Sci doesn't celebrate Valentine's Day much. Rather, I celebrate the day POST-Valentine's when all the candy becomes a delicious 50-75% off.
But this has become harder since I moved to a large city. In the suburbs, buying cheap candy was a breeze. Huge grocery stores were overstocked with the stuff and desperate to move merchandise. You had your pick of all the delicious sales.
But the city is another story. The small local markets and chains (usually pharmacies) can't have as much stock, and even the evening of Valentine's day it looked like a tornado had gone through. Nothing was on sale because nothing NEEDED to be on sale. Disappointing to say the least. I noticed that in particular, Reese's and peanut butter M&Ms were not on sale, and still completely sold out. We know what's popular, and what's popular is peanut butter and chocolate.
Still, by superior effort at several stores I managed a respectable haul.
You can see that the bars were on sale, a Cadbury sale in the US should never be passed up. I also obtained some Nestle, Dove, Ghiradelli, Lindt, and a few boxes of truffles. Not too bad, but nothing like the awesomeness that was the suburb chocolate sale. So if you are in suburbs, go NOW! You may even find a deal on Reese's. Sweet, sweet Reese's.
