NECCO Candies Making a Comeback

Fans of NECCO (New England Confectionery Company) candies grieved when the America-based company shut its doors in July 2018 due to bankruptcy. Candy lovers of the nostalgic favorites such as NECCO Wafers, Clark Bars and Candy Buttons had hope restored when two Ohio candy companies bought the rights to get those favorites back on the shelves this year. Dorscher Candy Store of Cincinnati put Candy Buttons back on the market, and Spangler Candy of Bryan, Ohio, will revive NECCO Wafers, sweetheart conversation hearts and Canada Mints, but now that date is up in the air. Spangler CEO, Kirk Vashaw, says the company is working on perfecting recipes, and ramping up production. “We are committed to making sure these brands meet consumer expectations when they re-enter the market. Doing it right takes time.”
