‘You Are Gay’ & 19 More Retired Sweethearts Candy Sayings

Wink Wink

New England-based confectionery company NECCO has been making chalk-like candy of all shapes and sizes since 1847, but perhaps the most beloved crunchy corn syrup-based concoction is Sweehearts.

In the six weeks preceding everyone’s favorite February holiday, NECCO sells an astonishing four million pounds of their classic heart-shaped confection printed with sweet phrases like “Be Mine.”

With room for a maximum of five letters on the top line and four on the bottom, it takes some creativity to get it right. Here’s a list of retired Sweetheart sayings for your amusement:

  1. DIG ME
  2. HOT CHA
  3. SAUCY BOY
  4. GIRL POWER
  5. OH YOU KID
  6. WHY NOT
  7. GROOVY
  8. COOL DUDE
  9. MY, SUCH EYES
  10. FAX ME
  11. HEP CAT
  12. TELL ME
  13. YOU ARE LATE
  14. 1-800 CUPID
  15. [PEACE SIGN]
  16. YEAH RIGHT
  17. OH BOY
  18. YOU ROCK
  19. LET’S READ
  20. YOU ARE GAY

This year on Valentine’s Day, look for the words UR HOT, TEXT ME, and LOML (that’s: Love of My Life) in the trail of Sweethearts leading to your boudoir.
