- Good 'n Plenty candy is fat-free
- Net weight: 5 pounds (80 ounces)
Good & Plenty Licorice Candy (5 lbs.) is like the PG-rated film that the whole family can enjoy. It's got the timeless love story between hard candy shell and chewy licorice center that even your grandparents can appreciate, but it's still got the underlying tension of the jealousy between pink and white pieces that even the most angsty of dramatic teenagers can get excited by. Good & Plenty has a sweet licorice taste that is not as polarizing as the black licorice flavor that divides loyalties like the Starks and Lannisters. It's something everyone can agree on, like how much they love dragons. That makes Good & Plenty candy ideal for big crowds that need to be pleased by your choices, especially with a five-pound bag at hand. You'll be surprised at how fast it goes once everyone gets their first handful because that's all it takes to get fully addicted.
Is Good and Plenty Licorice or Candy?
It's both, and it's right there in the name. Good & Plenty Licorice Candy combines the distinct and distinguished flavor of black licorice with the sweet satisfaction of candy and the hard crunchy shell that gives it the cult-like following it enjoys. There are many imitators of this dynamic and delectable combo but only one true original.
When Was Good and Plenty Candy Invented?
Good & Plenty was first introduced by Quaker City Confectionery Company in 1893 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Yes, you read that correctly, 1893. Over 125 years ago. If Good and Plenty was good enough back then, surely it's still good enough today, with a recipe that hasn't changed and stays true to its (licorice) roots.
When Should You Eat Good and Plenties?
This inimitable candy can be enjoyed any time of day and with any activity, but here are some ideas: movie theaters (sneak them in in a smaller bag), ball games, concerts, picnics, school lunches or work snacks, break rooms and cafeterias, commercial kitchens or offices. You can also, of course, optimize your enjoyment of them in the comfort of your own home by pairing with a bowl of popcorn and a tasty beverage of your choice.
