Last year, food brand launched a "Kraft is for Lovers" campaign ahead of Valentine’s Day, which urged parents to buy its "big bowl" for their kids so they can spend the night together uninterrupted.
Kraft isn’t the only company trying to keep romance alive during the coronavirus pandemic, however. The Hershey Company unveiled its lineup of Valentine’s Day sweets back in December, while burger chain White Castle will transform its traditional dining plans into a national drive-in event.
While it remains to be determined just how much consumers will shell out for Valentine’s Day this year, but shoppers spent about $27.4 billion on gifts for partners, friends, pets and more last year, according to data from the National Retail Federation.
