We recently attended the candy expo in Chicago and found there are a lot of great nostalgic candies that will be returning within the year. I of course was so excite to find out that my favorite candy I ate as a kid is coming back.
Wacky wafers will be back sometime in the next 6 months. I tried to get a better time frame, but this is all they would share will me. Leaf Brand Candy Company has been purchasing trademarks for many old time candies that have been discontinued.
Wacky wafers were a Willy Wonka candy which was manufactured by Nestle. These were dropped from their line of treats in the early 2000's. They were similar to a giant sweet tart, but flat and were available in many fruit flavors. The flavors I remember the most and of course were my favorite was the Apple, Banana and Watermelon.
I can't wait to get my hands on my first box, which will be mine and I don't plan on sharing. I am pretty anxious to see if they are the same as I remember them to be. As we are able to get more information regarding Wacky Wafers we will update this blog post.
It is so exciting to see that many of these gone , but not forgotten nostalgic candy from our childhoods will be returning. There are many candies available today, however you just get beat the classics.
Not only are the Wacky Wafers returning, but sometime in the next 60 days Astro Pops will also be back and at some point Bonkers.
