Fun Friday: What Valentine’s Candy Are You Hoping For?

I thought for awhile about what question I could ask today and then it hit me. Valentine’s Day is next Tuesday! Obviously I had to ask something related. :P


So, my husband and I are cheap. Perhaps it’s a remnant leftover from college days or just part of our personalities. But we. like. discounts.

So every year, we buy each other candy the day AFTER Valentine’s Day. Because it’s half-priced. Yeah, baby.

Normally, I request Sour Patch Kids or Skittles or some other non-chocolate candy. (I know, I know, what? My mother would be ashamed of me.)

But this year, I’ve discovered a new treat: Dove white chocolates.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Sooooooooo good!!

I’ve already informed my husband that THIS is my candy of choice this V-Day. Maybe I’m making Mom proud after all. J

What about you? What candy are you hoping to get from your significant other on Valentine’s Day? (Or what candy are you buying for yourself? It doesn’t matter how you get it!)

  1. I'm a caramel type. Or twizzlers. I know this will be a shocker to many, but I don't do too much chocolate.

    1. Mmm, twizzlers. I like twizzlers. But not the pull-n-peel kind. My husband likes those, but I prefer the plain ol' strawberry flavor. Yum.

  2. I don't get candy from him and I don't like candy that much. So...not sure. I love most chocolates (but not the cheap kinds). Heather....I'm completely shocked. Horrified. *grin*

    1. See, Jessica? That's why you should have him shop for chocolates the day after V-Day! :P He can afford twice as many of the expensive chocolates that way.

  3. I don't think we've ever exchanged candy, come to think about it. ;) But Dove anything works for me!

    1. That's all we usually do! Sometimes he gets me flowers, but other than that, we actually don't make a big deal about Valentine's Day. It's more about our anniversary and birthdays. That's when we go all out.

  4. "So, my husband and I are cheap." This is hilarious. I hear you are now a sucker for chocolate chip cookies. Maybe thrifty Troll Mike can bake you a discounted batch of Valentine cookies.

    1. Yay, Ziggy! You're on my blog! And yes, it's hilarious...but true.

      And great, does everyone know about my weakness for chocolate chip cookies? Thanks a lot, Laura Harrel! Yesterday I went over to my mother-in-law's and she had baked a whole batch...just for me! Oy vey.

  5. I gave up most sweets several years back in an effort to keep my middle-aged middle from expanding any more than it already had. These days my one indulgence is shortbread, especially the homemade variety my hubby makes for me. I've managed to convince myself it's not really a sweet since it's shortbread. Tricky, aren't I? I do have to be careful, though. I really love the stuff, but if I eat as much as I want I get a shortbread spread. :-)

    1. Tricky, tricky. :P It's probably so much better than eating all the sweets I do. Sigh. It's funny...I have so much self-control in other areas, but food is where I struggle most.

  6. Oh, you know what I love? Those little Cadbury chocolate eggs that come out at Easter. (They also come out as little balls around Christmas). Why has Cadbury not made a Valentine's version. But hey, if you're waiting until after Valentine's, they'll probably be on shelves for Easter the day after V-Day. :) Mmm...now I'm hungry...

    1. Ha! Whenever we mention food, whether it be BBQ or candy, it makes you hungry...LOL. You're my kind of woman!

  7. The hubby always buys me those Almond Rocha candies even though I don't like them. He likes them. That's probably why he buys them.

    But I usually don't like candy on Valentine's Day anyway. After all the sweets from Christmas, I am usually SICK of candy by February!

    Although....rasberry cheesecake for dessert will work for me after dinner on V-Day!

    1. Oh, yum, Ruth. Sounds like you're going to have a great date night tonight! (Saw your post on Facebook)

  8. My husband does great on Valentine's Day -- actually, he gives me flowers and cards all throughout the year. I'm not complaining. But he doesn't buy me candy for Valentine's Day.
    :O)

  9. Well, what kind did you get? Was Mike able to find just the right leftovers - tricky wanting specific sale leftovers! I promised my Bible quiz team a hart shaped box of chockies for anyone who could answer my question of the day knowing I would be able to buy a nice sized box for cheap today. One of the team actually told me today she didn't try to come up with the answer for fear of winning and then eating the chocolate. phfff girls!

    1. Well, he got me white chocolate but couldn't find the Dove. But that's OK. He got me flowers too! What a guy, huh? :)

      And that's hilarious. You should understand this by now, with 2 daughters! Guess you'll have to offer a pedicure next time...see how many girls perk up then!
