Heart-shaped foods aren’t only popular around Valentine’s Day.

Starting today through May 13, you can buy these “corazonchas” for 65 cents each or an 8-pack for $2.99 at all the Fiesta stores in Texas. You’ll remember that Fiesta got a new owner a few months ago, and this is the latest in a series of new marketing initiatives to expand the supermarket’s consumer reach.
