Valentine's Day candy
|Did you know?... Small pieces of candy cut into the shape of
a heart first hit the market in 1901. These candy hearts are called
Sweethearts. Words are printed on these candy hearts, such as "Be Mine." In
the 1990s some of the words were updated, and Sweethearts held words like "Email
Me." These sweetheart words were very unpopular, and after years of
declining sales, candy hearts went back to their original wording.
