The New England Confectionery Company (NECCO) makes more than 8 billion candy hearts every year to keep up with the demand for the sweet treat.  Every day from late February through mid-January, around 100,000 pounds of conversation candy hearts are made.  The entire amount produced during this time sells out in just six weeks.
