  1. I have a couple of very cute pictures of a granddaughter using necco wafers to decorate her gingerbread house in 1997. These wafers were sometimes used for a roof, pathway or any part of the gingerbread house.

  2. I am so happy to find you … Necco Wafers are one of my hubby’s favorites … my BFF loves the chocolate ones … sometimes hard to find, so we snatch them up when we see them! I am a chocolate bar person … love Clark and Skybar. You cover all candy lovers … thank you for finding me :)

    • Liz, sorry we had not seen this comment initially. We just wanted to respond with our own thanks!! Those are such sweet words; we appreciate it! Looking forward to your posts as well! =)

  3. Thank you for visiting, and following my blog~I LOVE Neccos wafers. I didn’t realize Neccos brand made so many candies, including the Haviland mints. Haven’t seen those for years.

  4. I just purchased my year supply of Mary Jane’s Peanut Butter Kisses, and I just wanted some history on them…Like how long have they have been producing them….what inspired them? The works….I love them, and they are my favorite candy, as a kid and now as an adult….My “Orange & Black” wax paper wrapped delicious treats are just the BEST!!! Thank you for another unwrapped surprise!! Em, Em, Good!!!

  5. Oh my goodness! I’d forgotten all about these wonderful candies…I loved them as a kid, and now I’m looking forward to my next trip to the store for a little treat! Thanks for the follow, and the memory!

  6. I wait every year for Valentine season for sweethearts. I like them all but I LOVE the blue ones!! They are much more flavorful than the rest and slightly softer always, compared to the other color flavor choices. I need a way to purchase just BLUE!! Can we arrange it? Will you ever sell them by color? Why not? We all have our favorites but I am OBSESSED with blue sweethearts!!!!!!! Let’s get this solved!

    Thanks sweethearts!

    • Hi Marsha! Thanks for the sweet comment and kind words about Sweethearts! It’s great to hear you love our current flavor lineup! Unfortunately due to our production process, it’s not possible to buy a box or bag of just one color of Sweethearts. However, our new custom printing service at http://mynecco.com allows for you to print your own messages on Sweethearts and you can opt to have only one color! Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you again for being an awesome Sweethearts fan! =)
