In 2018, the New England Confectionery Co., or Necco, the company that made the Sweethearts candy was sold in May to the Spangler Candy Co., makers of Dum Dums lollipops. Necco had gone bankrupt after 171 years in the candy business, and closed their plant last March -- so candy production didn't make it in time for Valentine's Day 2019.
