I made my bi-monthly trek to Target and encountered a staggering amount and variety of Disney-themed Valentine merchandise. Not surprisingly, a fair amount of Mickey and princess goodies graced the shelves. Very surprisingly, the Mickey and princess treats were far outnumbered by Star Wars Valentine candy. Apparently residents of a galaxy far, far away have quite the sweet tooth. Who knew?
Here a photo tour of what I found in the seasonal Valentine shop:
Star Wars Valentine’s Day Goodies
Goblet mugs filled with Star Wars conversation hearts. Chewie needs me, I know he does.
R2 and Darth heart-shaped boxes, filled with conversation hearts.
Take a close look at the back of the R2 heart box and you’ll see that the “conversations” appear to be somewhat Star Wars related.
The ones I can make out say, “Mine will U B,” (like Yoda texting?) and “Luv Machine.” Machine! Get it! I need to find out who makes this stuff and steal their job because it is awesome beyond belief.
Yoda and Vader heart box chocolates.
Sound making dispensers filled with candy. I guess Darth is red because he’s filled with Valentine love.
A Star Wars, Lego, M&M candy dispenser mashup. So very many lawyers needed to be consulted to make this happen
Star Wars Pez. Not sure what this has to do with Valentines Day, but it was right there next to the heart-shaped stuff.
Metal box filled with chocolate hearts. Anyone else think the Vader face looks a bit like Han in the Carbonite?
Vader candy dispenser with light-up candy lightsabers. Seriously, I want a job coming up with this stuff.
Disney Character Valentine’s Day Goodies
Car and crown shaped pretzels for those folks that choose not to distribute candy. What is wrong with you people?
Princess Pez dispensers. Cindy and Aurora are shown here. Tiana was also available.
Mickey JuJu Hearts.
Mickey Milk Chocolate Hearts.
Mickey Mugs filled with Chocolate Hearts.
The Perfect Valentine’s Day Activity…
And at the end cap … Disney movies displayed with buckets of M&Ms and popcorn. Sounds like a perfect Valentine’s Day to me!
Happy Valentine’s Day…early!
Will you be buying any of these treats for your loved ones this Valentines Day? Keep us in the loop!
