Why You May Not Get A Request To 'Be Mine' This Valentine's Day

If you planned on wooing your sweetheart with, well, Sweethearts this year, you may need to make other arrangements. The chalky hearts imprinted with such sayings as "Be Mine," "Let's Kiss" and "Cutie Pie" aren't being made this year. 

Fortune reports how the Byron, Oh.-based Spangler Candy Co. - which bought up the rights to Necco brands after the company went out of business last year - apparently didn't have enough time after the acquisition to make the quantities necessary to supply stores this year

Spangler did say Sweethearts, which have been around since 1902, will return in 2020. 

Until then, our sweet hearts will be proclaiming "Miss You."
