This Valentine’s Day, consumers are expected to spend $1.8 billion on candy. 

Valentine’s Day is about love, romance, and spending money, and a lot of it. According to the National Retail Federation, consumers are expected to spend more than $1.8 billion on candy this year alone. 

That’s a lot of chocolate -- or is it? Apparently, conversation hearts are America’s new favorite. According to CandyStore.com, conversation hearts topped the charts for two consecutive years, ultimately beating the reigning champion of Valentine’s Day candy – the heart-shaped box of chocolate.
