PARK RIDGE, IL - FEBRUARY 10: A bag of Conversation Hearts is displayed at a Fannie May Candies store February 10, 2006 in Park Ridge, Illinois. According to reports, this year's total Valentine's Day spending will increase by half a billion dollars in comparison to last year, with the average male spending nearly double that of the average female.

Last year, for the first time since 1901, conversation hearts were NOT on sale for Valentine’s Day.  Good news is, they’ll be back but the new owners say they couldn’t make enough supply to meet the demand, and their printer broke so a lot of the hearts you get will be BLANK.  The new owners are the Spangler Candy Company and they’re saying to be prepared for a lot of bags having a lot of blanks or just hearts with red splotches on them. They’re hoping that by Valentine’s Day 2021 they’ll be ready to meet demand and print a message on every heart.
