It's one of my favorite weeks of the whole year! Valentine's Week! Yipppeeee!!!
I'm a sucker for all things pink, white, red, and lovely. I can't explain what it does to my heart and soul when I see the charming little treats and gifts. It's. Just. FUN!
When it comes to Valentine candy, I have three clear front runners on the favorites list. Now really, there's not much candy I will deny. But a girl definitely has her favorites. Let's dish.
Mmmm. Gobstopper hearts. Few things are quite as delicious as Gobstopper hearts. I love them! I wish they made these all year long because they're the perfect size, shape and flavor. Much better than the regular round ones. Yum.
I mean .... the Reese's Peanut Butter seasonal shapes are clearly the best, and the heart surely doesn't disappoint! I eat the V part first and finish off with the top humps. Mmmm. I could eat these every day for the rest of my life and be a happy girl.
This is an awful picture, but my all time FAVORITE Valentine candy is the Russell Stover Roman Nougat. Husby has surprised me with a whole box of them the past few years, because in the regular assorted box you only get a couple. And they are just so delicious. The inside is pink (yay, cute!), but with the consistency of a hard caramel, with some chopped nuts in there. OH. MY. GOODNESS. They are the best. The best! I always get my fill of them this time of year, and what a glorious feeling in my tum-tum.
Now. I may be shunned for this upcoming comment, but you guys. I don't like these.
Now don't get me wrong. They are as adorable as the day is long, but they just taste like chalk to me. I buy them every year to decorate with and to play the game with, but you'll not catch me pop one in my mouth. It's kind of like candy corn - I just can't do it!
What kinds of candies will you be sneaking bites of or dropping hints for this year?
(**HUBSY!! THIS IS MY HINT IN CASE YOU DIDN'T GET IT. OKAY? RUSSELL STOVER ROMAN NOUGAT. THIS IS NOT A TEST. IT IS A VERY REAL AND VERY UNSUBTLE HINT JUST IN CASE YOU FORGOT BECAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE BUSY. I'M SUPER SWEET LIKE THAT. ALWAYS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU! K? THANKS, LOVE YOU, BYE.)
