They look cute, right? GLAACK! They are marshmallow (according to the wrapper) but plain ol' Kraft marshmallows are WAY better. These are kind of hard and tasteless. If, however, you need something for a craft project, these might be just the thing!
I was so excited to find these!! And so disappointed to taste them.
If you really like cherry, you may really like these. But they are too cherry for me - I much prefer the regular 3 Musketeers. And look at how scary that pink is! Yeow!
But all is not lost (not by a LONG shot!). Solid winners:
If you haven't tried the dark chocolate peanut M & M's - they are terrific!
And you can't go wrong with a classic:
And these are just delicious:
Dark chocolate with almonds, heart shaped AND with romantic messages inside - the best of the lot. They could get a little more festive with the outside wrapper, but that is a very minor point.
The advice in these is mixed - good advice - "The best things in life are chocolate." Not so good advice - "Trust with your heart, not your head."
I would change that to "Trust, but verify."
Others I might include -
"Actions speak louder than words."
"Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."
"Love of chocolate is never unrequited."
"Don't put yourself last, everyone else will too."
Years ago I discovered the best way to have a great Valentine's Day. Buy yourself what you really want - flowers, chocolate, jewelry - whatever it is. If you don't get what you want from someone else, you'll still be happy. If you do get what you want - that's fantastic - a bonus! Valentine's Day shouldn't be about expectations. Expectations can lead to disappointment and ruin what would otherwise be a fun day.
Remember the last post? Hoping you get a good Valentine's Day gift is useless. Buying yourself a good Valentine's Day gift will make Cupid proud (and you happy).
