Sweethearts®, British Style: Love Hearts Go Gold And Silver!

Here in the U.S., Necco® Sweethearts® Conversation Hearts have been the favorite Valentine candy since 1902. Though they are considered candy for kids, more than one serious marriage proposal has been made with a Sweetheart by a chronological adult. That's because the candies bring back so many innocent and cherished memories from our youth that, as adults, we still get pleasure having them around on Valentine's Day.

Great Britain's Sweethearts are called Love Hearts, manufactured by Swizzles Matlow since 1933. More tart and fizzley than Sweethearts, Love Hearts are definitely the sentimental equivalent when it comes to the role they play in the Valentine history of a Brit.

That's why Suck UK's gold and sterling silver plated versions of the Love Heart make gifting so sweet. Though you may still have the original Love Heart you received from your one true love, fizzling away in your treasure chest, Suck UK's versions are sure to last. And they are guaranteed, whether you're a Love Hearts or a Sweethearts fan, to bring back memories of the good old childhood years in the playground when you first lost your heart.

 

 

Love Hearts, 2cm (.79") diameter and .4cm (.16") thick, come pre-inscribed with "I LOVE YOU" on one side. You can choose your own personal words to inscribe the opposite side, within space and propriety constraints. Details are found at Firebox.com.
