A St. Louis Parent Accidentally Gave Preschoolers Alcoholic Chocolates For Valentine's Day

Children at a St. Louis preschool were sent home with liquor-filled chocolates after a Valentine’s Day party gone wrong.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Aisha Sultan reports that a parent mistakenly put the treats — which included Stoli Russian Vodka Orange chocolates — in gift boxes for students.
