WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Need a deliciously sweet thank you gift for your child’s teacher who perked up your child’s spirits during yet another zoom classroom, your postal carrier who has been working double time this holiday season, or your neighbor who always checked in on you these past several months, even if it was a simple wave from the foot of your driveway?

Nothing says thank you for simply being you, more than a delicious and delectable gift from Niagara Chocolates which you can now conveniently pick up right at your local Tops Friendly Markets. Tops is pleased to offer both milk and dark Niagara Chocolate Sponge Candy (with additional flavors coming in 2021) in both box and tub varieties this holiday season. Created in Buffalo since 1956, this local favorite is a unique confection that has been around as a Western New York tradition for decades. With a crisp, lightly toasted sponge center, it is crafted into the perfect shape, then covered in a rich chocolate coating. One bite will mix a creamy outer layer of chocolate with the crunchy sponge center.

Tops also offers a wide variety of its own delicious confections perfect for gift giving including new items like milk and dark chocolate sea salted caramels made with premium chocolate, real butter, pure vanilla and sea salt. And to fill your Christmas stockings you can pick up classic favorites like Ferrero Rocher’s hazelnut candy - the perfect way to help you celebrate the joy in life’s everyday moments.
