Valentine's Day is right around the corner - and when love is in the air, that means chocolates, champagne, and roses are hitting the shelves at Whole Foods. On Friday, I popped into the Whole Foods Market in Tysons Corner to check out their Valentine's Day specials, flower arrangements, and choose my top picks for Valentine's Day!
Who doesn't want roses on Valentine's Day? If you're looking to buy for your significant other -- or maybe even just to spoil yourself -- their Whole Trade roses are gorgeous!
My top picks for Red Roses:
Pick #1: Premium Long Step Roses with the Deluxe Upgrade ($34.99). The arrangement comes with a dozen gorgeous premium, long stem Whole Trade roses, wrapped with an extravagant sheaf of greens and accent flowers, ready to be arranged in a vase.
Pick #2: Double Dozen Roses with Upgrade ($29.99 - or only $24.99 without the Baby's Breath upgrade!). Treat your love to two dozen Whole Trade™ roses wrapped with greens and accent flowers, ready to be arranged in a vase.
Guys, here's a tip for you: Did you know that you can avoid the lines and empty shelves on Valentine's Day by ordering your flowers online and picking up in the store? Makes for a quick pick up and guaranteeing you'll get the best price if you wait until the last minute!
What pairs well with Red Roses on Valentine's Day? Well, chocolates and affordable bubbly, of course! I couldn't decide on a single champagne, so I picked two - a his and hers, if you will.
Pick #1: De Chanceny Brut Cremant De Loire ($15.99) - an elegant sparkling wine from the Loire Valley, rich and refined with notes of peach. This would be delicious served with shellfish!
Pick #2: De Chanceny Brut Rose ($11.99) - a sparkling Loire wine. Fresh and lively with aromas of fresh strawberries and hints of almond. Perfect for brunch, the patio, or anytime the mood calls for something festive!
As for chocolates, I could have easily picked the biggest box offered because I can be a lush - but I decided on a smaller box for my top pick: the Timeless Love Assortment. It's small and features nine pieces of chocolate with intricate designs and luscious fillings - all heart-shaped and wrapped in a heart-shaped box! The flavors inside incldue: Honey Caramel, Dark Chocolate Rum Caramel, Milk Chocolate Caramel in red foil, Raspberry in pink foil, and Peanut Butter Sensation.
If you're looking for more Valentine's Day ideas, you can visit the Whole Foods Market e-store and browse the selection online. If I were you, I'd set up my order today for in-store pick up. I don't know where else you'll find 2 dozen Whole Trade red roses for $24.99!
