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:

Necco - Sweethearts - Mummy Hearts UPC Code - 2013

Necco – Sweethearts – Mummy Hearts UPC Code – 2013

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!
