Happy New Years, and some more on Necco(r) Chocolate Wafers, and 3rd.Anniv.

Well, it has been another year, happy 2018, and 3rd ANNIVERSARY OF this blog..(I was influenced by Cybele May of, nice shout out..) and now Neccos..again. Chocolate ones.

I was buying (TWO bucks? >:<( at one of the remaining 5 and 10s (despite what Wrong-a-pedia says) known as Kirby's, of Necco all-chocolate wafers (yet again) and enjoyed them. Someone on Bonethefish, said "it's like Tootsie rolls being Lindt chocolate"(WHOA!!!!). I think they're excelle;lnt for cupcakes and yogurt toppings, every bit as much as by themselves,a s well as for other uses. I'd love to save me some Necco wafers of any kind..I love me some Necco wafers (again ,of any kind.) As Sally Field would say on "Gidget";Toodles! (And we can count on her having some with best gal pal Larue (Lynn Winter..))

Also, hope you enjoyed the past Holidays, Easter candy, Hallowe'en candy,etc.

Watch How PEEPS® Are Made

Man Eats 200 Peeps in One Sitting (World Record)

Just Me and my Peeps

PeepsTM candy marshmallow were invented back in 1953 by Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based, Just Born, Inc. and have been a longtime staple of Easter.

The candy has crystallised sugar crystals on top of yellow marshmallows shaped like bunnnies or ducks. Simple as that. In later years, by the 1960s, they expanded
into a major industry of their own. In the last several decades, they've been in all imaginable colours and shapes:
Purple duck
Green Bunnies
Brown Poops (just kidding!)
and so on.

Even sour (YECH) Peeps.

While Just Born Inc. has gone into also Hot Tamales and Mike and Ike, the sugar coated 'mallows are their trademarks and most popular candy. Today,
you can find the marshmallows (like "normal" rather than Circus Peanuts) year-round, but still especially at Easter.

Here's some videos..

Happy 170th, (sometime this year) Necco!!

This year, marks a happy, unique anniversary for all candy lovers and Americans..not just the trademark eponymous product but company, Necco Wafers!

CERTAINLY the oldest candy in America, as I've so BLOGGED before, it was a longtime 19th favorite, with a (apprently) very sparing (few) flavors, but it became in 1910 available in eight flavors.

And the rest, as the longtime radio entertainer/historic commentator Paul Harvey (whom I am sure had that story in his library and told it on raido many times)
might have said..
is...the rest...of the story.

Those distinctive and in some cases totally mis-colored flavors for Necco Wafers:


*cinnamon (white)

*clove (violet)




*wintergreen (pink)

In 2009-2011, as many know, the candy went all natural to exclude lime.

More in the label below. Also search on Google for information on this (happily discontinued since 2011) disaster.

Many stores still have 'em..usually for 1 dollar for each typical 2 inch roll, even less..
