    Oh noooooo! I LOVE NECCO wafers! So they taste like pepto bizmal & urinal “mints”, I still love them. I am ever on the search for the elusive all chocolate pack. Love the story though. Thanks for the memories, I’m on the search for some now.
    Keep em coming.
    Thanks again

    …no I have never tasted the urinal mints but I bet they taste just like the green NECCO’s…

  2. Never mind NECCO Wafers. What about NECCO Sky Bars? A candy bar split into 4 sub-sections, each with its own filling (fudge, vanilla, caramel and peanut). It always puzzled me—a candy bar that just couldn’t decide what it wanted to be. I still find them in stores from time to time.

    I guess if you don’t have a sweet tooth, there’s no hope for you. Had you not said that, I would have supposed that you had had a bad experience with Pepto Bismol when you were a kid.
    Of course they aren’t candy, but I like those orange baby aspirins too!
    Sugar used to be my favorite food group. Necco Wafers and Conversation Hearts were some of my favorite sugar delivery devices.
    It’s amazing how much candy or certain foods can remind you of your childhood or better days.
