Necco wafer wrapper - crumpled. One of many crumpled wrappers about the house tonight. I am probably one of about two dozen people in the world who still like Necco wafers. They taste like childhood treats, dusty with sugar and unexpected flavors, and they also remind me of walking the back streets of Cambridge, near Kendall Square, after college. When the wind was right, you could smell the candy being made at the New England Confectionery Company. When the wind was wrong, it was mostly the Charles, with overtones of the Red Line and just a hint of the Dudley bus.
