7 Must-Have Valentine's Day Treats From Some of Your Favorite Places
Valentine's Day is approaching and some of your favorite bakeries, cafes, and dessert shops have crafted adorable treats in celebration of the most romantic day of the year. From pink coffee drinks to heart-shaped ice cream cakes, here are seven different treats you must have this Valentine's Day.
Cinnabon: Heart-Shaped CinnaPacks
Cinnamon rolls are special on their own but package them in a heart container and they'll, without a doubt, elicit another kind of emotion from you. For a limited time only, you can either pick up a heart-shaped container of the MiniBon cinnamon rolls bites at Mall Cinnabon bakeries or head to your local Pilot Flying J to purchase the BonBites pack (even smaller cinnamon rolls) in a heart-shaped package. This Valentine's Day treat yourself and your lover, best friend, or mom to an ooey-gooey breakfast.
Price: Starts at $9.99
Baskin-Robbins: Valentine's Day Card Cakes
Why write out a heartfelt card that will likely be recycled (sorry to say it, but we're all guilty here) when you can have gift the one you love most with an entire cake? This month, Baskin-Robbins is offering five different Valentine's Day Card Cake designs, all of which are able to be customized with the ice cream flavor of your choice. The real icing on the cake, though? You can shave off a couple of bucks by ordering ahead of time online or through the Baskin-Robbins mobile app. Type in the promo code BEMINE at checkout and you'll get $3 taken off of cake purchases priced at $15 or more.
Price: Starts at $16.99
Einstein Bros. Bagels: Heart-Shaped Bagels
Start off the most romantic day of the year with a heart-shaped bagel from Einstein Bros. Bagels. Customers can call ahead right now and pre-order a half-dozen or baker's dozen of either plain, chocolate chip, or cinnamon raisin of these tender-hearted bagels. Your special order will be available for pickup right on Valentine's Day. Bagel Friday at the office, anyone?
Price: Starts at $1.49 for a single bagel, $11.99 for half-dozen, $15.79 for baker's dozen
Carvel: Chocolate Decadence Heart Cake
Because we cannot get enough of heart-shaped goodies, we had to include Carvel's Valentine's Day special: the Chocolate Decadence Heart Cake. The cake is layered with chocolate ice cream, Carvel's famous crunchies (you know the kind), and vanilla ice cream. The whole cake is then topped with fudge and garnished with even more crunchies. If you want something special written on the cake (proposal idea, anyone?) you can call ahead and have the message customized. Carvel is also selling little ice cream-filled chocolate conversation hearts that fit right in the palm of your hand.
Price: Chocolate Decadence Heart Cake, $19.99. Lil's Hearts four-pack is $9.99 and a six-pack is $12.99.
Edible Arrangements: Love on Fire Box
If you're someone who can handle the heat, you're bound to fall head over heels for this special chocolate treat. Meet the Edible Arrangements Love on Fire Box, which contains chocolate-covered strawberries that are sprinkled with spicy Ghost Pepper flakes. Available on Feb. 10, you can pick up a box of these flaming hot strawberries for the person in your life who gets a thrill from eating spicy foods.
Price: Starting at $19.99
Krispy Kreme: Conversation Heart Donuts
Krispy Kreme's Conversation Heart Donuts are back again this year, available now until Valentine's Day. With 24 sweet little messages stamped on the top of each donut, it's almost essential that you order two dozen boxes so that you have a greater chance of seeing all of the messages, from "Kiss Me" to "Bae" and everything that falls in between.
Price: Varies by location.
Dunkin Donuts: Pink Velvet Macchiato
For the avid coffee drinker, Dunkin' Donuts is offering two special drinks: the Pink Velvet Macchiato and the Pink Velvet Signature Latte. The macchiato combines espresso with red velvet cake and cream cheese icing flavors and, if you order it iced, it makes for an Instagram-worthy picture. The mocha on the other hand also includes espresso and red velvet cake flavor but is topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle, and hot chocolate powder.
Price: Varies by location.
