Sweethearts Situationships

Situationships are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the younger generations, and the classic Sweethearts candy that we all know, and some of us love, has recently come out with Sweethearts Situationships.   

The classic candy usually has some imperfections with the printings of the cheesy sayings written on the front of them, so Spangler Candy Company has chosen to embrace those impurities by making them intentional and just as unclear as many modern-day relationships.   

Spangler Candy has kept those same cheesy sayings like “kiss me” or “only you,” but now they are a bit harder to read.  

It seems lots of the younger generation is scared of commitment, and situationships are a clear example of this.  A situationship in simple terms is two people who are involved with each other as more than friends but less than boyfriend/ girlfriend – there is no label, and neither person really knows what they are to each other.   

While situationships do check the box for attention that many people are searching for, they are usually not good for long-term.  They create lots of uncertainty and confusion between two people, and when looking for a good long-term relationship, often people want something that is constant and trustworthy.   

Why are so many people opting for a situationship rather than a relationship that is often much healthier for both parties though? 

Everyone loves to have attention and the feeling of being wanted by someone even if that person isn’t fully committed to them, so at least a situationship gets them that rather than nothing at all.  

By Spangler Candy Company making the addition to include a new demographic to their product that would have usually passed on the original sweethearts, or a Valentine’s Day gift altogether, those in a confusing relationship can now add a little humor to the holiday, and show that they care without the added stress that they are gifting something that may be too much.
