Pink Snack Ideas, for Valentine’s Day or Any Day

Valentine’s Day, fortunately for some, only comes once a year. It may be a holiday that’s targeted toward couples, but singletons can still enjoy the ~vibes~. We’re talking heart-shaped boxes of candy. Pink-and-red everything. Little candy hearts that say things like “EMAIL ME.” If you’re planning a Valentine’s Day-esque gathering and looking for some pink party snacks (or you just want something cute to eat), these suggestions are for you! Strawberry lovers, rise up!

Crunchy Strawberry Pocky

Pocky has an addicting snap that makes these little baton-shaped coated biscuits extremely fun to eat. The Crunchy Strawberry flavor—a chocolate biscuit dipped in a textured Pepto-pink coating—ranked high on Sporked‘s list of the best Pocky flavors. Contributor Danny Palumbo wrote that this flavor “tastes a lot like a chocolate covered strawberry,” which is perfect for that Valentine’s Day-adjacent feel. (If you’re craving actual chocolate-covered strawberries, we have you covered there, too.)

Tillamook Oregon Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry isn’t the only pink ice cream flavor, but it’s certainly the best pink ice cream flavor. Tillamook Oregon Strawberry ice cream landed at the top of our list of the best strawberry ice creams at the grocery store. Danny was a fan of its “profound tang, delightful tartness, and nice chunks of strawberry.” For even more pink, serve this in little bowls with strawberry Pocky as a garnish!

JoJo Siwa Strawberry Bop Breakfast Cereal

This is the pink-snack sleeper hit that none of us saw coming. Senior writer Jordan Myrick tried JoJo Siwa’s garishly pink cereal our best fruity cereal ranking, and we were all afraid to admit how much we liked it. “It has a great, airy crunch and natural strawberry flavor,” Jordan wrote. And did we mention it has marshmallow? This cereal may be for kids, but grown folks won’t be able to resist it either.

Starburst All Pink Lollipops

Starbursts are delicious, even if they get stuck in your teeth. That’s just a fact. But did you know they make lollipops, too? In our ranking of the best Starburst products, Danny shouted out these All Pink Lollipops. “The distinctly sour strawberry flavor is alive and well in these hard shell lollipops,” he wrote. And don’t worry, they still have a chewy center. If you’re in search of a pink party snack with a sour edge, these are worth a trip to the store. 

Tillamook Seriously Strawberry Cream Cheese 

If you’re like me, then you learned within the past year that sweet cream cheese exists—better yet, sweet pink cream cheese. Tillamook wowed us again with its Seriously Strawberry Cream Cheese. This knocked Jordan’s socks off during our cream cheese taste test. “I couldn’t believe it when I opened the Tillamook Strawberry Cream Cheese tub and found big pieces of actual fruit folded into the cream cheese,” they wrote. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fruit cream cheese with real fruit bits.” Put out a tub of this alongside some sweet-leaning crackers, and it’s an extremely cute pink party snack.
