Minds at Mines: Valentine’s Day Candy

With Valentine’s day fast approaching, candy sales begin to skyrocket as the big day nears. From heart shaped boxes of chocolates to pink and red packaging, candy makers change their products in drastic ways for February 14. The seasonal availability of these candies makes them so much more delicious. To find out these favorites, Minds at Mines asks, “What is your favorite Valentine’s day candy and why?”

I think the cinnamon hearts are okay. They are a sweet snack to munch on that you can buy by the pound. After a while though, they start to burn. It feels like they take the taste buds off of your tongue.

My favorite candies are cherry M and M’s. They are a new flavor perfect for Valentine’s Day, and I think you can only buy them during this time of year.

I’m not really sure about a favorite candy, but I know that I don’t like those candy hearts. They’re chalky and the messages are the same thing over and over.

I would have to go with the big Reese’s hearts. Chocolate and peanut butter are a great combination and it’s even better in a festive shape.

Andrew Gudal
I like M and M’s with the ‘To’ and ‘From’ on the bags. For Valentine’s Day, they were the staple candy in elementary school.
