Traditional Chocolates are Michigan’s Top Valentine’s Day Candy
What may seem boring to some is timeless to others. The heart-shaped box of chocolates is the most popular Valentine's Day candy in Michigan and across the country.
CandyStore.com says Americans will spend $2.4 Billion expressing their love with sweets to their sweet this Valentine's season- up $600 Million from last year. Valentine’s Day spending overall is expected to smash last year’s record by 32%. So, what are people buying?
Conversation hearts had been rising in popularity for years, and had finally overtaken those omnipresent heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, but that all changed last year when conversation hearts were absent from the market. The old stand-by again took the top spot. M&M's are trending upward nationally, while Cupid Corn is fading out...except in Michigan.
