    I remember getting these in an easter basket…. I threw a tantrum like you wouldn’t believe. I GOT NO JELLY BEANS! I got these disgusting things instead. lol, My dad took a chocolate caramel egg from my sisters basket to appease me…. They did NOT make the same mistake the following year. XD

    LOL because my 4 year old just learned how awful this candy is. He begged for a box at a theater recently. I told him he wouldn’t like it and to get something he likes–like M&M’s. He refused. so, I bought them for him and told him he couldn’t eat any other sweets until the entire box was gone. He tried to fake that he liked them for a minute, then was overly eager to share them with everyone– then anyone who would take a few, and then tried to spill them and throw them away. It was hillarious because the box was so freaking full that even if you did like them you could never finish the box. He never finished the box, and the box keeps reappearing just to remind him that mom was right. I am going to let the box rest for a while and then wrap it up for his birthday in a few months! HA! It will appear again “from Santa.”

    Sooner or later, every child must learn the brutal Good & Plenty lesson. :)

    Silly… these are black licorice candy, NOT tabacco. Your whole premise is is silly. If you like black licorice, you will most likely like Good and Plenty. Personally, it is one of my favorite candies.

    I love good and plenty!!! Currently my quest is to find a shot that tastes like G&P. I need Good and Plenty shooters to make my engine run! Lol.
    Yesterday at work I sang the jingle to people without enough rank to get away. It was a diabolical move :D

    So, yeah. You don’t like black licorice.
    Some do. Some don’t.
    Moving along…

    I heard last year [2013] that Good & Plenty cdandy was Americas oldest candy. Since then, when I got down to a few pieces left, I’d go to the store and get two more boxes. Over the years I have forgotten about them. Back in the 1940’s they were my favorite candy at the movies. Love them all over again. A post above from Stephanie above who was 22 in 2012, is off to the store to get some. I am now 75, and have two boxes here now.

    I think I have had these things before and thought they were gross. I think I will get a box and see if I still hate them as much a I think I did.
