Rockwood Rum Wafers Wed, 01/16/08 3:28 PM (permalink)
Hello Sweet lovers,

I have a friend in need of Rockwood Rum Wafers or similar. This sweet elderly lady new of these candies from her early days and I am on a mission to help her regain her youth so to speak.

Can anyone help me find them? I checked one source The Vermont Country Store, but they no longer sell them.

Thank you,

Sweetheart

        I am a fan of rum flavored things. I will keep a look out and would be interested if you found them.

            I remember these candies and LOVED them.  Mom and I talk about them every so often.  When we used to go to the supermarket to buy them you could SMELL them as you walked down the aisle.  Have never tasted any other like it since.  I hope you find them!

              If you search for the Necco Corp (they used to make the rum wafers), you will be able to contact them, and ask them to start making them, again.

                  Necco Corp used to make them.  If you go to their website, you can contact them, and ask them to start making them, again.  I did.  They also have an 800 number, which you can use to contact them, as well.
