    I forgot about those! Haven't seen them in years. sometimes stores will have a lot of "vintage" candy for a short time. I'll keep an eye out for them. I liked the banana best!;-)

    We have an old-fashioned candy store in town, I'll check and see if they have them, just by chance. She has all the old favorites.

    Any other requests???

    Bad news. This quot from the website.

    "Remember Wacky Wafers! Some people say they were similar to Chewy Sweet Tarts, but not chewy.

    Wacky Wafers were part of the Willy Wonka Candy line available in the U.S. They were shaped about the size of an American half dollar coin and had many flavors. Sold in a clear plastic wrapper, you could see the long strip of multi-colored and flavored wacky wafers inside. Later, they were produced in a smaller version similar to the current Bottle Caps in a box filled with the miniature fruit-flavored snacks. Wacky Wafers have been discontinued as part of the regular product line since Nestle purchased the Willy Wonka brand"

    I love the old penny candies. But I never had Wackey Wafers. If they were part of the willy Wonka thing they were past my time :lol
