Even the famous Conversation Hearts produced by NECCO have joined the social media world. You’ll still find CALL ME, but this year you also will find TEXT ME and TWEET ME. Taken out of rotation last year was FAX ME. Seriously, when was the last time you faxed someone?
The candy treats are the perfect way to share your sentiment on Valentine’s Day. And NECCO demonstrates that you don’t even need 140 characters to make your point. Most of the candy hearts are 10 letters or less.
The Conversation Hearts are produced from late February through mid-January of the following year to keep up with demand, according to the Web site. The entire production – about 100,000 pounds a day – sells out in just six weeks!
Now who should I share my candy hearts with?
