Food World: Necco Wafers Are Back After 2 Year Hiatus
After a two-year hiatus, Necco Wafers are making a comeback!
Spangler Candy Company acquired the Necco Wafers brand after the factory that made the iconic wafers closed back in 2018. The company decided to bring back the Necco Wafers this summer.
The wafers are returning in eight flavors: lemon (yellow), lime (green), orange (orange), clove (light purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink), licorice (dark grey), and chocolate (brown). According to Spangler, seven of the eight flavors were designed to identically match the originals. The chocolate wafers will offer a richer cocoa flavor thanks to a minor improvement in the cooking process.
The Necco Wafers will start rolling out to major drugstores and pharmacies in early June, followed by major retailers throughout the summer.
