Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and you know what that means … time for lots and lots of candy. While your first thought when it comes to Valentine’s Day candy might be a giant heart-shaped box of chocolates, there’s a lot more to choose from than that.
From special Skittles flavors to pink raspberry creme mini Kit-Kats, the choices for Valentine’s Day sweet treats are already pretty endless. Now, Starburst is bringing back its own love-themed candies for another year: heart-shaped jelly beans.
The jelly beans are, of course, pink and red, and if you’ve always been picky about your Starburst flavors, you may be happy to know that these are limited to just the strawberry and cherry flavors. We can see these being a tasty treat on their own or a cute decoration atop frosted Valentine’s Day cookies or cupcakes.
Heart-shaped Starburst jelly beans are available now at Target for around $2.99 per 11-ounce bag, though they likely won’t be sticking around too long after Valentine’s Day, so make sure you grab a bag before Feb. 14.
The good news is that even after these jelly beans disappear until next Valentine’s Day, you can still get your hands on just pink and red Starbursts year-round. These unwrapped mini FaveREDS packs come with just strawberry, cherry, fruit punch and watermelon flavors — so no more setting aside the yellow ones to hand out for Halloween!
For a different kind of Valentine’s Day treat, Target is also selling adorable heart-shaped strawberries-and-cream hot cocoa bombs. The rose-hued hearts contain mini marshmallows that will appear once you place the heart inside a mug and pour warm milk over it, melting the pink chocolate shell.
Doesn’t it look magical? The little cocoa bombs are available from Target for $2.99.
