Contenders for top Valentines treats
              
If you love candy for Valentine's Day-- and who doesn't? -- then here are some super sweet facts about the treat.  In the U.S., lovers spend $448 million on candy, buying 58 million pounds of chocolate.
              
Conversation hearts are by far the most popular candy for Valentine's Day.  And they have changed with the times.  It's not just messages like Be True or Love You.  These days you are bound to find messages like Tweet Me or Text Me, along with the more challenging Dare You.
              
Hershey's Kisses are also in the running for the most popular Valentine candy.  Hershey makes 60 million of these tidbits every single day.  But for Valentine's Day, the company pumps out 750 million, according to Time Magazine.  By the way, Hershey's produces enough Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in one year to feed one to every person in the U.S., Japan, Europe, Australia, China, Africa, and India.
              
Always in the running for the most popular Valentine gift are the ubiquitous heart-shaped boxes of chocolates.  In the U.S., buyers snag 40 million heart-shaped boxes every Valentine's Day.  Caramels are the most popular.  Ghirardelli gift boxes also make the cut in the top two favorites across the country.
 
New candies are also in the running.  In Minnesota, Louisiana and Virginia, among others, Cupid Corn is in the running for the most popular Valentine candy, ranking about second or third.  You might be asking yourself, ‘What is Cupid Corn’?  But you already have tasted it: It's regular Halloween candy corn -- only it’s colored red and pink.  Another surprise contender is Wild Berry Skittles.  The chewy confection comes in all the right colors.
