When I moved to Boston 15 years ago, NECCO was based in Cambridge, a sideways block or two down the street from the big MIT dome.

At the time, their building was actually a functioning candy plant, too, and their water tower was painted to look like a giant package of NECCO wafers. When they sold out a few years ago (with much local agita over yet another local company getting swallowed), they also sold the building to Novartis, so now the water tower is painted with a boring pharma company logo.

That said, do you really want to eat candy made a few hundred feet from a functioning nuclear reactor?
