Sweets From Your Sweet.

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.)




I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.

  1. That's so funny. The whole time I was reading this I was thinking, this is really for her husband right? Just in case he needs a reminder, then the end of the post, icing, LOVE IT.

    I feel like I spend so much time trying to avoid the endless candy that accumulates around this house I can't even bring myself to list my favorites. I usually make heart shaped pizzas for the kids and get them each a little sweet card with a pink & red treat of some sort, kind of boring but they will love it. : )

  3. The Roman nougat is my favorite, too! It's funny though because I never knew what they were called. What's not funny is there is nothing even close to them here in France! :(
