HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
May your Valentines's true love last as long as these little heart candies have been around. (Wow!)
These ubiquitous Valentine's heart candies have been around since the Civil War, when NECCO (New England Confectionery Co.) invented its lozenge printing machine in 1866 which allowed sweet messages to be stamped on their pastel "conversation hearts." Today NECCO produces 8 billion of these little hearts each year, most of which are sold this past week.
Hug me! . . . Be Mine! . . . Yes Dear!
