Celebrate the Season of Love with These Seasonal Snacks

Love is in the air this February. Whether you spent Valentine's Day with a significant other or watched rom-coms fantasizing about your ideal V-Day date, there’s plenty of seasonal goodies that everyone will love. Here are five sweet treats that you’ll fall in love with.

  1. 1. Pink Velvet Macchiato from Dunkin

    Dunkin just revealed a whole slew of Valentine’s Day-themed specials and there’s one drink stands out from the rest: the Pink Velvet Macchiato. Featuring a fusion of espresso and red velvet cake flavor, that creates an Instagram-worthy look, this macchiato is not your typical macchiato. Try one for yourself (and snap a picture of two) at select Dunkin locations.

  2. 2. Cherry Mocha from Starbucks

    While not as anticipated as its seasonal drink siblings like the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte and Peppermint Mocha, Starbucks’ Cherry Mocha is still worth a shot. This limited-edition twist on the mocha takes after the taste of chocolate-covered cherries and is topped off with whipped cream and special cocoa Valentine sprinkles. Get your caffeine fix with this lovely drink on your next Starbucks run.

  3. 3. Strawberry Drink Specials from Gongcha

    Calling all strawberry lovers! The bubble tea chain Gongcha now has strawberry drinks made exclusively for the season of love including Strawberry Yogurt, Strawberry Milk Slush, and Milk Foam Strawberry Chocolate. What’s more, each of these drinks come with the option of adding strawberry pearls for free! Step out of your comfort zone and give one of these strawberry specials a try before they’re sold out!

  4. 4. Calling Card Donuts from Krispy Kreme

    Who needs crumbly conversation hearts when you can get these adorable and delicious heart-shaped doughnuts from Krispy Kreme? The doughnuts not only have a range of Valentine’s Day-themed messages, but they are also filled with different mouth-watering fillings like Cake Batter and Strawberries and Kreme. Get a dozen for your sweetheart or for yourself (we won’t judge) at participating Krispy Kreme locations.

  5. 5. Fudge Truffle Decadence from Cold Stone Creamery

    Who said ice cream cakes are only for birthdays? Known for its loaded ice creams and ice cream cakes, Cold Stone just introduced the Fudge Truffle Decadence. The drool-worthy frozen treat has layers of red velvet and scrumptious ice cream with chocolate shavings drenched in rich chocolate ganache. Pick one up to share with a fellow chocolate lover at your local Cold Stone.

These decadent treats are proof that Valentine’s Day isn’t just for the cuffed. Treat yourself to one or all of these mouthwatering items!
