A Florida woman showed her undying love for the old time candy Necco Wafers.

23-year-old Katie Samuels reached out to the colorful candy shop on Candystore.com offering up her 2003 Honda Accord as a trade for all of their stock. 

Samuels said the candy is nostalgic to her because she used to pretend play “church” at her grandmother’s house and would take Communion with the candies.

But, the historic candy company has hit a bump in their journey.

Last month, Necco announced that 395 workers could be laid off if the company didn’t find a buyer.

The sweet treat website did not accept Samuels offer in what they’re calling “The Great Necco Wafer Panic”.

But, she was able to score four dozen rolls of the wafers before they’re gone for good.
