Candy Would Be Dandy

“SweetHearts Are Back … And 65% Are Blank!
Iconic SweetHearts conversation hearts are back this year,
but production issues plagued their new manufacturer.
We reviewed the new SweetHearts and found:

•65% had no markings on them at all—completely blank.
•24% had unintelligible misprints.
•8% had partially printed phrases.
•Only 3% had full, well-placed phrases.”

I’m sorry, Dear. It seems there’s been a glitch.
It looks like this year I will have to switch
from SweetHearts to express what you well know.
At 3% the odds are just too low!
