Necco Wafers – All Natural Candy

Looking for all natural candy this Valentine’s Day? Necco wafers have gone all natural.

Remember these wafers from your childhood? Necco has revamped their candy using red beet juice, purple cabbage, cocoa powder, paprika and turmeric to replace the artificial ingredients that had been flavoring and coloring the wafers for years.
Of the eight original Necco wafers, lime did not get through the makeover. So there are now seven flavors and colors: chocolate, lemon, orange, clove, wintergreen, cinnamon and licorice. The chocolate wafer, however, now comes in four varieties: dark, milk, mocha and white.

We received a package of the new natural wafers to try out. I think I’m the only one that liked them. My son didn’t really like them.”It’s not as good as sour gummy worms.” And my daughter, she’s two, liked to get the package open, take them out lick them, then place them all over the place. Yuck!

However, I thought they were great! I especially liked the chocolate varieties. Yumm.

I did receive free product for this review, however it did not affect my review.
