Happy Valentine's Day

I know Valentine's Day is a bit of a bogus holiday, but it's still fun for me (last year I wrote about it here and here). A chance for a bit more color and Joy (and love) in the middle of dreary February is a good thing, I think.




This year I thought these conversation hearts would be fun and festive.  Little did I know they no longer taste so good. I read on the company's website that they reformulated the candies with new flavors and a softer texture so that they "are more fun to eat." I liked the old ones better. Guess that officially makes me an old fuddy duddy. In any case, it was fun to look at all the sayings (also reformulated... created entirely from customer suggestions).




A lot of the printing was off or unreadable.




Sometimes with funny or weird results.






So even though I'm not going to be eating them, it was worth it for the amusement factor.

Bogus or not, I'm sending some Valentine's cheer to each of you today.

  3. The hearts look lovely in the jar. How dissapointing that the quality isn't as good as it used to be. I think I would be amused by them too!
