While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

People will spend about $1.6 billion on candy this Valentine's Day, including on those heart-shaped boxes of assorted chocolate. It’s only fitting then that February 14 also happens to be National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day!

Many candy companies now make chocolates filled with all sorts of different flavored creams: coconut, strawberry, hazelnut, blueberry. (You know what they say "Life is like a box of chocolates...")

So, take a moment today to celebrate this treat yourself - no matter your relationship status.
