Texans' way of buying candy for Valentine's Day has changed over the years. In the past, people would usually buy a heart-shaped box of mystery chocolates, not knowing what they were getting until they bit into it. Unfortunately, more often than not, people ended up with the nasty orange cream filling. As time passed, candy companies realized the potential revenue they could generate from Valentine's Day and began to package their candies in heart-shaped boxes.
