It wouldn’t matter if there were chocolate covered ants inside, as long as they come in a fancy vintage candy box!

Think text messaging is new? No way! The New England Candy Company (NECCO) actually began printing messages on candy back in the 1860’s. Today they even have an iPhone App and offer recipes and crafts. Visit their fun site at
