Sweets & Snacks 2014!

Last week, NECCO appeared at the annual Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago with a big, bright booth right in the middle of all action.

We proudly displayed our brands on the booth’s five towering kiosks, with all packaging variations of the candies spread throughout. (Check out NECCO.com to catch a glimpse of our full product line!)

As was the case last year, our kiosk that showcased special historical tokens from over the years created quite a buzz with guests. Some of our sweet artifacts on display included original early 20th century NECCO Wafer and Canada Mints packaging and a sales ledger from 1901 as well as a plethora of vintage photographs of our proud milestones. This kiosk, which so wonderfully showcased our passion and innovation over our 167 years of existence, was definitely a fan (and company) favorite.

Attendees who stopped by even had the opportunity to sample our Junior NECCO Wafers in all three varieties: Assorted, Chocolate and Tropical!

2014 also marks quite an important date in the life of our beloved Mary Jane, as it is the year she turns 100! To commemorate such an important milestone, we also had special goodie bags to educate attendees about the prominent past of Mary Jane and also her bright future of limitless possibilities for this special chew.

In addition to our main booth, we also participated in the New Product Showcase, where hundreds of companies have the opportunity to display their exciting new sweet treats. This year we stood out among the rest by showcasing the power of our popular Sweethearts brand and displayed three of its newest variations: Hot & Cool Hearts, Mummy Hearts and Color Your Own Pop Eggs!

Over 600 domestic and international confectionery and snack companies appeared, filling every corner of the massive McCormick Expo Center with beloved favorites and some seriously sweet innovations. It was a wonderful time to view the best products in the industry and see all of the companies’ hard work come to fruition. There was even an amazing chalk artist on hand at the event to showcase how candy had truly taken over Chicago!

Overall, with over 600 companies in attendance and tens of thousands of people from the industry in attendance, the Sweets and Snacks Expo was undoubtedly a great experience for NECCO! Until next year, Chicago! Our sweet tooth already can’t wait for Sweets & Snacks 2015!

2013 PRU BOO!

PruBoo

This Sunday, October 27th, NECCO will proudly be appearing at The Shops at the Prudential Center’s annual PRU BOO in Boston!

The PRU BOO is a fun family event where children can trick-or-treat in many of the Prudential Center’s stores, filling up their bags with a great mix of yummy NECCO candies! Trick-or-treat bags are available for a small donation of $4 and all proceeds from the day directly benefit The Home for Little Wanderers charity, an organization whose mission is to ensure the healthy behavioral, emotional, social and educational development and physical well-being of children and families living in at-risk circumstances.

Find out the complete details about this great event on the Prudential Center’s website.

In addition to providing the sweets for trick-or-treating, NECCO is also excited to be participating again in an exciting craft event where we will be making these cute little NECCO Wafer Pumpkins and Mummys!

There will be several other great companies in attendance to participate in the exciting festivities of the day, so if you’re in the Boston area, dress up the kids and head to the Prudential Center for some spooky fun!

NECCO is so proud to sponsor such a wonderful family event for our Boston community and can’t wait to see everyone there on Sunday!
