Necco Wafers

My grandparents used to bring these as a treat when they visited me. I wasn’t really fan of them but I didn’t have the heart to tell them my dislike for them.

There is undoubtedly a love/hate relationship with this candy. This Reddit post is just one example where you’ll find people giving their thoughts on this polarizing candy. “Chalky”, “Dry”, and “Poison Flavor” or just a few of the negative words used to describe Necco Wafers. However, there are certainly many people with a lot of positive things to say about them as well.

They are small, disk-shaped candies that come in an assortment of pastel colors with different flavors. The eight flavors include lemon, lime, orange, clove, cinnamon, wintergreen, licorice, and chocolate. Necco Wafers are known for their unique chalky and powdery texture.
