February 9, 2009
Did you know that conversation hearts ( the heart shaped candy from Necco) :
1. were first manufactured in 1847 in the shape of a scallop
2. Sayings were first printed on the candy in the early 1860's
3. The current heart shaped form was created in 1902.
4. Some original sayings are still being printed. For example- "Be Mine", "Kiss Me" and "Be True".
5. The sayings must be short and g-rated. In honor of the 150th anniversary in 1997, one saying was brought back from the early 1900's- "The One I Love"
