We used to buy these at the swimming pool. Like giant Sweet Tarts but not a chalky and better tasting. Ah, Memories.

These were the best!! I always saved the banana one for last. Green apple was good, too!

You could get them in a roll, like sweet tarts, or, spree. Or, you could get them in a sleeve that had one of each flavor in a bigger flat disc shaped candy. I WANT THEM BACK!!!!

I loved Wacky Wafers! When our group from camp got our day at the city pool I would get them in the vending machine. They were in clear plastic sleeve not the blue boxes they show online, and nothing compares to them! Don't care what they say about the sweet tarts they are not the same!

These were the best candy ever! If you want to have these come back call Wonka Candy Co. at 1-800-358-1971 and voice your vote to have them return this great candy! I just called and they said they are getting lots of calls and are considering this. So call and maybe they will bring our beloved candy back!

...34 Years old. I do remember the clear package with the fruit in front of what one that it was. Those were AWESOME! I remember going up the the local "candy store" for those and .02 cent jolly ranchers. Bring back the wafers! The satelite disks are still reproducing and those sucked! I would love our kids to have the same memories riding on their bikes and going to the park to eat their sweets.

Banana, watermelon, orange, grape, peach, green apple, strawberry, how delicious. When I was young, we'd get these at the store before we went to the laundromat. They lasted long and tasted good. Did you all put a whole wafer in your mouth or hold the wafer and take bites??? We put a whole one in our mouth to dissolve slowly.

I called Wonka today and asked for Wacky Wafers to be put back on the market....they said if there is enough demand, it might happen! If you want to have these come back call Wonka Candy Co. at 1-800-358-1971!!!!

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about Wacky Wafers, so I'm glad they were mentioned here. I remember getting and liking these as a kid. Why were so many of great candies and foods of the 80s discontinued? :)
