Sweethearts Conversation Hearts are a product of the Spangler Candy Company, and are likely the first thing that springs to mind when you think about Valentine’s Day. Typically, the hearts have messages on them such as “YOU + ME” and “XOXO”. But this year, Spangler has announced the 2022 theme for its Sweethearts slogans will be “Words of Encouragement” that emphasize friendship instead of flirtation. A press release says, “Fans of the beloved candy hearts will find 16 new sayings inside this year’s boxes including, ‘WAY 2 GO,’ ‘CRUSH IT’ and ‘HIGH FIVE’ alongside classic message like ‘BE MINE,’ ‘HUG ME’ and ‘CUTIE PIE.’ The 2022 theme aims to show recipients just how special they are, give their spirits a lift and say a special thank you to anyone who helped them do and become their best—from teachers, mentors, and coaches, to family, friends, teammates and countless other difference-makers.” The flavor line-up hasn’t changed, and includes: Wintergreen, Orange, Lemon-Lime, Blueberry, Banana, Grape, and Cherry.
