Sweethearts candy could be missing from your store aisle this Valentine’s Day


One of the staple candies from Valentine’s Day could be hard to find this year.

Sweethearts candy, the iconic brand that features sayings on the heart-shaped candies like “Be Mine,” “Miss you,” and “Love me,” will be taking a hiatus from being made this year as the new company works on moving its factory.

According to a release from Ohio-based Spangler Candy, the company that bought the original makers of Sweethearts, Necco, they plan on restarting production on the candy in 2020.

Until then, you’ll have to find some left over bags to get you through Valentine’s Day. 

Spangler Candy Co. announced the purchase of Necco in June of 2018.
