Today’s post is a direct follow-up to last year’s CountdownToHalloween entry where I covered Necco’s super-cool Batwing Wafers. You see, in 2013 not only did Necco introduce of that fun seasonal product but they also wowed with the premiere of their Mummy Hearts, a Sweethearts-branded conversation heart just for Halloween!
I was a big fan of the style of Necco’s Batwing Wafers and I definitely dig Mummy Hearts. Offering the classic conversation heart shape, Mummy Hearts feature Halloween-themed messages printed on them.
More than just fun Halloween messages though, these Sweethearts Mummy Hearts further stand out from their Valentine siblings with a decidedly unique and modern flavor assortment: toasted marshmallow, hot chocolate, grape and candy corn. Yum!
The packaging for Mummy Hearts is fantastic and a joy to behold. I shouldn’t be surprised at it was designed by the same guy who created their Batwing Wafers packages: Necco’s talented packaging designer Geoff Bloom. Here it is:
Look at how much creativity they put into this one. As a few of my favorite modern packages have incorporated in recent years, they even brought some fun to the UPC code:
As much as I love these already, I think I would be over-the-moon if they decided to do a release them in the classic Sweethearts Conversation Hearts box packaging. I’m crossing my fingers for 2015!
And that’s everything for today’s post and a look at a new favorite, Necco’s Mummy Hearts! See you next time!
