Conversation Hearts

- I liked it better when Conversation Hearts actually had conversation on them. These are the Brach's version of the classic candy. A few years ago they decided to go with non-romantic text style messages, yuk. I had a box of the more traditional version made by the New England Confectionery Co. aka Necco, but I ate them before I could make this picture. The Necco sweetheart candies originated from the same formula used in Necco Wafers, a product that has been made continuously since 1847 by Necco and it's predecessor companies.
