The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory stores in Duluth are running a “Fudge for Troops” promotion throughout the month of September to benefit U.S. Military Personnel serving overseas. They have teamed up with the Lake Superior Chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America to provide free fudge for care packages to be sent to service men and women stationed outside the U.S.
Beginning September 1st, for every customer who purchases one pound of fudge at either the Canal Park or Miller Mall store locations, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory will send a free matching pound of their hand made fudge to our troops overseas. According to local store owners Debbie and Michael Bolen, “This is a continuation of a very popular promotion that we started in 2010. Customers can enjoy a sweet experience and support our troops. It will be a small way for us to show some appreciation to the troops who do so much for all of us.”
The care packages will be sent out in time for the holiday season. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is a franchised gourmet chocolate store specializing in store made fudge, handmade chocolates, caramel apples, dipped strawberries and gift boxes of candy. There are two Duluth locations: 395 Lake Ave. South in Canal Park and in the Miller Hill Mall.
The Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. is a non-profit service organization supporting our military children while promoting patriotism. They are made up of the mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the military.
