Confectionery manufacturer Swizzels who produces the iconic British sweets with messages of love ❤️ on, Love Hearts, is giving itself a modern makeover in the form of emojis 💝.
Since their creation in 1954, Love Hearts have undergone a number of transformations 💓 to keep up with ever-changing language 💬. Outdated messages which have been dropped include, “Hey Daddio” and “Far Out” which were everyday sayings in the fifties and sixties but are no longer use 📆. In more recent times the UK has seen the additions of “Email Me” 📧 in the nineties and “Tweet Me” 🐦 in the noughties! Emojis were the next most natural step 👟.
If you’re worried we’ve lost the words 📚 on Love Hearts altogether, don’t fret. Brand Manager, Claire Lee, said: “Emojis 😀 are one of the newest and most popular ways to communicate 📝, so adding them to our more traditional messages allows Love Hearts to appeal to both the younger 👧 and older 👴 generations.”
11 of Britain’s favourite emojis will be added to packs of Love Hearts 💟, including the standard smiley 🙂, crying with laughter 😂, wink face 😉, kissing 😘, tongue out 😜, crying 😢, heart eyes 😍 and the sunglasses 😎 emoji.
