About Benne Wafers

Unique to the Lowcountry since Colonial times, Benne (the Bantu-word for sesame) was brought from East Africa and planted extensively throughout the South. Other foods brought from Africa in the 17th and 18th century include peanuts, sweet potatoes, okra, black-eyed peas and collard greens.

“These salty-and-sweet toasted sesame cookies are a longtime Charleston favorite. Olde Colony Bakery has been making them for more than 70 years.”
