Now this is what we call romance.

We’re penciling in a Valentine’s Day date with these five new festive Hostess cakes, which will be available now until the end of February.

There’s Chocolate Covered Strawberry CupCakes (a pink, chocolate-frosted strawberry cake with crème filling), Red Velvet Donettes, I Heart U Cakes (heart-shaped chocolate cakes covered in a layer of chocolate with a vanilla crème filling), Pink SnoBalls and Dark Chocolate Covered Raspberry CupCakes.

These seem like the ideal treats to eat in front of a bad network rom-com, or to demand from your betrothed/lover/hook-up. Because why eat chocolate-covered strawberries when you could eat a cupcake version of chocolate-covered strawberries that doesn’t have fruit in it? Valentine’s Day is neither the time nor the place to be healthy.

It may only be mid-January, but brands are already announcing Valentine’s Day offerings. Starbucks has a portion of their secret menu devoted to pink V-day Frappuccinos, and M&Ms have announced a new strawberry shortcake flavor.

We’re starting to like this holiday.
