Our favorite candy swoops in when we just don't have the right words.

Another holiday filled with sweet treats is rapidly approaching. Valentine's Day is a chance for us to show someone how much we love them, but also indulge in foods that maybe aren't on the menu regularly. I'm talking decadent steaks, decadent wine, and rich chocolate. Of course, candy is also a big part of this day of love.

Which is your favorite?

I'm a choco-holic and will very seldom refuse it's velvety-smooth, melt-in-your-mouth, culinary serenade. However, there are other sugary morsels to enjoy on this fine holiday. In fact, Louisiana's favorite candy isn't chocolate at all.

CandyStore.com recently published a map of all of the favorite Valentine's Day candies broken down by state. For us in Louisiana, we are loading up on the conversation hearts. This confection is just like a Necco wafer. Some let if slowly melt on their tongue while others prefer to crunch away. Each is flavored like a fruit. My personal favorite are the purple ones.

Do you agree with the Candy Store's map?
