Necco to Make Twilight-themed Sweethearts!

Here's the (candy?) scoop from It Magazine:
As if Valentine's Day isn't already painful enough, this year's most popular Necco Conversation Hearts candies will be sparkly and feature TWILIGHT-themed kid-friendly sayings such as "Bite Me" and "Soul Mate."

The confectionary company is the latest to jump on the TWILIGHT bandwagon, in an attempt to make their 143-year-old line more relevant to youthful consumers.

The company actually won't be releasing their special edition versions until March, to coincide with the film's DVD release. The TWILIGHT versions will be softer and sparkling, and will come in flavors like "orange obsession" and "tempting apple." More Sweethearts will be available for the November release of the sequel to the film, NEW MOON.

So, BBC friends, what short messages can you think of to put on the new Sweethearts candy? I made the ones above. Put on your thinking caps and see what you can come up with, and we'll display your messages on candy hearts here at the blog on February 14th! Let's stick with Twilight or other vamp books as our theme! Fun!
