You know who loves you? Ice cream loves you.

Just two days ago, Starbucks rolled out its line of drinks celebrating love, available this week only. In brisk fashion, rival (not really) Dairy Queen has announced its release of the "Singles Blizzard," just in time for Feb. 14.

What's in it? Salted caramel truffles, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and peanut butter topping blended with DQ's soft serve ice cream. You know what's not mixed in? Tears. So if you're newly solo, suck it up and eat that Singles Blizzard proudly, ladies and gents.

Perfect for a night in with your true love (couch) and your bae-on-the-side (Netflix). Honestly, that kind of sounds like a better V-Day date even if you're consciously coupled than battling the crowds at a restaurant, but what do we know?

If you're looking for other sweet treats for Valentine's Day at DQ, don't miss their Red Velvet Blizzard and heart-shaped red velvet cake, too. Both best eaten a deux.

The two participating Central Florida Dairy Queen locations are on Curry Ford and Conway and at Colonial Drive and Goldenrod.
