Sweethearts are small heart-shaped candies sold around Valentine's Day. Each conversation heart is printed with a message such as 'Be Mine', 'Kiss Me', 'Call Me', 'Let's Get Busy', and 'Miss You'. Sweethearts are made by the New England Confectionery Company, or Necco. A similar type of candy is sold in the UK under the name Love Hearts. Necco manufactures nearly 8 billion Sweethearts per year.
