Good news Necco Sweethearts Candy Hearts are now available again in the original flavors. In 2010 after 145 years, Necco made some changes to the way they made the conversation hearts. Not only did they change the packaging, but they also made them softer and new flavors. The flavors that came out in 2010 are:
Lemon, Green Apple, Strawberry, Grape, Orange and Blue Raspberry. Although the new Sweethearts Conversation Hearts flavors seem to appeal to the kids of today, most of the adults prefer the candy hearts they ate as a kid.
Candy Conversation Hearts are the number selling Valentine's Day Candy that is not chocolate. Necco Candy Company sells over 8 billion hearts a year. They will start in February making these pastel hearts for the following year.
It makes you wonder why after 150 years they would change them. Well the good news is they are back in the original flavors of Banana, Lime, Cherry, Grape, Orange and Wintergreen. At this point they are only available in a 17 oz bag. Maybe next year they will be back in the little handout 1 oz boxes. At least for those of you that like the original hearts you can still have them.
These were only available in limited quantities, so hurry and get yours now!
