SALT LAKE CITY — Sweethearts conversation candy may make a return in the near future.
This is in large part due to Necco, which created the candies, going out of business back in 2018, The Boston Globe reported.
However: The Spangler Candy Company bought the candy in September 2018. And it appears the hearts may return sometime in 2019, if not later, according to CandyStore.com.Comment on this story
- Kirk Vashaw, the CEO of Spangler, sent a statement to CandyStore.com that was spelled out with conversation hearts: “Miss U,” “Wait 4 Me” and “Back Soon.”
- Vashaw’s statement came after a previous statement — which is now deleted from Spangler’s website — that said the candies would return in 2020.
Still: Don’t worry about buying your conversation hearts. There will be knock-off brands available in stores.
Beware: Don’t get fooled with leftover candies, though. Any Sweethearts candies made available this year were likely produced prior to July 2018, according to MarketWatch.
