Well you're in luck! As in this huge episode we cover the history of what was one of the oldest candy companies in the United States, New England Confectionery Company or NECCO for short.
Hear how the company all began by a pharmacist in a drug store in Boston making lozenges in 1847 to one of the largest candy companies in its hey day and how it all came down...and how its candy was rebirthed.
Also, nowhere else will you hear about the mystery of the lost 9th Necco wafer flavor. In this episode DJ Glowing Ice will dig deep and attempt to uncover the lost flavor to solve the mystery once and for all.
