What Valentines would be complete without those sugary little conversational hearts that surface every year around Valentines Day.
When deciding what to create for Absinthe Rabbits Valentine Collection we were inspired to blend products named after these confectionery messages. They are part of our Sweet Hearts Valentines Collection (sorry this collection is old out)
First introduced in 1902 by NECCO Candy Co, in 1990 some sayings were retired and others updated to reflect the times; Email me, Txt Me, and #Love have replaced Sweet Pea and Love Bug. Yet the old sentiments of Be Mine, Hold Hands, and the ever popular Marry Me are still in existence and sayings change from year to year. Nearly 100,000 pounds of these hearts are made per day and sell out in less than six months.
In literature Anne of Green Gables (1908), Gilbert attempts to give a pink candy heart with the words, "You Are Sweet", to Anne, who promptly grinds it under her heel. The hearts make another appearance in Little House in the Big Woods, (1932) when Laura and her sister are given a piece of white heart candy by a shopkeeper.
Included in the collection: BE MINE warming bath soak, HOT STUFF Skin soothing Massage oil, XXXX OOO Rose & Spice Tea and LET'S KISS creamy Vegan Lip Therapy. Organic Botanicals to share with friends and loved ones, or even show yourself a little love this Valentines.
