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.
