Sweethearts Candy Hearts Are Not Available This Valentine’s Day for the First Time in 153 Years – But We Can Still Get Them!

Sweethearts Candy Hearts Are Not Available This Valentine’s Day for the First Time in 153 Years – But We Can Still Get Them!

people.com: “If you’ve been looking forward to exchanging the classic candy conversation hearts with your loved one this Valentine’s Day, you’re going to have to wait another year.

For the first time since they made their debut in 1866, the New England Confectionery Company (Necco) will not be selling Sweethearts Conversation Hearts.

Last July, Necco closed its doors and the SweetHearts brand was sold to Spangler Candy Company, according to CandyStore.com. Since it typically took Necco 11 months to produce 8 billion candy hearts, there was not enough lead time for the new company to create the hearts and sell for this season.

On the bright side, Spangler’s CEO says the hearts will be available again in 2020, already giving us something to look forward to next year.”


Here at Captiv8, we can still source candy hearts in custom packaging, or even custom printed hearts, just in time for Valentine’s Day!
