Necco Facebook

There was an article online saying Necco Wafers are one of America’s LEAST favorite Halloween candy. That surprised me — I think they taste like childhood! I still like them. Sugar is sugar! But I never see them for sale outside of Halloween so I decided to look it up. Check it out!

  • Necco stands for New England Confectionery Company
  • They’ve been in production since 1847
  • They were a popular treat with Civil War soldiers
  • Every package contains the same 8 flavors
  • The name hasn’t changed in 100 years!
  • In 2009 the formula was changed to allow more natural flavors and sweeteners
  • Because of massive protests, the formula was CHANGED BACK in 2011!
