The best part about Valentine’s Day does not actually occur on February 14th. Rather, it begins on February 15th and continues for a couple days after that. Of course, I’m talking about discounted candy. For those who may not receive all the heart shaped chocolates and candy that they had hoped for, they can take solace in the fact that they can purchase these for themselves for fairly cheap once the holiday is over.
If anyone is still interested in buying discounted Valentine’s Day candy, there is still plenty of it out there. At Dollarama, most of the Valentine’s candy is now 3 for $1. These include heart shaped chocolates, cinnamon hearts, lollipops, and cookies. There are also some nice gourmet cookies on sale at Winners. London Drugs, Save On Foods, Safeway, and Shoppers Drug Mart are also worth checking out for their discounts.
Now that Valentine’s day is over, the stores have stocked their shelves with Easter candy. Full price Easter candy. So naturally, I plan to wait until the day after Easter before I buy any. Which will be April 1st. Which is April Fool’s Day. But discounted candy is certainly no joke.
