Sweets & Treats for Valentine's Day

I'm sure one of the first things that comes to your mind when you think about Valentine's Day is candy. It's just something that's been programmed into all of our brains starting back when we were kids and exchanged little cards and sweets with our classmates. Fast forward to adulthood and we are still exchanging cards and sweets, but now with our partners and kids. My weekness when it comes to sweets has always been caramel. You give me anything with caramel in it and I'm game for trying it. And that's exactly what I said when I was offered these fun Caramels from McCrea's Candies. And boy was I glad because they are all AMAZING!

McCrea’s makes 15 flavors of luxe caramel for the gifting market. Think Black Lava Sea Salt, Rosemary Truffle, Cinnamon Clove, Single Malt Scotch, Deep Chocolate and more paired up with caramel!  Made from 100% real-food ingredients and packaged in beautiful biodegradable containers, McCrea’s Candies are an ideal present for any caramel lover on your Valentine's Day list.

If you're like me you'd rather spend an evening in with your sweetheart than go out to a busy restaurant. And that's where this awesome line-up from Tuscanini would make the perfect inclusion in your Valentine's Day celebration. These gourmet products will bring the tastes and smells of Italy right to your table. I mean what better meal could you have than an Italian themed one right?

Tuscanini Foods rolled out a new lineup of gourmet food products that bring the taste of Italy to your table for a truly authentic Italian dining experience. This superior brand of foods is imported from Italy, famously identified for its traditions and age-old recipes. From the mountainous Dolomite region to the idyllic Sardinia Island, products are sourced from artisans that specialize in offering only the best quality ingredients.

If a sweet and flavorful cup of coffee is on your list of things you "must have" every day. You'll love starting your day off with JAVAMELTS. JAVAMELTS are individually wrapped flavored sweeteners made with real sugar for coffee, tea, cappuccino and espresso. JAVAMELTS come in four delicious gourmet flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, French Vanilla and Mocha.  They are also only 20 calories each, certified gluten free and make an ordinary cup of black coffee or tea taste special and delicious. A definite must have if you're planning a get away for Valentine's Day when you or your sweetie have to have that perfect cup of coffee to start your day off right! I've tried all four JAVAMELTS flavors and have to say my favorite is the French Vanilla closely followed by the caramel. My husband on the other hand loved the hazelnut. So I guess they truly have "something for everyone".

Speaking of having "something for everyone". Nui has that something for those out there with a keto/low carb lifestyle living companion. They are decadent cookies that contain less than two grams of sugar, which is naturally found in nuts. You could eat a whole box of 16 Nui cookies and still consume less sugar than one traditional cookie. (Not that I would recommend that.) The cookies are low carb, gluten free, and keto friendly. They come in five flavors: Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Ginger Something. Each package has two cookies inside which to me is just enough for a sweet treat now and then. I have to say after trying a recipe for low carb cookies myself I didn't have very high expectations for these cookies. But after trying them I will admit I was wrong. They are nothing like what I expected... Nui cookies are actually really good! Especially the chocolate chip ones. If you're used to using natural sweeteners in your foods (vs. white sugar which tastes much different) like those of us following a low carb lifestyle you'll enjoy these. If you're not used to them it's hard to say. My daughter wasn't really fond of them, but my husband said they were good to him. That was totally okay with me though, it just meant I didn't have to hide them from both her and her dad!
