What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Whether they include candy, food, flowers or fun, Price Chopper has everything you need for the day of love!
We’re making dessert for you too with our 5’’ Central Market Classics “Be Mine” Decadent Cake. If you want something sweet and homemade, try this recipe for chocolate truffles.
How about making a special Surf ‘n Turf dinner with your special someone? We’ve got 4 oz. stuffed lobster tails filled with Real Phillips Crab meat in stores now and check out our recipe for Pepper Herb Crusted Beef Tenderloin. Or, if you’re going out to eat, pick up a gift card to your restaurant of choice before you leave so you can earn Fuel AdvantEdge points while you eat!
For flowers, go to Price Chopper’s Central Market Florist for our “Heart Throb” singing bouquet or our “Light Up My Life” fiberoptic bouquet. If you can’t make it to a store, you can order flowers from wherever you are at myfloralplace.com.
While you are deciding how to spend your day, here are some Valentine’s Day facts to enhance your day of romance:
1. There are 141 million Valentine’s Day cards exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second-most popular greeting-card-giving occasion. When Valentine’s cards given by students are included, that number goes up to 1 billion.
2. In addition to the United States, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia.
3. The first commercial Valentine’s Day greeting cards produced in the U.S. were created in the 1840s by Esther A. Howland. Howland, known as the Mother of the Valentine, made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as “scrap.”
4. Valentine’s Day is a procrastinator’s holiday: In the US, 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine’s Day with their sweethearts. (If you’re making last minute plans, head to Price Chopper for all your essentials!)
5. The internet is a place to show affection: An estimated 15 million e-valentines were sent in 2010.
