Sweethearts candy won't 'be yours' this Valentine's Day

Posted: Updated:

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. But if you were planning to give your family and friends those iconic heart conversation candies, you'll need to find something else to hand out.

WFTS report that Sweethearts, the heart-shaped candies that have sayings on them like "Love You," "Cutie Pie" and "Ooh La La," will not be produced this year.

But according to the Spangler Candy Company, which purchased Sweethearts and NECCO Wafers in 2018, the candy hearts will be back in time for the 2020 Valentine season.

“Sweethearts and Necco Wafers are iconic brands with rich hundred-year-plus histories.” Spangler Chairman and CEO Kirk Vashaw said. “We are particularly excited about the Sweethearts brand. Many people have memories of sorting through their box of Sweethearts to find just the right message to share.”

Companies like Brach's still have the conversation hearts candies available.
