Love Hearts were initially launched back in 1954 and have since taken the world by storm! Whether it is for a wedding, Valentines Day, birthday party or other special occasion, Love Hearts are the perfect choice of sweet to accompany the occasion.
Made by Swizzels Matlow, the method on how to make Love Hearts is, in fact, a secret! They were first produced all those years ago by David Dee and continue to be as popular as they were back then.
All we know is that they are made in “The Factory of Love”.
Swizzels gave their factory this name after the loved-up couples in their staff team who met at work.
