It wouldn't be Valentine's Day without those fun messages on candy hearts that you see everywhere! This February tradition was started by
the brother of the founder of NECCO in the 1860s. Remember, this was Abe Lincoln's era, so you know they've been around for a while. Candy hearts were originally printed with hand tools. It seems like a lot of work, but some people will do extraordinary things for love. It took about forty years before the ones we are familiar with went into production. Today, over 8 billion of these chalky hearts are produced annually. They're made from late February until mid January of the following year, averaging about 100,000 pounds a day. They sell out in about six weeks.

These are some of the messages you might have seen over the years:
