There are some things a box of chocolate simply can’t say. Like, “Call Me,” “Lover Boy”, or “Dream On.”
Which is the genius of NECCO Sweethearts Conversation Hearts; they succinctly state whatever it is we’re feeling when it comes to love (or lack thereof).
For the past 145 years, the sayings have been pretty standard. But for the first time, NECCO is allowing candy-addicts to pick all 80 expressions for Valentine’s Day 2010. Through May 31, you can submit your own phrase at mysweethearts.com. Not only will you have the chance to win prize packages, but you’ll also get boasting honors come February 14.
Just don’t get too excited; as it turns out, coming up with these phrases is quite an art. You’re allowed five characters in the top row and four in the bottom, so some real winners (like “Follow Me On Twitter”) are just too long.
But one that fits perfectly? “Nylon Love”. Indeed.
