Happy Valentine's Day! A day of showing others you love them, coworkers getting flowers sent to them at the office, and heart shaped sweets. One of those staple sweets are the ever-present Sweethearts, or conversation hearts.

Sweethearts were made by the New England Confectionery Company, or Necco, before being purchased by the Spangler Candy Company in 2018. They were also previously made by the Stark Candy Company. Necco manufactured nearly 8 billion Sweethearts per year.

Usually these chalky hearts have super simple messages on them like Love You", or "Be Mine". But what if we made them way more complicated, and 100x more Minnesotan? We have a weird way of showing love, so here are what candy hearts would say if they were created by Minnesotans, for Minnesotans.

"For Cute"

"Ope, Let Me Squeeze Ya"

"Need A Beer?"

"Hotter Than The Lake in July"

"The Juicy To My Lucy"

"Meat Raffle?"

"You Look Like Princess Kay"

"Wanna Go 2 Target?"

"Be My State Fair Date"

"Stay Warm"

"Cooler Than An Ice Hole"

"Better Than Front Row Parking at MOA"

"Watch For Deer"

"Want Some Ranch?"

"Spicy Like Ketchup"

"Boo Packers"
