Conversational Controversy & Giveaway


So I just bought my first bag of conversational hearts for the 2011 valentine season I opened them up with anticipation digging through the bag looking for my favorite colors white and yellow.  Ahhh sweet success!  I found a yellow one I pop into my mouth and continued the frantic search for my ultimate favorite the white ones.  I soon realize, just about at the same time that the flavor of the yellow heart is registering to my brain that UGH!!!! The Necco people changed the flavor of their conversational hearts from traditional although sort of indefinable flavors to their new fruity flavors. YUCK!!!  So I was thinking that I would write to them and tell them about how badly they missed the mark on this one.  Then I was thinking that maybe I’m alone in this opinion and that there are now a whole lot more satisfied customers…so here is my question to you * FYI (you can still get the the traditional flavor)

Which do you like better the Traditional Conversational Heart flavors or the New Nasty fruity flavors??

This also brings us to the giveaway part of the program.  I will be giving away just in time for Valentines Day a big ol’ box of Chocolates (okay maybe not the coolest giveaway ever but hey it’s chocolate and it’s free)  to 1 lucky winner. Here are the rules

I have not tried this new fruity kind but I want to have my original white and yellow favorites!! :( They must have original still at the store?? Maybe you just bought fruity without realizing it???

I'm not really a candy-eating person, so I can't really think of what either version tastes like. But, I voted for the traditional because there wasn't a "no opinion" option.

Conversation hearts so not my thing...I have a standing rule when it comes to candy/dessert - if there's no chocolate it's not worth eating!
