Heartbreak: No Sweethearts candy will be made for Valentine's Day this year

Sweethearts candy
Something will be missing on store shelves this Valentine's Day season -- Sweethearts candy.

The popular "Sweethearts" candies that have little messages like "Love You," "Bear Hug," "Cutie Pie" and "Ooh La La," will not be made this year.

The Spangler Candy Co., which bought the Sweethearts brand last year, didn't say why, but said the candies will be back for Valentine's Day in 2020.

"We are particularly excited about the Sweethearts brand. Many people have memories of sorting through their box of Sweethearts to find just the right message to share,” Spangler Chairman and CEO Kirk Vashaw said.
