It is no secret that I really like candy. Just look at my 40 pound bin of candy. Candy may actually be one of the only reasons I celebrate certain holidays...like Valentine's Day. My wife and I decided long ago that as long as we were good to each other and showed our love all year that Valentine's wouldn't be celebrated any different than any other day.

In fact, we probably celebrate the day after Valentine's more because that's when we go get the discount candy!

Do you have a favorite Valentine's candy? In a study of the most popular candies from CandyStore, I was surprised to find that chocolate is no longer the most popular candy in America - it's those candy conversation hearts. At least we get it right in Idaho and our favorite candy for Valentine's in chocolate candy M&M's.
