Something Sweet for Valentine’s Day

on February 12, 2016

When you think about what to buy your loved ones on Valentine’s Day, what are the first things that come to mind? Jewelry? A nice dinner? Perhaps a bouquet of flowers? Well, if you said chocolate, you are not alone. Nearly 60 million pounds of chocolate are purchased every year during the week of Valentine’s Day; that’s enough chocolate to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Chocolate isn’t the only confection popular on and around February 14, though. In addition to heart-shaped boxes filled with cocoa treats, about 8 billion Sweethearts® are produced annually for the holiday and nearly $450 million is spent on candy just during the week of Valentine’s Day.

With so many candy options available to consumers, the selection process can become a little daunting: let us help you out!
