Sign of The Times

Take a close look at those cute little conversation hearts that are a Valentine’s Day staple. Gone are the cute little sayings of days gone by. There are no more XOXO, SWEET or KISS ME. I don’t think I overlooked them, either. It wasn’t until we had devoured half the bag that I noticed the writing looked different. It was not the traditional stamped font but, a computer type font that caught my attention. Once I looked closer I saw TEXT ME, TTYL and ADORBZ! What?!?! When did this happen? My kids are now teenagers but, I don’t remember these little sweets being so…..non-traditional. I love tradition. I was not expecting to see such a sign of the times in a traditional Valentine’s Day treat. I must say, Brach’s, I am heartbroken.
