NECCO has proudly been producing delicious sweets for our fans since 1847, and we love to hear back from them on their ideas and entertaining suggestions for all of our candies. It’s always exciting to receive input from creative minds who have fun visions for us.
Recently, a design class from the International Academy of Design & Technology in Michigan was tasked by their professor to redesign the iconic packaging of our classic NECCO Wafers for their class project. The students embraced this project and put their own wonderfully artistic spin on revamping a classic.
Now, don’t you worry; we won’t be changing the wrapper that you all love to tear into so dearly!! But, it’s refreshing to see what these young fans have imagined up. The exciting colors and packaging styles are boldly creative and a twist from traditional styles we’ve seen!
Here are the three cool and wonderfully imaginative creations these talented students came up with:
Amazing work by all!

Can you believe it’s Thanksgiving already? And before we know it, we’ll be rushing around picking up everything we need for the holidays. Many of us venture out the day after Thanksgiving, a day affectionately known as Black Friday, and try to scoop up as many gifting deals as possible. At NECCO, we couldn’t resist jumping in on the fun! In fact, we might be having the SWEETest Black Friday of them all!
We all know since it’s November that we have to deal with the biting cold, especially in the early hours of Black Friday as we repeatedly rush from the car to the store and to every subsequent shop. [Unless you're lucky to be in one of the warmer states, of course! =) ] To help deal with the temperature, we often imagine ourselves some where warmer and perhaps, even Tropical.
That’s why this Black Friday, on Twitter, we will be giving away FIVE cases (24 rolls in each one) of our newest, soon-to-be released candy: Tropical NECCO Wafers! It’s a bold and refreshing twist on our classic Assorted Wafers! The flavors included are Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Mango, Banana, Lime, and Coconut!

Monday evening, NECCO had the pleasure of appearing as one of the select few vendors at EMARC’s 18th Annual Tucker Gala held at the lovely Peabody Marriot! EMARC is a wonderful charity organization which provides programs and support to both people with developmental disabilities and also their families. They strive to empower these individuals and help them build better lives.
We were extremely fortunate to have been invited to have a table right outside the ballroom at the event. Alongside many other local Massachusetts companies, we served treats to all of the wonderful attendees throughout the evening.
We brought a mix of our many candies, from Sky Bar to Slap Stix to NECCO Wafers and most everything in between! Throughout the night, the guests shared wonderful stories about their lifetime experiences with NECCO candies. It was a pleasure to be greeted frequently with bright smiles and happy memories!
While we reminded guests that we proudly still make all of their childhood favorites like Mary Janes and Candy Buttons, we also took this time to introduce some new NECCO initiatives!
To satisfy each attendee’s sweet tooth, we brought along one of our newest candies: Tropical NECCO Wafers. It was so great to see the excitement that the not-yet-released candy created as guests reacted to the bold, fruity flavors. We even had several repeat customers come back to our table for a second [and third ] sample! We cannot wait for all of our fans to get to try them soon!
In addition to our Tropical NECCO Wafers, we also brought along some samples of our classic assorted NECCO Wafers and Sweethearts… but with a catch. =) These particular candies had some extra special text printed on them, such as “Tucker Gala” and “Emarc,” to display our newest venture: customized candies!! In one week, on November 12th, we will be launching a new web-store exclusively for customizing NECCO Wafers and Sweethearts with both print and some imagery: a perfect gift for so many occasions. More info will be released soon; we are very excited!
Again, we were so happy to participate in EMARC’s Tucker Gala, a time honored tradition which benefits such a wonderful organization that positively impacts our community through its hard work and caring initiatives. We are fortunate to have a relationship with this organization, and we are looking forward to the future!
