When I was a kid one of the candies that was always a treat to get and one that we didn't get very often was NECCOs. Those delightful little sugary wafer candies. I always remember liking the black ones the best. Mmm, black licorice (almost as good as black jelly beans). Since moving to Massachusetts I've learned that NECCO stands for New England Confectionery COmpany. And that their factory is in Cambridge. Unfortunately they don't give factory tours, nor do they have an outlet store. Which is a shame. Yesterday one of  my patrons came up and gave me a little mini sized tube of NECCOs. It made me so happy. And the black ones are still my favorite.
