Something fun, for a change! I like listening to NPR’s (National Public Radio, 91.5 FM) “Whadya Know” program and found this out today. NECCO wafers were made by the New England Candy Company (get it? NECCO?) beginning in the 1840s!! That means that Civil War soldiers enjoyed them (that was part of their trivia question, which is how I learned about this). I just thought that was pretty cool – we’re eating candy that President Lincoln might have had, too.
