Bacon’s Show and Tell

30 Sep

Today for Bacon’s Show and Tell we are highlighting a special treat you got while growing up.  This is great!

When mom was little many, many, many, many moons ago – snorts, her parents would always give her Necco candy wafers.  Necco’s are thin little wafers that came in all kinds of flavors.  Mom’s favorite was the assortment followed closely by chocolate – yummy!  Mom’s mom and dad would buy these as a special treat.  They were tiny, came in a roll and were pretty cheap considering.  It was the perfect sugary treat.

To this day, if mom and dad are out and about and see them, daddy continues the tradition and buys mom a roll – ❤ sweet huh?

They started making Necco wafers in 1847 – of course that was WAY beyond mom’s time… I think – snorts.  According to the Necco web page, today they make over 630 million Necco wafers a year!  That’s enough placed edge to edge would go around the world twice.  Isn’t that amazing!?

Have you ever had one of these?  If you ever see them in the store, we highly recommend them.  I myself have tried them and find them delicious – and crunchy!

    My Mom says she’s never had a Necco…… fact she really didn’t have little treats much as a kid…..except when she went to the movies she ALWAYS got a box of “Good-N-Plenty” !!

    Hugs, Sammy

      Those are most excellent as well Cousin. Necco’s were very, very cheap in the day – and kind of still are today. They were awesome and brings such cherished memories to my mom. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh my goodness, I remember Necco candy! We used to get it all the time when my sister and I were being sneaky (as in away from mom’s healthy eye)!

      Mom was born with the dinosaurs – snorts. She remembers the first time she got a roll. She thought she had hit the lottery! She made that little roll last for over a week just to stretch the goodness. XOXO – Bacon

    Ditto whoever said they taste like Tums or Rolaids. Or possibly what chalk would taste like.

    I won’t touch those things. Guess that is more for y’all! 🙂

      Yummy – mom is licking her lips thinking of all the more she has – snorts. Of course, you know as a child everything was delicious that contained sugar. Tastes have matured but there’s something about seeing them and bringing mom such memories… or so she says – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Hey Bacon, I remember seeing the Necco factory (from the outside–when it was in Boston). It was soooo cool! Unlike Hershey, they don’t do tours (according to the website). PS, I also went inside the Hershey factory when I was a kid. Wow, maybe that’s where my choco-love started, come to think of it. PPS, does this mean you’re thinking Halloween already?! PPS, yes, I’m working on your story. I have another deadline first but yours is next, no worries!!!

    • PigLove

      Oh yes my friend. I *always* think of Halloween. It takes me all year to find my delicious stories to tell for October’s 31 days of Spook. I do hope all of my friends here love them. I’ve worked really hard picking some great ones this year. And yes, I have your date saved and ready to go when you get yours ready 🙂 Can’t wait to read it my friend. XOXO – Bacon
