Even Trade: Car For Candy


Good morning. I'm Noel King. The company that makes Necco Wafers - those chalky fruit-flavored discs that have divided candy lovers for years - may be closing. And some Necco lovers are losing it. In a moment of desperation, 23-year-old Katie Samuels made an offer to a candy wholesaler - her 2003 Honda Accord for their entire stock of Necco. I've got this car. I want all that candy, she said. The wholesaler said no. She did get her Necco in the end. She charged it to her credit card. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
