Valentine's Day Sweets!


I openly admit, I have a HUGE sweet tooth. Always have. I get it from my dad. If I am in the same room as something sweet, I absolutely cannot keep my hands away.

Somehow Valentines Day has become a holiday for giving candy...not sure who decided the perfect way to show someone you loved them was to give them some chocolate, but it's perfectly fine by me!! I could sit and eat sugary treats all day, and mix in something salty too just for a contrast. Yeah, a chocolate-covered pretzel will do.

Some of my favs:

Who can live without chocolate and peanut butter combined?? I sure can't!


Nuts, nougat, caramel...need I say more?


Only the red ones are any good.


When you need something minty and refreshing!


These little beans are oh so tasty!! When my mom lived in California, we would visit the factory. So so cool!

You craving something sweet yet????? What are your candy favs????

And if you're looking to satisfy your craving for romance, check out my debut from Lyrical Press, A Bitch Named Karma!

Snickers are my fave. I even tried the chocolate with bacon bits and liked it. :)

I like anything chocolate and peanut butter, but one thing I've been wanting to try forever are the Mounds dark chocolate bars with the lime. I can't find them anywhere, and when I do see them in a neighboring town, the box is empty! *pout*

My downfall will forever be Almond Joy bars. sighhh...want one right now. That creamy rich chocolate and coconut is calling to me. Back later. LOL

OOh, Swedish fish! Love 'em!
I'll be getting birthday cake pretty soon and that will have to do me-- I've never received candy on V-day, no matter what. Strange, since I've been in one monogamous relationship or other almost constantly since the age of 17..

Now I think of it, my fave would be something like the chili-chocolate bar I secretly bought yesterday (secret from The DH), or Dark Chocolate Almond Joy.
I've always loved bittersweet, and not just in candy.
