Still didn’t snag something for your sweetie? Don’t sweat it. The gals over at Ooh La La Candy (oohlalacandy.com) hooked us up with some tricks for picking the perf candy for all your valentines. So hit the drugstore (or, heck, even 7-Eleven) and dig into their sugary selections. Plus, find out the one V-Day classic you should totally avoid buying for your boy. Keep reading for the sweet rundown.
GL: OK, what kind of candies do guys heart the most?
Rebecca from Ooh La La:
Most guys will prefer a chocolate candy, preferably with caramel, peanuts or peanut butter. Think: Snickers, Twix, Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cup, and Butterfingers. As for non-chocolates, you can never go wrong with the classics like Mike & Ike's, and Swedish Fish. As for conversation hearts, although they are adorable, your man does not want to eat them.
Candy hearts are a flirty fave, but you can never go wrong with chocolate.
GL: Do you have any tips for picking the right sweets for friends?
Rebecca: Milk Chocolate is a great choice because, let's be honest, everyone enjoys a piece of chocolate. As for non-chocolate, I would either go with something gummy and/or something sour. Personal Favorites: Sour Watermelons and Haribo Gummy Bears.
Pucker up! Sour candies are fab for friends.
GL: Any tips for girls who are putting together their own Valentine’s Day packages?
I recommend using either a clear acetate box or anything with a window so the main focus is on the delectable delights inside. Candy speaks for itself, so less is always more when it comes to candy packaging. (Ed note: Phew!)
