Love Hearts DefinationSource(google.com.pk)
The sweets are small and circular, approximately 19 mm in diameter, and 5 mm in height (including the embossed decorations). Both sides are embossed with a decoration, the rear with a large outline of a heart and the front with the message within an outline of a heart. On the front of the sweet the embossing is highlighted with a red colouring.
The main body of the sweet is coloured in one of the 6 colours - white, yellow, orange, green, purple or red. Especially for the darker red and purple colourings this colouring is somewhat blotchy.
There are many different messages which can be found on the front of the sweet, most of which are love related. The message is written in capitals in a sans serif font of varying size. The font is scaled and sometimes stretched out of proportion to fit the available space.
The clarity of the messages is sometimes compromised, the sweets are of a somewhat crumbly consistency and are prone to chipping. This often removes small sections of the red highlight or small sections of letters, making some messages difficult to read. Some of the longer messages (with the smaller fonts) are also prone to flooding with the red highlight.
The "Just Say No" message has an unclear layout, appearing to read "Justsay No".
Wayne and Coleen Rooney got personalised sweets made up for their wedding in the Summer of 2008 which read "Wayne and Coleen". The first special edition had been done in 1981 to celebrate Princess Diana's wedding.
