With February being the month of love with both Valentine’s Day and a leap year, Vickie and Jeff decided to visit Loveheart Cental AKA sweet makers, Swizzels Matlow in New Mills.
Lovehearts have long been a favourite with generations of romantics. People have grown up with the iconic sweets that are printed with simple declarations of affection. So we went to find out how they’ve changed over time and how the famous Swizzels brand has adapted.
We heard stories from people who’d met through the Lovehearts messages. We also found out how working on the production line leads to more romantic couplings than usual.
