Union-Made Valentine's Day Sweets
When you're searching for something sweet for that special person for Valentine's Day, why not buy union-made-in-America treats?
Here's a list of choices of candy products made by members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM); snack foods by members of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW); or fruit and nuts from members of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW).
As with a lot of traditionally union-made products, more are being cross-produced (union-non-union; US-Mexico), so be sure to read labels to ensure that your candy is union-made in the United States. If you know of any union-made candy missing from this list, please leave a comment below and we will add it!
