Little hearts that carry big words (KTRK)

They date back to 1866 and they have a completely guilt-free tiny little three calories per candy, but there's so much more to Sweetheart Conversation Hearts.

A safe bet for your grade-school Valentine's Day exchange, the beauty of the sweets are in their timeless appearance only once a year.

Created by the Necco Company in the era of President Johnson, these candies are anything but stale. The most popular phrases are "Kiss Me", "Marry Me" and "Be True."

But the company keeps things fresh, adding new phrases each year, along the lines of "Tweet Me", "LOL", and "Bestie."

According to the Reader's Digest, the hearts' sayings follow themes by year.
