Hershey’s and a Valentine’s Day Reminder

Yes, this is a reminder to all of you that next month is the beloved Valentine’s Day.  Or, as in some cases, the dreaded Valentine’s Day.

Whichever way you  look at Valentine’s Day I doubt you will deny the fact that you enjoy indulging in a little chocolate, or some type of candy on or around the 14th of February each year.

This year alone, The Hershey Company is predicting over 36 million heart shaped boxes of chocolates will be sold.  That’s right, 36 million!  And yes, this post is all about Hershey.  Let me give you the low down…

The Hershey Company doesn’t fool around when it comes to celebrating the holidays.  They recently partnered with art students from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where they designed the heart shaped boxes for this years Hershey’s Pot of Gold Premium Collection, and Pot of Gold Truffles.  The designs are so beautiful;  I have decided my favorite is their new paisley printed heart shaped box.


If you aren’t one of the 36 million people that is planning on buying a  heart shaped box of candy this year have no fear – Hershey has a huge selection of other candies for you to choose from.

Now, I’ve got a couple suggestions to  help put you in the Valentine’s Day mood this year.

First, be sure to check out Celebrate with Hershey’s.  There you can shop for their products,  find great holiday craft ideas and recipes, read about the history of Valentine’s Day, and send an eCard.  And don’t forget to sign up for their newsletter which offers a bunch of perks as well.

  1. My husband cooks for me two times a year, my birthday and Valentine’s Day. He’s been really sick for the past few months and we’re hoping he is well enough in a month to cook up a feast for the day. And even if he’s not, we’ll still get to spend it together.

  2. Great pictures and cute idea! i’m borrowing one of your photos here and will put it on Facebook with your contest announcement, will pin as well. I’ve already won a contest of yours this year so I won’t enter but I’ll tell you that on Valentines Day we do what we do most days. Hold hands and say “I Love You”.

  4. Sweet treats aside, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. 38 years ago on Valentine’s Day I got a son. That was the gift that keeps on giving! Pinned this also.

  5. I will be spending Valentines day with my sweetie pie! Have a romantic dinner and if it cold outside we will snuggle by the fire!

  6. Valentine’s Day is the day Ash Wednesday, I am sure the celebrations for some will exclude chocolate. BUT NOT FOR ME!!!!!
    Actually, I am most happy to spend some time with my darling husband. It is a Thursday so I will quit work, make dinner and we will watch the news together. Probably a few extra smooches will be on the menu.
