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!
