NECCO, the affectionately adored candy company based in Revere and maker of tasty conversation hearts, is peddling something other than sugar this Valentine's season. Boston magazine caught wind of the company's limited edition set of solid 24 karat gold "Sweethearts," four hearts weighing a half ounce each for a total of $20,000. Yup, that much. The website encourages interested buyers to call (781) 485-4518 for more information.
