REFLECTIONS
By Faith Wylie

Twitter proves that an idea can be expressed in 140 characters.

So what? The New England Confectionery Company perfected the art of short messages 152 years ago when the company started printing messages on candies. NECCO created the classic Sweethearts® Conversation Hearts in 1901.

The smaller hearts contain two lines of up to four letters. The larger hearts can have up to six letters per line.
Imagine life reduced to Conversation Hearts.
