Ugh, now THIS is sad news! America’s so-called "favorite" Valentine’s Day candy won’t be available this year! Yep! Sweethearts, the "conversation heart candy", is missing from shelves this Valentine’s season after its original producer, Necco, went out of business!
Get this too: even though most people might think chocolate when it comes to buying a Valentine’s gift for that special someone, Candystore.com reported that conversation hearts were the most popular candy for Valentine's Day in 2018!
There IS a company that bought out Sweethearts’ owner, but it only acquired it last September, and did not have the time to produce the conversation hearts for this Valentine’s Day. Hopefully we’ll see them in 2020!
