The conversation I’d like to have is about why there are so many damn conversation hearts. Conversation hearts are the candy corn of Valentine’s Day. (Spotted by Rachel C at WinCo Foods and Target.)

  1. I like candy corn, and don’t think they should be lumped in with conversation hearts. The conversation hearts are the valentines equivalent of peanut butter kisses at Halloween. Those things annoy me.

  2. Conversation hearts are disgusting!! Chalky and nasty. I remember Branch’s came out with a gum that shaped like conversation hearts and it was nasty. Even the dessert flavored sounds good but I’m guessing it will be nasty. Good thing you can get cheap good candies on clearance after valentine’s day

  3. Is the Dark & Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Strawberry the exact same chocolates with different names?

    Someone should buy both and sample them. I would myself but I have a tendency to gorge on stuff like this so I don’t even buy them.
