Candy, flower shops busy filling Valentine's Day orders

EXETER TWP., Pa. - For some local businesses, Valentine's Day is one of the busiest days of the year.

Flower shops like Heck Brothers Florist in Exeter Township and Wyomissing are arranging hundreds of bouquets, filled with red roses and balloons.

From sweet smells to sweet tastes, customers are also heading to bakeries and chocolate shops, like Sweet Surprises in West Reading, for a tasty way to say "I love you."

"You'll always have the regular fine chocolates, but you know, if they want to do something a little special, that's when they pull out the cashew patties and the strawberries," said Jennifer Bednez, chief chocolate officer at Sweet Surprises.

Other popular edible gifts include chocolate-covered pretzels and chocolate roses.
