  • 5 Valentine’s Day Sweets to Try this Year

    Save the date, it's Valentine's Day in 5 days! There's not long to go at all to grab all those roses, and chocolates, and cards, and all manner of gifts for the one close to your heart.

    Being the last weekend before Valentine's, here's a quick showcase of our top gift ideas for those with a sweet tooth. After all, it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without a bit of sweetness to it, right?



    Starting off with a classic, this much-loved chocolate selection has been around since 1915 and is still going strong today! Definitely a national favourite, Cadbury Milk Tray is the perfect gift or sweet treat to go with a nice movie and a cuddle on the sofa.

    Housing a great selection of delicious Cadbury milk chocolates, you can always count on Cadbury for quality milky taste sensations.



    Why not gift someone a box of delicious indulgence this Valentine's Day with this wonderful Thorntons Classic Collection? Coming from Thorntons, the same company that has been providing the nation with delightful chocolates since 1911, this is a box of mouth-watering, tasty goodness is absolutely perfect.

    Lovingly created to include milk, dark, and white chocolates, this is truly one for any chocolate-lover!



    With the inclusion of divine truffles and delectable pralines, why not check out this lovely collection of the nation's favourite Thorntons chocolates? The Continental Collection is a great way to show your love to that special someone close to your heart.

    Take a trip through chocolate and experience Alpine praline, Vienesse truffles, Seville caramel, and other delightful wonders that all await in this fantastic journey through taste.



    Another classic; Maltesers are surely the go-to chocolate for gifts of all sorts. So why would Valentine's Day be any different? With a sealable box, this great, delicious, and oh-so-creamy little treat is well-loved, and for good reason.

    Made using Fairtrade chocolate, the unmistakable crunchiness won't disturb you as you relax whilst watching Netflix, all huddled together.  It's great for sharing between lovers (but then again, maybe not?!).



    Though, it's not all about chocolate! Sometimes you need something as deliciously sweet as Swizzels Love Hearts and is a great gift for those who might not want any chocolate this year on Valentine's Day.

    Sometimes words printed on delightfully classic sweets can mean a lot more than anything spoken. So, this gift tube of Love Hearts can become a quirky and adorable present for one close to your heart.
