Do you remember these sugary love hearts? Sweethearts, conversation lollies, call them what you like but they were a bit of fun when I was growing up. Boys and girls who had managed to overcome the boy or girl germs shared these or left them in places where their latest “crush” would find them – ah, those were the days!
Did you know that 90 odd percent of the world’s supply of these particular sweets are made right here in Queensland? Just 169km south east of Brisbane in the Darling Downs region you’ll find Pittsworth Confectionery. This is the same company that makes the candy Easter eggs that you’re probably already seeing in your local supermarket.
