    I was thinking it would be fun to take a poll of everyones favorite Valentines candy.
    I'll start. I have two because I can't decide which if my all time favorite.
    I like the conversational hearts because you can use them to create goofy sentences and they are yummy.
    My other favorite is the cinnamon hearts.. they warm the spirit :D

    I like dark chocolate hearts with raspberry jellies inside. I used to get them in a candy shop on my college campus, but no brand name was attached to them and I've been unable to find them since. So I guess the closest thing would be Joyva ring jells, though they are not Valentine candies.

    A good romantic man could wipe the thought of chocolates right out of my mind, however.

    I have this receipe for this choclate cake that starts as the icing and then you take part of it and make it into the cake. ummmm, haven't had it in years.

    not much on candy- but a good chocolate cake- I'm there. Of course, I don't like icing, I peel it off and leave it for someone else.

    Oh- when we were growing up- Mom made meatloaf and put a ketchup heart on top. My favorite Valentine's meal- I do it for my kids.

    Conversation hearts. I love that taste. Not the new ones that are sour though.

    You bet, I'm a mellowcremes fan, too!

    And I agree about the chocolate cake, love that!

    Okay, everyone, what's your idea of a romatic Valentine's Day dinner?

    The thing that comes to my mind is lasagna with the right wine or chianti, though I'm not fond of wine and would probably choose something else to eat...

    I really like carmels that are covered with chocolate. I used to always try to find them in the sampler boxes from See's that my great aunts always gave our family at Christmas. It has been years since I had any. But fond memories of using the map on the box as to which little section had my favorite.

    Favorite food: would have to be a good bottle of wine in front of a nice warm fire!

    I love red hots, and red jelly beans any time of year, more than chocolate anythings.
