Can’t Find the Right Valentine’s Day Gift? Try Cupid Poop

Columbia Empire Farms offers Oregon-made chocolate hazelnut toffee in fun packaging

PORTLAND, Ore.--()--Do you sometimes feel like Valentine’s Day takes itself a little too seriously, what with all the long-stemmed roses, elegant chocolates and professions of undying love? Maybe the traditional gifts just seem too unoriginal. Or perhaps your relationship is still in the early stages, or your beloved’s tastes lean more toward the whimsical than the sentimental.

If you’re looking for a more lighthearted way to acknowledge the day, check out Cupid Poop. Handcrafted in Oregon from premium ingredients, Cupid Poop is Columbia Empire Farms’ popular hazelnut butter toffee enrobed in rich milk chocolate...and shaped to resemble the poop of a small winged child. (Yes, of course it’s scientifically accurate.) A 4 oz. bag retails for $5.99.

If you find cupids a bit creepy, try one of Columbia Empire Farms’ other poop products, which include love birds, cow pies, deer poop and slug poop, among many other options.

Columbia Empire Farms also offers fruit preserves and syrups, wine jellies, vinaigrettes, honey, hazelnuts, candy, and many other Pacific Northwest specialties. Gift baskets are available. For more information, or to order online, visit
