Necco Candy Wafers Are Back After a 2-Year Disappearance
Necco produced its iconic wafers in the USA from 1847 to 2018, making it one of the oldest candy brands in existence when it was purchased by Spangler Candy in 2018.
That’s right around the time that Necco Wafers abruptly disappeared from store shelves. And now these colorful, disk-shaped candies are returning at a time when we all seem to be craving comfort in the form of nostalgic foods!
Necco Wafers will make their triumphant return in eight classic flavors – lemon, lime, orange, clove, cinnamon, wintergreen, licorice, and chocolate. The original Necco Waffer recipe has remained unchanged with the exception of chocolate, which now has a richer cocoa flavor.
These nostalgic candies will start appearing in major drug stores this June, and then other retailers in July. Head on over to the Spangler Candy website to see the complete list of stores where you’ll be able to purchase them when they roll out!
