NECCO

For R.M.B.

Looks like NECCO remains independent. Founded in 1847! The very packaging of the assorted wafers product is very old-fashioned and nostaglic; Mary Jane, too. The Wikipedia entry says that NECCO is the oldest “continuously operating” candy company in the United States, and that in April 2004 the Necco building at 250 Massachusetts Ave in Cambridge was occupied by Novartis.

Lemonheads are made by Ferrara-Pan, not NECCO.
