After being out of our lives for 2 years, Necco Wafers has announced that they are making a SWEET comeback this upcoming Summer.

"Just when comfort food is experiencing a resurgence, Necco Wafers is back with that very kind of familiar, comfortable feeling we all seem to be craving," said Spangler Candy Company CEO Kirk Vashaw. "We are delighted to bring Necco Wafers back into production and to share in their sweet return with fans old and new."

They are returning with their seven original flavors: Lemon (yellow), lime (green), orange, clove (light purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink) and licorice (dark grey).

According to CNN.com, Necco Wafers should return to drugstore and pharmacy shelves in early June so any day now!
