It’s almost Valentine’s Day! If you are looking to land a date, it is probably time to make your move! Flowers are always nice, but sometimes you just have to spell it out for the one you love. Why not also make sure to include a box of good, old-fashioned Sweethearts candy?

Sweethearts (or conversation hearts) are bestselling tiny tasty treats, notable for their exclamations of love and affection. Made by NECCO, one of the country’s oldest candy company, Sweethearts’ ingredients haven’t changed since 1902, when the candy was first introduced. However, along with the times, since the early 1990s, the sayings on the candies have been changing on a regular basis and NECCO receives hundreds of saying suggestions a year. Don’t worry, original phrases still in the mix include “Be Mine,” “Be Good,” Kiss Me” and “Sweet Talk,” and “True Love” was resurrected in 1997 from the early 1900s to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary! Wow! That’s a long time! Sweethearts must have the perfect recipe for a lasting commitment!      ~Carol
