Walmart's Candy Bouquets Are the Ultimate Valentine's Day Gift
Now you don’t have to choose between flowers and chocolate.
Torn between whether to get your sweetheart a bouquet of flowers (tasteful and pretty!) or a box of chocolate (pretty darn tasty!) for Valentine’s Day?
Here’s a solution that involves the best of both but is not, thank goodness, double the expense: candy bouquets.
Walmart is selling giant bouquets made out of candy this Valentine’s Day and they’re perfect for those who want to have their romantic gesture and eat it, too.
Priced in the $33 to $69 range, they’ll set you back only about as much as a nice bouquet of flowers would — and just like flowers, you can order them online and have them delivered to your sweet babboo.
There are a startling number of options, too — one for every sort of relationship.

If you and your partner are complementary — as perfect a match as peanut butter and chocolate, perhaps — you might want to send them this bad boy. The 36 delectable peanut butter cups in the bouquet are real; the coordinating flowers tucked around them are faux, but make for an arresting orange visual.

Is your partner a baseball fan? "Hit a home run with the All Baby Ruth Candy Bouquet," Walmart encourages. And this bouquet of mini candy bars supported by a basket made of full-size treats, topped with a bow and wrapped in cellophane, would also be a great choice for new parents, when it's all baby, all the time.

Do you love your favorite nerd enough to send them a Nerd Candy Bouquet? It features a lot of other kinds of candy, too. We see Snickers, Milky Way and Twix bars — and AirHeads and Hubba Bubba bubblegum. Hubba Bubba? Hubba hubba!

Here's a perfect gift for someone you maybe want to get to know a bit better. A wide variety of candy — Ice Breakers among them — seems like a great way to metaphorically break the ice. And the keepsake pail the bouquet comes in would work for holding any literal ice you might have around, too.

Great for KitKat lovers. Great for cat lovers. Great for a special someone who needs a break. "Gimme a break, gimme a break, and break me off the Kit Kat Candy Bouquet!" Walmart trumpets. Plus, as of this writing the large size (6 large Kit Kat bars and 23 fun-size Kit Kat bars) is only a few bucks more than the medium size (4 large bars and 12 fun-size bars), so you can look like one generous cat and catch a break yourself.
You can also find candy bouquets featuring M&Ms (a mix of plain and peanut), Twix, Twizzlers, Skittles, Smarties, Nestle Crunch, Almond Joy and several varieties of Ferrero Rocher (Roses Are Red and Pink Rose look especially romantic), among many other options.
Valentine’s Day bouquets have never seemed so sweet.
