Have A Heart

Sometimes I think mainstream candy isn't  really trying to come up with new holiday twists. When I started buying Valentine's Day candy last November, my camera bag was stuffed with Valentine Jujyfruits, Sweetarts Hearts Gummies, and Heart Shaped Junior Mints.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
And speaking of Seinfeld, is it a coincidence that two out of three of those candies are featured in Seinfeld episode where someone's in the hospital?
Although the chocolate is still amicably dark, some of the peppermint glops are red, and the pieces are significantly larger than classic Junior Mints. The hefty hearts goo over generously and linger on your taste buds a trickle longer too. I love how easily you can melt each heart with your tongue.
The oft forgotten (by me) Junior Mints may have a more imaginative and delicious holiday offspring in Junior Mints Peppermint Crunch, but the classically cool flavor and pleasant weight of each heart is a happy Valentine's Day nosh.
