Necco Wafers

Recommended Posts

Received a roll of Necco wafers and visited their web site to see if I could still enjoy them.

The question was in their FAQs

Which Necco products are Gluten Free?

We make the following products which do not contain gluten from wheat, rye, oats or barley: Necco Wafers, Mary Janes, Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses, Sweethearts Conversation Hearts (Valentines only), Canada Mint & Wintergreen Lozenges, Haviland Thin Mints and Candy Stix

In addition, Clark Bars, Skybars, Haviland Peppermint & Wintergreen Patties, Necco Candy Eggs (Easter), Talking Pumpkins (Halloween), Squirrel Nut Caramels and Squirrel Nut Zippers, Banana Split and Mint Julep Chews, ULTRAMINTS are also gluten free.

Yummy! I love Necco wafers. Except for the black ones. Those I throw away or try to pawn off on the kids. :lol:

I never liked the black licorice ones either but the clove ones are great. Their site lists all the flavors too!

Oh yeah.......ya gotta pitch the black ones. The brown (chocolate), whites, yellow and orange are the best - in that order. :P

I used to play Communion with them as a child. :rolleyes:

Send the black ones to me. They are my favorite. Black licorice was one of my favorite candies before going gluten free.

They said the Valentines day hearts are gluten-free too!

With my last name that is always the big holiday around here!

I love the candy hearts never had the necco wafers. Thanks for the info.
