The familiar Valentine’s candy will not be available for sale this Valentine’s day, and it’s safe to say that people are a little more than disappointed! Necco’s iconic hearts have flooded stores every February since 1886.

However, fear not! The company promises to produce enough candy hearts for all our needs before this time next year. Read more about it here.
