Good and Plenty
Cast your memory back and recall the iconic ‘Choo Choo Charlie’ adverts on television. These memorable Good and Plenty commercials are etched in our collective childhood memory. The advertisements first graced our black and white screens way back in 1950. Since then, the candy has become a household name across the country, with many of us falling head-over-heels in love with it. So, how did it all start? First made by the Quaker City Confection Company in Philadelphia in 1893, these treats are now the oldest candy in America. Since the business began, it has supplied stores all over the US and even further afield. Believe it or not, these days, the brand is owned by the likes of The Hershey Company. Over the years, it has changed ownership multiple times, while the great taste of the licorice snacks has always remained the same throughout these transitions.
