(Fruit flavour fizzy sweets)
Remember the bigger pack you always tried to get instead of the small ones? Well here they are..
Love Hearts are a type of confectionery manufactured by Swizzels Matlow in the United Kingdom. They are hard, tablet-shaped sweets in a variety of fruit flavours featuring a short, love-related message on one side of the sweet. They were an updated version of Victorian-era Conversation Lozenges.
Production of Love Hearts began in 1954, 26 years after the formation of Swizzels Ltd. The company was initially in factory premises at Star Lane, Canning Town, London, moving later that year to the larger premises at Drivers Avenue, Plaistow, London. During the Blitz in 1940 production relocated to a disused textile mill in New Mills, Derbyshire, where it has stayed to this day.
