I think this is as good a time as any to point out that the former Charleston Chew building in Everett, MA has been converted to luxury lofts for upward millennials.

Too bad the supply of upwards millennials is pretty much tapped out.

We have a deep history of turning old candy companies into condos.

Can Millennials even afford luxury condos?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Lick your lips and get ready for the Necco Building to satisfy your thirst for dog runs and Kcup coffee.

The one in Cambridge is now biolab space. I lived 3 blocks away when it was still an active Necco wafer factory. The air over Mass Ave. smelled of sickly processed sugar 24/7. :twitch:

I assume at some point in history, people actually liked Necco wafers?

The lucky ones whose Boomer parents have died relatively soon, yes.

They were an important source of tooth decay for the Irish immigrants and a staple of granny candy dishes for generations.

Fuck if I know what the last 25 years of usage was.

Necco had a plant just north of Milwaukee for years. They produced a product called "candy raisins" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_Raisins) and when they shut the plant down in 2008 - people were seriously pissed that they could no longer buy the product. It has since been brought back - much to the enjoyment of older folks!
