A Bit of History
The Conversation, or Love Hearts, were made in the mid-1800s by Daniel Chase, who invented a machine that stamped sayings onto candy. Originally called “Wedding candy” the sayings were long and usually printed on paper wrapped around the sweet. Daniel’s brother, Oliver, invented the “Chase Lozenge” in 1847, now known as the NECCO wafer. Today the Conversation Hearts are 100% pure Valentine’s Love.
