by National AFL-CIO News Now

Why not give your valentine some Union-Made sweets this Sunday (February 14th), toast your love with champagne that carries a Union Label or touch up your pheromones a bit with some smell-good Union-Made scents.

It turns out there are many Union-Made treats you can give out on Valentine's Day.

For example, the iconic Necco Candy Sweethearts Conversation Hearts are made by members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers (BCTGM).

And several familiar sparkling libations such as J. Roget and Tott’s are produced by the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW).

Here are some more products compiled by our friends at Labor 411, the Union Business Directory from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, products made by Union Members:

Chocolate: Ghirardelli Chocolate; Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses; and Russell Stover.

Champagne: Andre; Cook’s; Eden Roc; J. Roget; Jacques Bonet; Jacques Reynard; JFJ; Le Domaine; Tott’s; and Wycliff

Fragrances: Avon; Hugo Boss; Old Spice; and Pierre Cardin.
