Why are strawberries linked with romance?

There’s a lot about strawberries that make them perfect for Valentine's Day, let’s face it – they even look like little red hearts.

But did you know that, next to chocolate, strawberries are one of the most loved aphrodisiacs? In fact, that's why the pairing was first created. And that's why we think they're the perfect Valentine's Day gift or treat.

There's also a lot more romantic history to strawberries than meets the eye. Our favourite red berry dates back to Ancient Rome where it was considered the symbol of Venus, the goddess of love, because of its bright red colour and intoxicating taste.

Legend has it that when two people split a strawberry, they’ll fall in love.

How does cold strawberry soup sound? In the French countryside, there was once a tradition of serving this to newlyweds as an aphrodisiac on their honeymoon.

While cold strawberry soup sounds 'interesting' we think we'll stick with the magic pairing of chocolate and strawberries.

Watch some of our favourite chocolate covered strawberry videos below and say 'I love you' with berries this Valentine's Day.
