Valentine's Day is certainly big on candy, isn't it? From about 6 different types of conversation hearts (there only used to be one type!), to 10 different flavors of the Hershey's Kiss, we certainly have perfected the art of Valentine's Candy. You can even get M&M's in about any color you want now - including the ever popular pink. Love that! Of course they also come in dark chocolate, peanut butter filled, almond filled, etc. We are the land of options, now aren't we?
So, is Valentine's Day the biggest holiday for candy sales in the United States? Well, you would think maybe it is, with all of the velvet-covered boxes of chocolate being purchased to say "I love you" - but in fact, it's not. Truth be told, Valentine's Day only ranks 4th in candy sales overall! Can you believe that?
So, which holiday is considered the biggest sugar-saturated holiday and leads the pack with the most candy sales? Can you guess which one it is? Guess correctly and your name will be thrown into our random name picker (ie, our random number generator) to win a box full of goodies - including about 8 different types of Valentine's Day candy (to celebrate our theme this week), a skein of some of my favorite sock yarn, and a set of knitting cards made by yours truly!
Best of luck! The winner will be announced this Friday!
Also on Friday I'll have some news about our Sunday shop updates along with some fun extras, so we hope to see you back then!
