TRUTH !!
Necco Wafers date back to 1847. Oliver Chase, an English immigrant, invented
a lozenge cutting machine with which he produced the wafers. At the time of
the Civil War, these were called "hub wafers" and were carried by Union
soldiers. In 1901, Chase and Company merged with two other companies to
incorporate the New England Confectionery Company. By 1912, the wafers were
being advertised as "NECCO Wafers", a name they still carry today.
During World War II the United States government ordered NECCO to produce
its wafers for soldiers overseas. As a result of this action, NECCO saw its
sales of the wafers peak. Upon returning home, many former soldiers became
faithful customers who continued to buy the wafers.
