When Valentine’s Day comes to mind, people usually think of a variety of things: romance, candlelit dinners, terribly cheesy cards and, of course, decadent candy boxes. While some of these things may seem to be exclusively dependent on your relationship status (but then again, who said you can’t treat yourself to a candlelit dinner?), this Hallmark holiday has been marked with sweet treats ever since you were a kid. Now that it’s Valentine’s Day again, we at the Clog want to bring some love into your life and help you find out which classic candy Cupid would classify you as.


  1. What are your plans this Valentine’s Day?
    1. I’m probably going to be studying with some friends (welcome to Berkeley, am I right?), but I may surprise them with some cute Valentine’s Day gag gifts.
    2. I have reservations at Venus with my significant other! We are going to get all dolled up and just have a good time on the town.
    3. Some friends and I are going to have a Galentine’s Day get-together.
    4. One of my friends is throwing a party at their house. Sounds like my kind of Tuesday night!
  2. Which movie is your Valentine’s Day pick?
    1. The movie “Valentine’s Day,” of course. It’s the only day of the year you can watch it!
    2. “Casablanca.” Nothing is more suitable than this timeless classic.
    3. “La La Land.” It was so well done and had a great storyline (plus, who doesn’t like Ryan Gosling?).
    4. “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Not super lighthearted, but it really makes you think.
  3. Which celebrity couple is “goals?”
    1. The beautiful duo of Michelle and Barack Obama (do they count as celebrities now?). Talk about a power couple!
    2. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. The perfect match TBH.
    3. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. They seem so happy and down-to-earth.
    4. Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Did you see her new pregnancy photos? QUEEENN!
  4. You get a free round-trip flight to anywhere in the world. Where do you go?
    1. London, England. Sign me up for a good cuppa’ tea and biscuits with the Queen.
    2. Marrakesh, Morocco. It’s filled with endless surprises and beauty.
    3. Phuket, Thailand. I heard the beaches there are to die for. Paddle boarding here I come!
    4. Buenos Aires, Argentina. The city is filled with such passion and life.
  5. Someone buys you the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. What is it?
    1. A box of chocolates. I’m a sucker for traditional gifts.
    2. A bouquet of flowers. I’m not picky — roses, sunflowers, tulips or all of the above!
    3. Can I say a puppy? Because, who doesn’t love puppies?
    4. A concert ticket to see my favorite band. Music speaks to my soul.
  6. Use one word to describe your view on Valentine’s Day.
    1.  Cheesy. Everyone needs a little cheesiness in their life, though.
    2. Underrated. I feel like people forget what it’s actually about.
    3. Love is in the air during the month of February!
    4. Overrated. Might as well be called “Mindless Consumer Day.”
  7. What is your idea of a perfect date?
    1. Going to a fun neighborhood in San Francisco to grab some dinner.
    2. Having a bottle of wine in a park followed by a classic Hollywood film.
    3. Going to Disneyland. I mean, it’s the happiest place on Earth.
    4. Making our way around some local museums before going on a sunset hike.
    1. Life is like a box of chocolates — and so are you! Just like this classic confection, you’re always pleasantly surprising others, whether it’s with spontaneous ideas or kind gestures. With all of the good deeds you’re doing, just make sure not to forget to treat yourself sometimes as well!
    2. It seems as though you have been matched as one of the most romantic dessert delicacies: chocolate-covered strawberries. While sweet and refreshing to be around, you have a more sophisticated side hidden away as well. So, the next time you’re going out, don’t be afraid to surprise people and let your sophistication shine through.
    3. Just like a Hershey’s Kiss, you give everyone that perfect balance in life. Whether your friends are looking for a simple stress-free afternoon out or are preparing to binge-watch “The Bachelor,” they can always wholeheartedly rely on you to bring a good time.
    4. Never afraid to strike up a conversation, you keep it light and bubbly like Conversation Hearts. Friends would call you a social butterfly, but never underestimate the immensity with which you care for your relationships. Also, there’s a reason that this candy is a timeless treat — everyone loves them!
