Go ahead. Satisfy your sweet tooth today, because we’re celebrating the pink- and white-coated candy from by-gone days. You either love it or hate it, but Good & Plenty is the oldest brand of candy in the U.S.A., originating in Philadelphia in 1893. The Choo Choo Charlie TV commercials boosted its popularity in the 1950s. Come on… sing it! “Charlie says, ‘Love my Good & Plenty.’ Charlie says, ‘Really rings the bell.’ Charlie says, ‘Love my Good & Plenty. Don’t know any other candy that I like so well.’”
CHOO choo choo choo! CHOO choo choo choo!
While the choo-choo-chewy centers may not be true licorice, licorice extract gives a satisfying finish.
Okay. My teeth hurt thinking about this. Time for some potato chips. (Sorry, Charlie.)
