When the Necco equipment was en route to Spangler, the original 118-year-old recipe for the conversation hearts was found in a stack of old paperwork.
And many of them, due to the unreliable printer, will be left blank with no words at all. • Video and Photos Below, Jan 25, 2020 By Clair Robins Does anyone know if nECCO/Spangler Sweethearts are back this year? After last year’s much publicized candy heart hiatus, consumers are more gung ho than ever to buy up these fun and unappetizing things. The candy company known for its Dum Dum lollipops took over Necco's Sweetheart production and it hasn't been easy. According to Eschhofen, the Spangler team found the original 118-year-old recipe tucked away in piles of Necco paperwork. According to our review of the newly returned in 2020 conversation hearts phenom SweetHearts, 97% are without a complete phrase on them. Sweethearts’ original producer, NECCO, known for old-fashioned confections like NECCO Wafers, went out of business in 2018. Spangler couldn’t revive Sweethearts in time for the 2019 Valentine’s Day season, leading to a candy heart shortage.
But the new owner was unable to meet production demand in 2019. Spangler was able to get some printing working in time for production, but did warn that there wouldn’t be as many phrases and some of them would be blank. See more images below.
And 65% have no markings on them at all.
What phrases will we see emblazoned on the candy hearts of tomorrow? "Based on consumer response and the technical challenges, we are not going to be able to meet all of the consumer demand for 2020," Spangler spokeswoman Diana Moore Eschhofen told CNBC. When Spangler bought Necco Wafers and SweetHearts, they got the original recipes going back more than 118 years.
When Necco, the maker of America's most iconic Valentine candies, announced it was going out of business in March 2018, candy lovers were devastated.
Almost every year, Easter and National Jelly Bean Day both ...more, Easter is a really big candy holiday. Because some of the equipment that prints the teeny tiny phrases on each heart arrived at Spangler’s facility damaged, the company has had to limit the amount of quips present on the production line. Conversation hearts’ raison d’etre!
A bit of background here: Necco (short for the New England Candy Company), beloved producer of the divisive Necco Wafers and Sweethearts Conversation Hearts candies, was sold in May 2018 to Round Hill Investments, and the factory abruptly shuttered. They’ll need to be more targeted with their offerings.
First, they had to dismantle, move and reinstall 60 truckloads of equipment from the old Necco factory in Revere, Massachusetts, (some with cranes through its roof) to a new facility. In July 2018, Round Hill Investments sold Necco’s wafer and conversation hearts brands to the Spangler Candy Company, best known as the producer of Dum Dum Lollipops. That’s right. Unfortunately, Spangler wasn’t able to get production up and running this time last year. The tribulations of this little confection never cease. What phrases will we see emblazoned on the candy hearts of tomorrow? They taste really good.
This is good news for SweetHearts lovers. And that brings us to our third piece of good news.
My weird seasonal pet peeve: People coming up with fake candy hearts where the message is way longer than anything they would put on a real candy heart. Especially the Banana ones! See above. Some Sweethearts will be left blank and you won't be able to find them everywhere. The bankruptcy left panicked fans scrambling to find remnants of Necco wafers and other candies at local corner stores and across the internet. • Most Popular Valentine's Day Candy Are 65% Blank Spagler expects to rebound to full production capacity in 2021, a distant future with new slang that probably doesn’t even exist yet.

Firstly, they are back. I guess because your sweetie leaves you speechless? “We know that’s disappointing, but it’s a disappointment for us, too,” Eschhofen said. While these developments may disappoint SweetHearts lovers who have been patiently anticipating their return, the news here is not all bad. Getting a 2020 SweetHeart from a Valentine is special. Production challenges plagued Spanler’s efforts to quickly bring SweetHearts production roaring back to full capacity. We opened 10 boxes of the new SweetHearts and counted what came out.
