Forget romantic, candlelit dinners, bouquets of roses and pink stuffed animals. Everyone knows that Valentine’s Day is really all about the candy.

Luckily, M&M’s understands the importance of surrounding oneself with sweets on February 14.

White Strawberry Shortcake — which features holiday-appropriate white, pink and creme colored shells and promises a “light, Starburst-like Strawberry sweetness,” according to The Impulsive Buy — is technically meant to be one of the company’s limited-edition Easter flavors, but it already available on shelves at Targets everywhere.

Don’t worry, you’re not the only one experiencing an overwhelming feeling of love for M&M’s right now.

White Strawberry Shortcake is the latest in a long line of seasonal flavors that M&M’s has released, including white peppermintpecan pie, and the queen of fall foods pumpkin spice latte.

But that’s not all: Listings on eBay have also promised a second Valentine’s Day flavor, Strawberry Chocolate, which will be available exclusively at Walmart.

So this February, instead of spending your entire paycheck on dinner and champagne, give your Valentine the gift they’re really hoping for: all of the M&M’s they can eat.

Oh good. This gives me an excuse to finally throw away the bag of Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s that my coworkers wouldn’t touch. Hope these fare better.

For the curious soul, we reviewed all the new seasonal M&M’s including Strawberry, White Strawberry Shortcake, and Cherry! We enjoyed all three, too… http://junkbanter.com/mms/

The way I see it, the gaming scene pretty much divides into PC gaming and console gaming. PC games take you away from your real life miseries and give you complete peace of mind. Not only, the traditional games but the table games have also been fascinating mankind for years on end.
