Necco Wafers!

The catechists favorite First Communion practice wafer, Necco, is now all natural!

The revamped product is now using red beet juice, purple cabbage, cocoa powder, paprika and turmeric to replace the artificial ingredients that had been flavoring and coloring the wafers for years.

Mmmmm...beet juice and purple cabbage! I am very disappointed that the green wafers didn't make the cut. However, I am intrigued by the wider variety of chocolate flavors (dark, milk, mocha and white).


  1. What?! Catholics get different flavors of communion wafer?! And I thought just getting to pick between juice or wine was cool. (:

  2. Matt, we can choose any flavor we want as long as the flavor is the flavor of unleavened wheat.
