Stop the Press! Twilight-Themed Necco Conversation Hearts
According to the Boston Herald, NECCO (the New England Confectionery Company), creator of the Valentine classic Sweetheart Conversation Hearts, will be releasing a Twilight-inspired version of the candy. The Twilight hearts are set to debut in March and coincide with the release of the film on dvd.
More details from the article:
"NECCO will release softer, sparkling versions of the pastel sugar hearts in March, when the film is released on DVD. The printed messages will include “Bite Me,” “Secret” and “Soul Mate,” and flavors such as “orange obsession” and “tempting apple.” More Sweethearts will hit stores for the November release of the “New Moon” sequel."
I am curious to see how they are going to make the candies sparkle. However, I can't help but be a little disturbed by the additional news of the Twilight-themed Sky Bar "customed molded shapes". Sky Bar tastes like feet. If Edward could eat, he wouldn't eat Sky Bar foot candy! I hope this doesn't backfire on them.
