HEARTBREAK: No Sweetheart candies this year


If you’re one of those romantic types who prefer to express their feelings with a tiny candy heart, this is going to be a challenging Valentine’s Day.

Sweethearts, the heart-shaped candies that have clever sayings like “Only You,” “Cool Dude” and “You Rule” will not be produced this year.

That’s according to the Spangler Candy Company, which bought out NECCO Wafers and Sweethearts last year.

“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.”

But your heartbreak will be shortlived.

The little tastes of emotion will be back next year in time for Valentine’s Day.
