Sweethearts from Boston are Here.

Hi,

It has taken a while for us to get them but the original Sweethearts made by NECCO, the New England Confectionery Company in Revere Masachusetts, (yes named after Paul Revere famous for his ride warning the population that “the British are Coming”). Situated not far from Boston this Company is famous for it’s quality products. Each heart is beautifully made with clear writing and their slogan is “From my Heart….To Yours”.

Sweethearts candies 28g box

Sweethearts candies 28g box

 When you have something sweet to say, say it with Sweethearts(R)! For 145 years, Sweethearts, the official candy of love(TM), have provided sentimental and endearing ways for people to express their love.

Sweethearts have been a Valentine tradition since President Abraham Lincoln was in office. In fact, the concept of Conversation Motto Hearts dates back to the 1800s when printed sayings on colored paper were placed in “Cockles,” small crisp candies formed in the shape of a scalloped shell. In 1866, Daniel Chase, brother of Oliver Chase, who founded New England Confectionery Company in 1847, invented the process which allows the sayings to be printed directly on the candy. Some of the original phrases include “Be Mine,” “Be Good,” “Be True,” “Kiss Me” and “Sweet Talk.” In recent years, more contemporary sayings have been added, including “E-mail Me” and “Text Me.”

The New England Confectionery Company was founded in 1847 and is the longest-running multi-line candy company in the United States. Popular brands include: NECCO Wafers, Clark bar, Sweethearts Conversation Hearts, Mary Jane, Haviland Thin Mints and Might Malts Malted Milk Balls. More than 500 seasonal and year-round products are produced at the company’s headquarters in Revere, Mass.

The following  information is provided by Unreal Candy from their website.

Is UNREAL candy wheat- or gluten-free?

All of our candy has been made with 100% gluten-free ingredients, but we manufacture in facilities that also handle products containing gluten. The “possible wheat allergen” warning is a legal disclaimer to warn people that there may be atmospheric gluten that makes its way into our candy during production. We have tested all of our products for gluten and they all came back as, less than 5 parts per million. For context, the “gluten-free” threshold is less than 20 parts per million. But remember, analytical testing is one point in time and although we are careful to keep all potential cross-contamination to a minimum, there is always a potential.

 

Where is UNREAL made?

Our candies are 100% made in North America.

How can I trust your candy is really non-GMO?

During development, we went through a painstaking process to ensure we only use ingredients that are free from GMOs (which is harder than you might think!), and every ingredient big or small has documentation to this effect. As the use of GMOs in the food supply are relatively new, there has been no comprehensive testing done as to their effects. There are strong arguments on both sides regarding the safety of products containing GMOs, but no one knows the long-term effects.

Does UNREAL candy contain tree nuts? Is any UNREAL candy risk-free when it comes to nuts?

The “may contain” allergy warning exists on our products, including those made without nuts, because all candies are processed on machinery that also processes peanuts and tree nuts. All of our candy products should be consumed with caution should you have any forms of allergies.

Is UNREAL candy Kosher?

All of our candy is certified under the same organization, Circle-K. You’ll notice the symbol of the letter K within a circle on the back our packaging.

Is UNREAL candy considered “diabetic-friendly”?

All of our candies have been created to be Low Glycemic Index and have been tested to insure that they meet this standard. Our candy has, on average, 40% less sugar on a product-to-product basis (with the full transparency that our products are 15% smaller than the competition), and this is in itself beneficial to the diabetic community. We have also added the maximum possible amounts of protein and fiber, which positively impacts the glycemic effect of our products. This basically means when you eat it, you have less of a blood sugar spike and less of a “crash” afterwards.
