A Fat Free Candy
Since 1847, Americans and people around the world have enjoyed NECCO Wafers®.
New England Confectionery Company's long-standing success in the candy business is closely related to the enduring popularity of the company's core product - the NECCO Wafer®. The NEW All-Natural, fat-free wafer available in seven flavors, a roll of NECCO Wafers® is a candy favorite for all times.
In 1847, a young English immigrant, Oliver Chase, invented the first American candy machine, a lozenge cutter. After initial success selling his new candy, he and his brother, Silas Edwin, founded Chase and Co., which became the pioneer member of the New England Confectionery family.
The original recipe for the NECCO Wafer® was made in eight flavors: orange, lemon, lime, clove, chocolate, cinnamon, licorice, and wintergreen. The ingredients were simply sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, gums, colorings and flavorings.
In 1913, explorer Donald MacMillan took NECCO Wafers® on his Arctic explorations, using them for nutrition and as rewards for Eskimo children. In the 1930's, Admiral Byrd took 2 � tons of NECCO Wafers® to the South Pole, practically a pound a week for each of his men during their two-year stay in the Antarctic.
The U.S. Government requisitioned a major portion of the production of NECCO Wafers® during World War II. The candy doesn't melt and is practically indestructible during transit, making it perfect for shipping overseas to the troops.
In 2009 the iconic NECCO Wafers® are now All Natural! Just in time for people searching for a better-for-you treat in the New Year, the New England Confectionery Company is rolling out new All Natural Necco Wafers® made with only natural flavors and colors. The 162-year-old candy is the first national candy brand to go all natural, removing artificial colors and flavors while keeping the same great taste.
