Sweethearts(or know also as conversation hearts), the pastel candy hearts with romantic messages that have become synonymous with Valentine’s Day, are back after the beloved candy was absent last year after it changed ownership to Spangler Candy. But there will be a few changes. The printer that gave Sweethearts their trademark romantic quips wasn’t working consistently and the new printer was damaged, which means that this year’s crop of hearts will have less to say than usual. The candy may also taste a little different after Spangler found the original recipe for Sweethearts in old paperwork. Necco had modified the formula and flavors over Sweethearts’ 118-year history, and Spangler is excited to bring back the Original flavors, including banana and wintergreen.
