If you’re anything like us, you’ll take any excuse to indulge your sweet tooth. Luckily, holidays like Valentine’s Day provide us with the opportunity to stock up on all of the artificially colored, sugar-filled treats we crave without shame.

This year, brands like Hershey’s and Mars are rolling out new flavors to make this year’s day of love even sweeter. Here’s what you’ll want to get your hands on before they’re gone for the season.

1. M&M’s Black Forest Cake flavor

This new M&M flavor packs the punch of a decadent black forest cake.

Don’t feel like baking? This new M&M flavor packs the punch of a decadent black forest cake in the tiny, candy-coated spheres we know and love. The candy’s milk chocolate-and-cherry center is coated in a dark chocolate and crunchy candy shell for a sweet and tart balance in every bite. (Of course, if you do feel like baking, you can always add these to your chocolate chip cookie batter for a festive twist.)

These pink blossom-top Reese's are topped with a layer of festive creme.

Reese’s classic mini cups are irresistible (at least to me, who can never seem to have just one). These fun-colored blossom-top editions are topped with a layer of light pink creme for an extra-sweet, vibrant treat that get you in the romantic mood.

These heart-shaped versions of the popular cookies 'n' cream flavor have pink cookie pieces throughout.

Since its debut in 1995, Hershey’s Cookies ‘N’ Creme chocolate bar has been a hit. If your valentine is obsessed with this flavor—or just can’t get enough of cookies and cream ice cream—these mini heart-shaped versions are the perfect way to show your love in pink-foil-wrapped bites. (Oh, and the cookie pieces in these are also pink, because, duh.)

Reese's new hearts have a white-creme exterior replacing traditional chocolate.

We’re all familiar with the iconic seasonal shapes of Reese’s peanut butter cups (some even argue the PB-to-chocolate ratio is better when it’s shaped like a pumpkin or egg), but now the beloved chocolate is taking things to the next level, with a new white-creme exterior replacing traditional chocolate on its heart-shaped candies. Sweet tooths, rejoice.
