Valentine’s Day is full of love, and heart shaped food is often the star of the table. While the idea might be a little cliché, it is the easiest way to say I love you. Even though dessert seems like the most obvious choice, it isn’t the only heart shaped food on the table. With a little culinary creativity, love and deliciousness is a feast for everyone.
Luckily, many companies have made it easy to put your heart on a plate. Why not start the day with some donuts. Krispy Kreme has its Valentine’s Day donut connection. A dozen of Dough Notes could be the tasty way to start the day.
Dunkin has joined the heart shaped fun, too. Why not pair that Cupid’s Choice heart shaped doughnut with the pink-colored coffees for the celebration. Isn’t it better to see the world through rose colored confections?
If you prefer a little less sweet start to the day, why not pour a bowl of Cheerios. The heart shaped Cheerios are back for a limited time. This heart shaped cereal is good for your heart, too.
