The last couple years I’ve been impressed with Necco’s seasonal offerings. For a company that’s been around over a century, they’re finding ways to bring cool contemporary products to market . In 2012 they blew me away with their Skybar Zombie Food, and this year they’ve created a tasty treat in a particularly groovy package with their Red Hot Cinnamon Batwing Necco Wafers!
During all of my candy hunts and shopping trips this year, I never found Necco Batwing Wafers at retail. I had to find and purchase these online and of course I’m glad I did as they really are a cool package. I’d go so far as to call this the most edgy and fashionable Halloween candy packaging of the season. What do you think?
Check out that UPC code fun their designer was having!
Here’s what the individual packs look like:
Since these are new and a product most people have probably not seen yet, I also wanted to share a photo of the actual candy. Here they are:
Being a big fan of the cinnamon hot flavor in my candy, these were quite enjoyable. Makes me wish for a roll of cinnamon hot Necco Wafers! How about it, Necco?
I know I have a contingent of comic book enthusiasts who visit CollectingCandy.com and I’ll ask if what jumped out at me the first time I saw Necco’s Batwing Wafers packaging also occurred to them: Don’t you think the packaging design looks like it took inspiration from the futuristic Batman Beyond cartoon series?
Whatever the case, the packaging design is awfully cool and makes Necco’s Batwing Wafers one of my favorite new releases for the Halloween 2013 season.
And that’s everything for today. See you next time!

Maybe Necco could come out with a liceneced Batman candy promotion someday…
