Here Are The Top Valentine’s Candies Of Each New England State
With Valentine's Day just four days away, we'll have yet another reason to indulge in our favorite sweet and sugary treats. But just what are our favorite Valentine's candies, specifically here in New England?
The website CandyStore.com set out to show us just that. They analyzed their own bulk candy sales from the past twelve years, as well as data from their industry partners, to show us exactly which Valentine's candy is the most popular in each state. The results are in, and here are each of the six New England states' favorite Valentine's candies:
Maine: Chocolate Hearts
New Hampshire: Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates
Vermont: Conversation Hearts
Massachusetts: Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates
Connecticut: Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates
Rhode Island: Chocolate Hearts
Should I be embarrassed about the fact that I don't believe I've actually ever had Chocolate Hearts? Sounds pretty generic to me. Although I will say that I love a nice hear-shaped box of chocolates, and I think they make for a great Valentine's gift.
Also, what's up with Vermont's choice of conversation hearts? I mean yeah, they were ok when I was a kid...but why would I ever want to eat those as an adult? I guess I'm just not really into eating chalk. But to each their own, right?
