Love Hearts

What's better for sweetheart's day than a good Love Heart? Getting one from a secret admirer, or a flamboyant crush, it doesn't matter, Valentines day wouldn't be the same with out them. See more Valentine pink at Beverly's.
Wikipedia defines Love Hearts as a confectionery manufactured by Swizzels Matlow in the United Kingdom. A hard fizzy tablet like sweet in a variety of fruit flavors featuring a love related message on one side. Ah...I remember them well.....






Purple-Perfumed berry

Red-Rich berry

They make me drool! Which one is your favorite and which message would you prefer?

There are many messages (it is uncommon to find more than 3 repeats in a packet of 20). These include:

When I was a child in Holland we used to have a similar kind of candy but the hearts didn't have as many messages. I loved the lemon ones the best.

tina said...

I like hearts-candy is the best kind too. Happy Valentine's Day to you. Not sure why the feed did not work but I don't think it is the blog. You might check other blogrolls.

Jean said...

WOW!!!! I had no idea that they now have so many sayings on them. I don't care much for them but it does bring back memories of the "good ole days".

Happy Pink Saturday and Valentines Day to all.

Skeeter said...

Gee, so many words to pick from. I think I will print the list and shoot an arrow at them and the one hit, gets my vote!

I like the orange ones, they are yummy! But with the other type hearts, I like the purple ones best! They are now branching out. According to our paper, you will find the hearts during all occasions as you see the Peeps now for many occasions.

I bet there will be lots of Pink Hearts on the blogs today for Pink Saturday!


Kathleen said...

All those sayings? I had no idea. I always like the pink ones...I am a berry-girl. I like the saying, "kiss me" the best, although, "Text me" is really with the current day. Is it windy there? It is just a whipping here...wind chills are just that, chilling! Hugs, Kathleen

Mermaid Debbie said...

I would choose the Dream Girl heart! Thanks for the informative Pink Saturday post.

Diane said...

Hi Dawn,

Great post, I still like to eat them, but had no idea about the history.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit! Murphy loves most fruits and vegetables. He just gobbled up the strawberries. It probably helped that there were some bits of frosting from resting next to the cakes. He would have eaten them anyway though. ☺

Happy Valentine's Day & a Happy Pink Saturday too! ♥ Diane

Sit-N-Chat said...

Boy, I didn't know Love Hearts had so many messages!
I didn't know all this. Pink Saturday is educational after all.

Have a great Lord's Day.


Marie said...

CC said...

I love hearts with a message. Who wouldn't? Kiss me has to be my favorite, after all it is Valentines. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Loretta said...

Happy Valentine's Day! I used to adore those candies. Now I hate them. LOL Give me dark chocolate any day! A few years ago I found PLATES in those shapes. I'll have to take a photo for my blog.

Linda said...

Happy Pink Saturday. I have a box of those hearts and now you have peeked my curiousity and I am going to have to open it and see how many of the sayings are included! Thanks for the neat bit of trivia! And thanks for your recent visit to my blog.
