Its official: St. Valentine's Day is on its way!
bringing with it one of my favorite confections: Conversation Hearts! I love their colors, their funny messages, and their low price.
But, the best thing about them is their medicinal component. When I was in second grade, my best friend J.J. [by the way, J.J. if you're reading this, I need your email address] told me that on Valentine's Day a kid could really get sick from eating all the candy they get, but if you save all your pink conversation hearts and eat them at the end of your candy binging you'll be fine. The pink ones are Pepto Bismal. It may seem silly, but ever since second grade, that's just what I've done. The "Pepto hearts" really do seem to help. But maybe it's all in my head.
