Food and romance are two of life's pleasure, so why not combine them? According Hotel.com's Valentine's Day-themed 2012 survey, the two foods most likely to set the mood for love are...

... Dark chocolate and strawberries.

While these sweet treats tied at about 30 percent of the vote, men showed a slight preference for the strawberries, and women for the dark chocolate. A big juicy filet mignon was voted third most romantic food, with about 18 percent of the vote, and oysters -- famous aphrodisiac that they are -- only snagged nine percent of the vote for fourth place.

Since strawberries and dark chocolate fit almost any budget, you really have no Valentine's Day excuses this year, do you?
