Whether you’re celebrating with The One or simply someone, Whole Foods Market® can make your Valentine’s Day a bit sweeter. Win hearts by shopping from our roundup of Cupid-approved gifts and grub. From dessert to…erm…after-dessert, you won’t be able to keep your hands off these treats. Luckily they have impeccable values too – no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives – so you won’t be ashamed to take them home to mama.

Sweets For Your Sweetie

If the way to a man’s (or woman’s) heart is through their stomach, then consider these desserts your ticket to lovers’ lane. Heck, we love em’ so much we might have to marry em’!

Whole Foods MarketTM Frozen Desserts

Caramel Apple Blossoms®, Chocolate Lava Cakes, Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies or Caramelized Panna Cotta

Searching for indulgent sweets for two without the bistro bill this Valentine’s Day? Cook up a little romance with these frozen favorites. They’re ready in a flash and even more splendid served with Whole Foods MarketTM Ice Cream.

Whole Foods Market Chocolate Ice CreamWhole Foods MarketTM Ice Cream

Chocolate, Coffee, Strawberry or Vanilla

Here’s the scoop: these pints have a naturally simple recipe – 6 not-so-secret ingredients. They’re made with milk from cows not treated with synthetic growth hormones (rBST/rBGH). No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners either.

Divine Chocolate
Spread the love with Divine Chocolate, which is owned by cocoa farmers and made for chocolate lovers. Lovingly grown under the tropical rainforest canopy in Ghana, Divine's cocoa beans are carefully fermented and dried by the farmers who co-own the company. When you purchase Divine Chocolate products for your Valentine, you’ll also do a good thing for the farmers in Ghana by ensuring that they receive a Fair Trade price for their cocoa beans.

Whole Foods Market™ Assorted Chocolates

If only life was like this box of chocolates. With favorites like dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt, milk chocolate with raspberry ganache and white chocolate with vanilla buttercream, you always know what you’re gonna get with these premium Belgian chocolates —indulgent taste, affordable price and made without artificial anything.

Whole Foods Market™ Organic Tanzania Schoolhouse Project Chocolate Bars
Milk or Dark Chocolate
Does your love raise the bar? These chocolates do too. A portion of the proceeds from every bar supports education programs for school children in the Kyela district of Tanzania. Plus, these single origin chocolate bars are made entirely from organic cacao purchased directly from farmers in the Kyela district and are certified by the Fair Trade USA. Gotta love that.

Lavender, Peppermint, Eucalyptus or Tea Tree

Our 100% pure essential oils can provide scent and aromatherapy benefits via diffusers or added to a carrier oil (think massages!). Plus, with lots of uses from body care to bathroom cleaner to potpourri, a little goes a long way! Tip: Use the oil in our Homemade Lavender Rose Potpourri, a great way to preserve rose petals and memories. Fill sachets to scent drawers, or place the potpourri in a bowl to add fragrance to a room.
