Iconic sweets brand is making a major change for the Coronation – but you'll have to be quick | The Sun

SWEET-TOOTHED shoppers may notice an iconic sweets brand has made a major change to its packaging – but you'll need to be quick.

Love Hearts, which are made by sweet manufacturer Swizzles, have undergone a huge makeover to mark the King's Coronation.

The sweets are known for having romantic phrases written on them, including "kiss me" and "true love".

But 200,000 sweets have been made with the words "King", "Charles" and "Congrats" emblazoned on them to mark the royal occasion.

Swizzles is selling the Coronation sweets on its website for £5.99 as a gift box, which includes five packets of Love Hearts and a commemorative token.

The commemorative sweets are much pricier than the usual offering, which cost 25p at both Tesco and Asda.

You will also need to factor in the extra cost for postage, which is £3.12.

But if you're a royal fan and don't mind forking out for the special edition sweets, you'll need to act quickly.

The Coronation Love Hearts are only available for a limited time and once they're gone, they're gone.
