NECCO Sweethearts Candies Contest {and a giveaway!}

Valentine's Day is one of my very favorite holidays of the year! There's something about all things HEARTS that I love.

Sweethearts heart candies from NECCO are one of the staples of Valentine's Day in my book. I grew up looking forward to them every year. I was excited when I got a box in my treat bag at school. I just loved them! I still do!

Did you know they've been around for one HUNDRED years? For real. No wonder they're yummy! They've had years and years to perfect those little heart-shaped yummies. {I wonder what the messages on the first Sweethearts were. Now we have sayings like, text me and UR GR8--is UR GR8 one of them? It should be. LOL}

This year NECCO Sweethearts came up with a fabulous idea! Each box is black and white so your children can use their imaginations and color their own box of candies. What a great way to let the kids get creative. {There's also a contest! Keep reading.}

NECCO sent me a case of Sweethearts for my kiddos to "color their own". What better way to get them to ALL sit at the table together and do the same project than to bribe them let them eat the candy when they've finished!

Here's each of their finished boxes. Jake's says #WCW and #MCM. {Do you do social media?? They mean Woman Crush Wednesday and Man Crush Monday. His logic to add #MCM is that these candies are for boys AND girls.} Jonah's says Read Your Bible. {Way to be straight forward!} Jett's says Love God. {Sweet boy!} McKinley's is colored oh, so pretty!
