Box of chocolate, candy hearts, Hersey kisses, Valentine’s Day is truly all about the delicious sweet treats. But why?
It all originated with girls of medieval times. They used to eat bizarre foods on St. Valentine’s Day to try and make them dream of their future husband. I guess a deep sugar fueled dream might do that? Ha ha.
Then a man named Richard Cadbury (love those eggs Richard!) invented the first ever Valentines Day candy box in the late 1800s. This was the first time candy was used as a celebration around the holiday and its been that way ever since.
Now I’m REALLY craving some chocolate.
