In celebration of the most romantic day of the year, Morrisons has launched some heart-shaped doughnuts in the lead up to Friday 14 February.

The sugary treats are filled with juicy raspberry jam and finished with a light dusting of icing sugar.

The doughnuts are being sold in packs of two for just £1, making it a sweet Valentine’s Day gift that won’t break the bank. The supermarket’s regular round doughnuts are priced at £1.65 each, meaning shoppers can bag a bargain with the heart-shaped pack of two.

Other food outlets have hopped on the Valentine’s Day food themed band wagon, with Krispy Kreme also selling some heart-shaped treats in honour of 14 February.

A white chocolate berry heart, with a strawberry and white chocolate filling, dipped in white chocolate icing and coated in berry pieces.

A dark chocolate mint heart, covered in dark chocolate icing and mint sugar nibs, with a mint chocolate filling.

The dish comprises four sausages which have been crafted into the shape of a love heart, and includes the flavours of thyme, sage nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Shoppers can also get their hands on the meaty treat as part of Asda’s three for £10 offer.
