In May 2020, the Spangler Candy Company announced that it was bringing back its Necco Wafers after a 2-year hiatus. Naturally, people began asking when the chocolate version would also be making a comeback. Today is the day we have our answer, and the brand has confirmed that they’re returning this season.

While the Necco Wafers — which includes lemon (yellow), lime (green), orange (orange), clove (light purple), cinnamon (white), wintergreen (pink), licorice (dark gray), and chocolate (brown) — uses the same recipe from before and has remained essentially unchanged, that’s not the case with the chocolate wafers. You may notice a slight different in taste, due to a minor improvement in the cooking process, so the chocolate pack and the chocolate pieces found in the Original Roll will have a richer cocoa flavor.

“Once we brought back the original assorted roll of Necco Wafers this past summer, the demand for the Chocolate Roll was almost instantaneous,” Diana Eschhofen, Spangler Candy’s director, corporate communications, said in a press release. “We know this has been a long-awaited return, and we’re ready to give chocolate candy lovers something they’ve been missing.”

You’ll be able to get the Necco Chocolate Rolls online at SpanglerCandy.com now and at select retailers this spring. They’ll be available in single rolls or 24-count trays. Finally! Our Necco candy stash will be complete.
