The last time I had those, they were 25 cents.
I thought they were overpriced, for what they were.

I guess I’m young enough to never have had one. I prefer smarties anyway.

Necco wafers are the 'Horse & Buggy' of the candy world... they're only still around because old people are nostalgic :-)

The last time I had those, they were a nickel.

I liked all except the chocolate.

They were very chalky.

They were probably larger wafers back then, too.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

We stocked up on the originals before Spangler took them over. Still have a whole lot left. The new ones mostly taste the same, just slightly different.

And we use them for 100 yard rimfire rifle targets.

That price on Necco's doesn't surprise me from Food Lion. The only things I buy there are the sale items. They seem to follow the model of having big sales on certain things and then nickel-and-dime people on everything else. It's the closest store to us but I drive right on by most of the time.

newsflash, they're a $1 a pack @ Dollar Tree & Dollar General everyday.
The strategy for FL is when they run one of their 'stupid sales'. Like
Kerrygold Butter 3/$7, Idaho Fries $2 bag, & OM Beef Hot Dogs 2/$4.49;
it's stock-up the freezer time!

What kind of rimfire gear are you using, and where are you using it, that you can hit Necco's at 300 ft.? It's gotta be seriously wind protected to pull that off. My S&W Model 41 target pistol is all kinds of accurate w/ expensive target ammo, but our Ruger rimfire revolver can outshoot it with cheap .22LR ammo at pistol distaances. Plinking Necco's at 300 ft. out in the wild would seem to require a pretty spiffy setup..... unless you're shooting .17 WSM or .17 HMR w/ some impressive optics to find that Necco hiding out there.

Your standard .22LR plinker hitting a Necco at that range w/ any sort of breeze is more luck than skill; so c'mon, rat out your wafer buster(s).... cool smiley
