Valentine’s Day is steadily sneaking around the corner, with just 3 short weeks until we celebrate “I love you” by way of something extra sweet. Valentine cards were very popular in the Victorian era and Hallmark started selling them in 1913
Giving a heart-shaped box of chocolates is a tradition, like much of the history of Valentine’s Day, has roots in the distant past. Several ancient cultures, including the Aztecs, considered chocolate an aphrodisiac. That, combined with the relative scarcity of sugar, made chocolate a popular gift to symbolize love and devotion.
In the early 1900’s, Cadbury created a heart-shaped box for its chocolates. To this day, Valentine’s Day chocolates are the No. 1 most popular gift during the holiday.
