Memphis' Dinstuhl's Candies Is Ready For The Valentine's Day Rush

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Sweets for your sweetie on Valentine's Day. Dinstuhl's Candies is gearing up and getting ready for the day of love.

Their most popular treat, chocolate covered strawberries, is even more popular this year.

"It's all local Memphis,” says Rebecca Dinstuhl, President of Dinstuhl's Candies.

We do love Local Memphis, but Rebecca Dinstuhl isn't talking about the TV station. She's talking about the candy company which has been a part of Memphis for 115 years.

"Dinstuhl's is such a sweet business,” she says.

It's also a labor of love this time of year; one of the busiest season's for Dinstuhl's Candies on Pleasant View in northeast Memphis, with Valentine Day right around the corner.

"We will dip over 6,000 pounds of chocolate covered strawberries,” says Dinstuhl. “That's gonna equal about 50,000 strawberries."

Orders for strawberries start coming in mid-January. Dinstuhl's dips for three days, including Valentine's day.

"Everything that you buy that day was made that morning,” says Dinstuhl.

She says they use a secret ingredient which sets their chocolate covered strawberries apart from the rest. A sugary coating that makes the berries melt in your mouth.

"When you bite into it, you get that wonderful juicy strawberry, so we like to say you can even sit in the bathtub to eat ‘em,” says Dinstuhl.

There are three locations: Laurelwood, Germantown, and Pleasant View in northeast Memphis. You don't have to call in an order. You can visit any of the three locations.

Dinstuhl's will also be making chocolate covered strawberries after Valentine's. They'll be dipping strawberries every Thursday through Labor Day.
