Retro love heart sweets have become synonymous with Valentine's Day, but if you're sick of the traditional candy hearts, there are a ton of ways to incorporate them into your February 14th celebrations in a new way.

If you're still working hard on your new year's resolutions and have vowed not to eat sweets, you can still get your fix of candy hearts from wearable items like nail decals, sweatshirts and shoes with the sweet sayings on them.

For a bit of geeky romance, there are also some hi-tech ways to share these candies, like online candy message generators and text that has been updated for the digital age with QR codes and sayings like "tweet me." Of course, if you're still looking for something edible, you could always try a recipe that reinterprets classic love hearts with donuts, bacon or an alcoholic beverage.
