America’s Favorite Valentine’s Day Candy Won’t Be Available This Year

January 24, 2019

For the first time since 1901, the most recognizable and popular Valentine’s Day candy won’t be on sale this year. Your sweetheart won’t be able to enjoy the Sweetheart conversation hearts this Valentine’s Day because its producer, Necco, went out of business last year.

The Spangler Candy Company acquired the rights to make the candy in September of last year, but didn’t have time to produce the conversation hearts in time for this year.

With conversation hearts out of the way, it opens up the path for candies like heart-shaped boxes of chocolate to continue its reign as the most popular Valentine’s Day candy in North Carolina.
