These tasty dollops of chocolate are good any time of year, but when they’re packaged in special pink foil, it just tastes better. You can even find some filled with caramel!

It’s just like a normal Reese’s cup, but it’s heart-shaped! The Hershey’s Kiss principle of holiday candy tasting better applies here.

  1. Red Rose Lollipops

Ring pops, chocolate pops, rose-pops with delicate petals. A rose by any other name would not taste as sweet.

  1. Cupid’s Messages Mix M&Ms

Strawberries, pineapples, melons, strawberries, grapes, strawberries — did I mention strawberries? These sweet treats feigning healthiness are a good idea any time of year.

Ghiradelli, Russel Stover, Godiva… whatever floats your boat. Bonus points if the box is heart-shaped.
