Originally created in 1847, the candy's name is an acronym for the New England Confectionery Company, the company that created it. The disk-shaped candies wrapped in wax paper are instantly recognizable to candy aficionados. the original formula remains unchanged for seven of the eight original flavors. Lemon (yellow), lime (green), orange (orange), clove (light purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink) and licorice (dark grey) will taste the same, but there were minor improvements made to chocolate (brown) to add a richer cocoa flavor.
The same wax paper is also being used to package the candy, so Necco lovers will still feel that sense of nostalgia every time they grab a roll.
