But if you are looking for something a little more special (but still affordable and above all, meaningful) for this holiday, why not take a look around your own hometown? Most areas have activities of some sort going on all year round, from evening skating to concerts and even vintage movie nights. Singles have their pick of the "mingle" events, and even if you aren't jumping into the dating pool (hear, hear!) its always fun to meet new friends and form networks with those nearby.
If you are attached, though, and you don't want to wait until the supper hour to turn up the aphrodisiac dial this V-Day, you're going to need some good quality energy. Luckily, I have just the thing for your tastebuds - a fruity, nutty, chocolate-laced snack mix that's not only gorgeous to look at and delicious to eat (or feed to your intended...) but is rich in the aphrodisiac-like vitamins and minerals as well as long-lasting energy that will help you keep up the romance well into the night.
