There's no better place to be struck by Cupid's arrow than when you're passing the candy aisle. If your taste buds happen to get pinched by the amorous arrow, you'll want to run into the embrace of a pack of Sour Patch Hearts. That's right. Sour Patch Hearts are on sale at Target and it doesn't get much sweeter than that.
Valentine's Day rivals Halloween as best holiday based on the grounds of copious candy consumption. Candy doesn't care about your relationship status. As far as candy is concerned on Feb. 14, it's nurturing a loving, committed relationship with everybody — single or coupled. Thankfully there's enough of Sour Patch Hearts to go around for all of us.
The sour then sweet treat is electric at first before settling into something a little more pleasant. And that first spark of sour always keeps you coming back for more. Which is great because each 10 oz package has enough to come back for again and again. The red and pink Sour Patch Hearts retail at $2.69 and can be picked up in store. It's always a good idea to call your local store ahead of time to make sure they're in stock!
For those of us with a sweet tooth, everything can be sugar coated. Thankfully the candy aisle at Target agrees. This Valentine's Day there are a lot of options to satisfy Sour Patch snacking. If you're heart isn't set on heart shaped Sour Patch, you can stick with the original kids, just packed into a heart shaped box for the lovely optics. The 8 oz Sour Patch Kids Valentine's Day Corrugate Heart retails for $4.99.
The chewy candy's brush with Cupid doesn't stop there. Sour Patch is really playing up its sweet side for Feb. 14. The Sour Patch Kids Valentine's Day Exchange Box, also retails for $4.99, contains 25 treat size bags of the candy. But what's more than that is the box also contains 4 cards to share with special Valentines. Talk about receiving a sweet little love letter. Kind words and candy are my favorite pairing.
Sour Patch isn't the only candy getting a Valentine's Day makeover. All of your favorite candies can be found at Target as the heart shaped versions of themselves. If chocolate is more your move, Dove's Pink Champagne & Milk Chocolate Swirl Hearts might be the perfect bag to cozy up to. There is zero judgement if you decide to exchange a Hershey's, Kit Kat and Reese's Valentine's Day Exchange Bag with your self. To: Me, Love: Me, is a 2019 mood.
It's as if Cupid curated the candy aisle himself this year. Every classic candy has magically transformed into a lovelier — who knew that was even possible — version of itself. The best part is, it doesn't matter if you're coupled or not. If Valentine's Day is about celebrating love, your love for candy counts as something to be shouted from the rooftops —with a mouth full of Sour Patch Hearts.
