I wish I was that woman who has Christmas presents purchased and wrapped by November 1, the one who has everyone's name on a calendar with a box of generic-but-sentimental-enough birthday cards just ready to be mailed. I aspire to be that woman. But, I am not.

In fact, I am so not that woman that I can almost guarantee you I'll be in Target at 9:30 p.m. February 13 digging through the sad leftovers of all the Valentine's Day goodies everyone else left behind. Fortunately, as part of my job here at Cooking Light, I taste test a lot of food products in any week. That means I've got a pretty good idea of what sweets are worth my money (and yours) and which you just shouldn't bother with at all. This is that list.
