Love Hearts are one of the most unique and fun filled sweets you can buy, and they offer a nostalgic, retro feel for a lot of people. Personally I do remember having them as a child, so the moment I buy a packet I am transported back several years to days spent looking through the messages on each one, and handing them out to friends and crushes in the playground!
The packing is really sweet and girly, with pink foil wrapped with the signature Love Hearts white wrapper, which is bright with other colours.
The sweets are found stacked inside as a column, and each one is coloured with pastel shades of pink, blue, white, green and yellow. The fun comes with the messages that are conveyed on each one, as each is stamped with a different saying (although very rarely you will see the same one!). The messages range from romantic sayings such as ‘I Love You’ and ‘Kiss Me’, to playful lines such as ‘Guess Who’ and ‘Heart Throb’. Some of the sweets are even adorned with sayings for friends, such as ‘Good Pals’, and some slightly tougher, cheeky phrases such as ‘Dream On’ and ‘Catch Me’.
Overall they’re a really fun treat that was made to be shared!
