Everyone loves Sweet Tarts; those heart shaped candies with the special printed message.  However, the printed messages have changed over the years.  The Atlantic has a listing of defunct Sweet Tart messages…

The Sweetheart is 147 years old. But not all of its cute little sayings have enjoyed quite the same sesquicentennial longevity. The folks from NECCO, the confectionery company that sells 4 million pounds of their traditional heart-shaped candies in the 6 weeks before Valentine’s Day, sent me the full list of their most notable retired sayings.

  1. DIG ME

  2. HOT CHA

  3. SAUCY BOY

  4. GIRL POWER

  5. OH YOU KID

  6. WHY NOT

  7. GROOVY

  8. COOL DUDE

  9. MY, SUCH EYES

  10. FAX ME

  11. HEP CAT
