Valentine’s Day is celebrated worldwide in hundreds of different ways and with a huge variety of traditions. From heart-shaped mandarins in South Korea to ‘love spoons’ in Wales and carved melons in China, everyone has a different way of expressing their love, both for family and partners.
However, a common known fact in both the UK and America is that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. What better way to express your love than presenting them with a selection of treats that are just as sweet as your partner? Have they experienced the cloudy strawberry goodness of pink Marshmallow Fluff or the deliciousness of a fresh Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake? Are they an Oreo fan who have never tried the alternative American flavours such as Cookie Butter, Apple Pie, Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha, Mint, lemon and loads more? Or are they a snack fiend who constantly craves Pringles, Snyders, beef jerky and popcorn?
If your partner is American, or loves to visit across the pond, ask them what American foods they miss most. You can then surprise them with their favourite American treat, without paying for flights to LA or New York!
We know that in America, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about your partner – it also celebrates the love for friends and family, more so than V-Day in the UK. If you’re looking to bring the American Valentine’s Day spirit back to the UK, we have so many typical treats to give away to your besties, or even to create some crafty yet delicious masterpieces with the kids!
