If someone were to craft those classic little heart candies specifically for Jersey valentines … what would they say?  I've rounded up a few ideas:

Clearly, this conversation heart would be hoarded and proudly displayed by Jersey Girls, year-round.


For those unfamiliar, that would be the Cheesequake rest stop along the Parkway.

As in Bon Jovi from "Livin' On a Prayer". Come to think of it, some Jersey rockstar lyrics seem to have been made for conversation hearts.

The *obvious* Bon Jovi reference just had to be made here.

You could sprinkle these hearts (if they existed) into your Wawa hoagie, for extra crunch.


Bruuuuce.  A fan favorite line from Springsteen's Rosalita (Come Out Tonight).

Another Springsteen lyric, but from "Thunder Road." This is considerably more romantic than another line we could have gone with: "You ain't a beauty."


Show that south Jersey pride!


A Jersey Shore reference, whether you're inclined to mean Asbury Park, Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant Beach, Ocean City- or somewhere else.


This is totally G-rated, about our gas stations.  You know, no "self-service" in Jersey. Get your mind *out* of the gutter!

Have any good 'Strictly Jersey' conversation hearts?  Please share them below.
