According to USA Today Necco went out of business in 2018.  They were the ones who made the conversation hearts. After operating for more than 100 years they folded, they're also the company that produced Mary Janes, Necco Wafers, and Clark Bars.

There is good news though! The company was sold to Spangler Candy Co in September, however that was not enough time to produce a large number of Sweethearts in time for Valentine's Day. So unfortunately this year they have to sit out, but they'll be back in 2020!
