(FOX BUSINESS) – Valentine’s Day is going to be a little less sweet this year.

Sweethearts, the iconic and popular little heart-shaped candy that features sayings such as “True Love” and “First Kiss,” won’t be on store shelves this year due to a change in ownership.

The production halt, which was first reported by CNBC, is because the candy’s new owner Spangler Candy—the makers of Dum-Dum lollipops and candy canes—did not have enough time to start production after acquiring the brand last September.

Spangler purchased the popular V-Day sweet along with Necco wafers from Round Hill Investments after its original producer, New England Confectionary Company was sold to the firm in bankruptcy court last July.
