REVERE, Mass. – So tonight we bought some Necco Wafers, one of the classic American candies. And we were shocked when we looked at it when we saw new packaging. Gone is the classic Necco that you see in the picture below. In its place is a jazzy package that looks like junk.
Furthermore, some of them taste different. Did they pay someone to do this? Is this a joke? April Fools is two months’ away!
The pink one tastes all wrong?
Please do not change things that are perfection. When you change things that are perfection, they are, by definition, no longer perfect. They are imperfect.
The packaging is bad, but it is not as much a worry as the packaging can be changed back. What is worrisome is the taste issue.
WBZ has a report on the taste and new recipe. Apparently they have gone all natural, after much research. Can we please stop with the all natural when it screws things up. Or introduce a new “natural” version but don’t screw up the old one? There is no reason why this has to be either/or.
Do other folks sense something is amiss? I will not be buying them any more.
