I had to take a break from sampling because frankly I went into sugar overload!
So now that I am back, the first thing I decided to taste today was the new Necco Smoothies flavor ... Those of you who grew up in New England I am SURE are familiar with Necco Wafers and its manufacturer, New England Confectionery Company. Those of you outside the confines of the North East may not be so familiar.
The company has been around since 1847 and until recently, their wafer candies tasted like they had been untouched in 150 years.
While some people liked the chalky, "classic" looking candies, many people (including myself) weren't terribly fond of them - despite my love for the company.
That's all changed now!
With their new flavor, Necco Smoothies I am once again a fan!
Instead of the classic lemon (yellow), orange (orange), lime (green), clove (purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink), licorice (black), and chocolate (brown), Smoothies features blueberry (blue), banana caramel (yellow), tropical (white), peach (orange) and strawberry cream (pink).
Heather and I both LOVED the banana, but thought the peach was a surprise, it wasn't bad ... just sort of tasted out of place at the end of our roll. For some reason, our roll was pretty evenly distributed, but at the end it had 3 peach right next to each other.
