“I’m glad that the company that made those little Valentine’s Day heart candies isn’t selling them this year,” Carol said.
“Why not? I liked them,” Donna said. “I thought they were sweet, both in sentiment and in taste.”
“They just aren’t appropriate in this day and age. #MeToo.”

FYI, the New England Confectionery Company, or Necco, the company that made these candy hearts, known as “Sweethearts,” declared bankruptcy last year. Since then, the rights to Sweethearts were acquired by Spangler Candy Company last September. Because of the change, Sweethearts will not be sold for Valentine’s Day this year, but will be available again next year.
