If you’re looking for portents and secret messages in your candy hearts you probably won’t find them, but you will find many cute sayings.
This is what I found in mine.
- I love you
- Miss you
- Je T’Aime
- Best Day
- Pugs and Kittens
- Dream Big
- Real Love
- Marry Me
- First Kiss
- My Love
- Live N Love
- Be Happy
- Real Love
While I savored the hearts’ sugary goodness, I did some research. Every year Nesco, the company that has made candy hearts since 1902, updates the sayings it prints. Last year they held a contest where they allowed fans to submit their ideas for new messages. Over one hundred and fifty ideas came from thirty-two states and the winners were: Girl Power, Pugs and Kittens and Love to Dance. In addition, this year, the company added these new sayings: Te Amo, Je T’Aime, BFF, and the emojis of a smiley face and a mustache.
What message would you like to see on a candy heart? Leave a comment and let me know. Thanks.
