Uh oh! Sweethearts could not be on shelves this year


(WIAT) —  With Valentine’s Day around the corner, one of America’s favorite candies will be missing from shelves. Necco, the company that made the Sweethearts Conversation Hearts, was sold last year. 

Candystore.com reports the only ones left were made before the factory closed last July. Spangler Candy, which acquired the brand, hopes to start making them again in time for Valentine’s day 2020.
