Necco Wafers, for example. I despise Necco Wafers. Wow, I’d love some candy, but I also want to chew on a piece of chalk. They’re the worst! I suppose they’re great if you love the taste of multi-colored nothing. I would likely them to eating Tums antacids, but I actually enjoy those to an extent. I used to work at a grocery store in high school and every year we would set up for Halloween and every year we would box up all the Necco Wafers and ship them right back to the 9th circle of hell, which is where I’m assuming the Necco corporation headquarters are located. I doubt any have been made since the 1920’s. They simply recycle the same batch year after year, but nobody notices.
I remember vividly, what my candy surplus would look like 2-3 days after Halloween. I would spread it all out looking for one last Twix Bar, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, or Charleston Chew only to find a seemingly never ending quantity of Necco Wafers, Bit-o-Honey’s, and those stupid strawberry hard candies that carry no brand name.
What were you favorite and least favorite Halloween Candies?
