I've never been a fan. In fact, even putting it in the "candy" category is a stretch for me. But some people go crazy for these.

The company that makes Necco Wafers said they will permanently close their factory on May 6th. UNLESS someone buys it and keeps it going. But in the meantime, candy stores that sell them are stocking up.

The good news is, Necco Wafers don't go bad, so if you love them and you want to stock up, you can REALLY stock up. But maybe this will take a turn kind of like Twinkies did a few years ago. We thought we had lost them forever, and then someone saved the day.

I won't be stocking up. More for you.
