One of my earliest memories is of Wackies (I'm 47). I remember demanding them when I was in the hospital at 18 months old (a traumatic memory like that stays with you forever.) For years when I asked about Wackies everyone (including my 5 older siblings) thought I was crazy and made it up! Thank you for proving me sane.

I am so glad that Wackies did NOT appear in my area because I am not a banana fan (natural OR artificial flavor).
