The Cutest Heart-Shaped Foods for Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you may be scratching your head wondering what you’re going to give your special someone. Yes, you could give your Valentine jewelry or roses, but those tend to break the bank or wreak of unoriginality. 

Give your Valentine the gift that leads right to their heart: give them the gift of food this Valentine’s Day. This isn’t any ordinary food item, it's food shaped in a heart. Chick-fil-A, Krispy Kreme, California Pizza Kitchen, and Auntie Anne’s are all getting in the lovey-dovey spirit with special edition entrees and desserts for your boo. These are some ways to say "I love you" with food this Valentine’s Day. And if you’re lucky, maybe they’ll share with you.  

1. Chick-fil-A Heart-Shaped Nuggets

Come by your local Chick-fil-A now until February 28th to pick up some chicken nuggets, cookies, and Chick-n-Minis in heart-shaped containers. Chick-fil-A has you covered with beautiful presentation and content inside that will have you and your bae’s mouths watering. This is a gift that you can enjoy before and after Valentine’s day, so you two can celebrate for days. Just don’t go on a Sunday. The nuggets come in a 30-count, Chick-n-Minis in a 10-count, and Chocolate Chunk cookies in a 6-count. Nuggets are the new red roses and nothing says ‘I love you’ like nuggets!
