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.
OH YOU KID
MY, SUCH EYES
TELL ME HOW
YOU ARE LATE
YOU ARE GAY
This year’s batch includes: UR HOT, TEXT ME, and LOML [that's: Love of My Life].
Well there you have it. Of course, I cannot let this holiday go without just a little flavor…
Have a good one!
