Valentine’s Day Cards and Chocolates
Original Valentine’s Day cards, also dating back to the 17th Century were all handmade, and it wasn’t until the 18th century when cards could be sent that these grew in popularity.
Now the card-making business is significantly larger, with some 6 million manufactured cards anticipated to be exchanged on the day in America alone.
And what would the card be without being paired with chocolate – a tradition made popular by the Spanish in the late 17th Century.
Cadbury released a Valentine’s Day themed chocolate box for the first time in 1861, and today ProFlowers estimates around 36million heart-shaped boxes are sold every year.
