What lollies should you buy this Valentine’s Day?

Only a little bit longer until the most romantic day of the year!

What do your Valentine’s Day plans involve?

Whether it’s a candlelit dinner, breaking out those guitar skills to serenade your S/O, flowers, or a care package filled to the top with chocolate hearts, Australia is in the mood for love.

And it’s also in the mood for lollies as well!

You can’t say “Valentine’s” without saying “lollies.”

And we aren’t just talking about chocolate hearts in bulk, either!

What is the true story of Valentine?

Have you ever wondered how Valentine’s Day got its name?

It’s not something an awful lot of people know – in fact, it’s surprisingly dark!

it goes all the way back in ancient times… and it did not start so sweetly.

In fact, we don’t even know the exact story – according to historians, there are actually three historical figures named Valentine who might be the one we’re looking for.

The most commonly seen narrative however is that Valentine was a priest who carried out secret (and illegal) weddings for Roman couples, saving the now-husbands from being drafted to take part in Rome’s wars of conquest.

Naturally, you can see where the association with love and romance come from!

Why do we give candy on Valentine’s Day?

While the story doesn’t end well for Valentine himself (any of the three candidates – two were executed and the fate of the third is a mystery), you can at least see where the association with love and romance come from!

What’s a little more inexplicable is the link to lollies – and to chocolates, specifically. Where did that come from?

People like giving gifts

And what better gift to give than the gift of lollies?

Giving gifts feels good, especially when it’s to the love of your life.

The great thing about lollies and chocolates is that they’re a sure hit with virtually anyone, making them an extremely safe bet for Valentine’s Day and other romantic occasions.

As such, it’s little wonder that chocolates and lollies are up there with roses and red wine as one of the staples of Valentine’s Day.

There’s a sweet connection between love and lollies

There’s a huge range of different chocolates and lollies out there, including many that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Case-in-point: gold foil wrapped chocolate hearts. They’re heart-shaped and wrapped in shiny gold foil – they’re absolutely perfect for the job.

Not to mention, chocolates are an aphrodisiac – just another reason why they’re so good!

It used to be a sign of wealth

It might not sound like it today, but there was one point where eating chocolate was a sign of great wealth!

Think about it – transporting cocoa beans across the Atlantic to Europe is costly and time-consuming – naturally, only the wealthy could afford it once it arrived.

That made chocolate a luxury item – as well as a great gift idea!

While chocolate prices have (thankfully) dropped since then, its association with Valentine’s Day (and romance in general) have stuck around.
