Oct. 24 is National Good & Plenty Day.
Good & Plenty is an American brand of old-fashioned licorice candy. It is now a Hershey's brand candy that was originally produced by a Philadelphia candy maker in 1893. Yes, Good & Plenty has been around that long.
Good & Plenty is said to be the oldest commercial brand of candy in the United States. Made in small capsules that could easily be mistaken for medicine, Good & Plenty comes in pieces of bright pink and white that cover black chewy licorice.
The licorice covered candy come in a purple box or bag with the Good & Plenty logo.
On National Good & Plenty Day on Oct. 23, pay tribute to the oldest candy in America and enjoy a box of Good & Plenty. Share your Good & Plenty with others so they can enjoy the sweet treat as well.
Good & Plenty is often sold in movie theaters, but do know that you do not have to go to the movies to enjoy the chewy treat.
