For years these little candies have been a staple of Valentines Day. (Made, as some say, of ear wax and chalk.) My Dad decided that he wanted to get some for my Mom as sort of a joke since she doesn’t like them but he does. Imagine our surprise when no one could find these little hearts at the store. I guess couples these days prefer candies that actually taste good as opposed to ones that spark conversations.
OK, so I did finally find some for the Fogies to share. What shocked me was the teeny, tiny size of the box. I could hear maybe 8 candies rattling around inside. For shame, Brachs.
My boys, on the other paw, were pretty creative with their gifts. Geordie wrote one of his special messages for me. This was the closest he has ever come to saying that he likes me.
I kid you not: it was shaped like a heart.
Toby’s was the Chinese word for “fire”. (Perhaps he has a more ardent personality than I give him credit.)
So, if you have ever wondered what the most romantic day in the year is like in Bitey’s world, this is it.
To everyone, we wish you a Yappy Valentine’s Day!
Bitey, I’m impressed! You left a heart for your mom. I didn’t know Toby is bilingual.
Only from that end…
The NECCO factory closed and a new factory to make the little hearts hasn’t been found yet.
Ohhh, I didn’t realize that. I’ll have to let my folks know!
Your boys are soooo talented!
Unfortunately, the candy hearts are no longer made. But according to the news the company that bought them out will start making them again next year?
I am sure a lot of nostalgic couples will be happy when that new company starts production!
