b*eats :: if you’re going to buy candy

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s time to figure out how to express some affection for your loved one. Now, you may be tempted to buy a box of those conversation hearts littered with message like “TXT ME”. But let me assure you, there is a better way. If you’re buying your valentine candy, I can point you in a sweeter direction.

Below are my top four foodie picks for Valentine’s Day (not) candy. Two are slightly aimed for the boys and two are slightly aimed for the girls, but let’s be honest, I’d eat any one of these things, so…whatever. Each of these items are made in small batches by cottage-industry cooks and bakers. They are handcrafted with love. Perfect for your darling.
