For valentines, a change of hearts

You'll still be able to sweet-talk your valentine this year with "Be Mine" and "Be Good" printed candy hearts. But you also will be able to tease your lover with new sayings like "You Rock" and "Let's Do Lunch."

The Conversation Hearts, made by the New England Confectionery Co. since 1902, have added 10 messages, including "Love Me Tender," "I Got U Babe" and "Walk On By" as tributes to popular songs of the past and "1-800 Cupid" and "As If" for the '90s crowd. Other messages: "My Way," "Let It Be," "I Wonder."

And the fat-free treats won't wreck anyone's diet. The small hearts have about 3 calories each and the larger hearts have about 6 calories.
