After missing the 2019 Valentine season, SweetHearts conversation candies are returning, but that’s not saying much. The popular candy was picked up by Spangler Candy Company after the original maker filed for bankruptcy. Unfortunately when Spangler was transferring equipment to their own production house, some of the equipment, including the printers, was damaged along the way.
As a result, the majority of SweetHearts candies, typically inscribed with sweet nothings, are now just sweets with nothing on them.
**FYI: The folks at candystore.com got their hands on 10 boxes of the candies and found:
- Only 3% of candies were printed correctly.
- 8% were cut off and left a partial print on them.
- 24% were considered to have “unintelligible markings.”
- A whopping 65% of all candies were blank.
