heart-shaped brie which you should find in our new cheese case in the center of aisle one. For those who enjoy a good craft beer with, after, or before dinner, we have a nice selection of chocolate flavored beers highlighted in our ad this week, including locally brewed Hubbard’s Cave Imperial Stout Chocolate, and Raspberry Pot de Crème…heavenly!

Finally, Gentlemen, you can make it a one stop shopping trip. No need to stop at a florist or greeting card shop as we have a wide selection of long stem roses and other bouquets and floral arrangements, plus plenty of romantic Valentine's cards available in the front of the store.

Have a great Valentine’s Day, and whatever you do don’t miss out on the gourmet hand-made chocolate covered strawberries.
