One of the best selling flavors is something not everyone has heard of, or tried. Crunchies are a classic licorice treat, but where did they even come from?
These candies are sometimes called pastels, and you may know them as good & plenty candies. This company created their sweet treat in 1893, being one of the first companies in the US.
Around 40 years after the first licorice company was created in the United States, the American Licorice Company created what we call Crunchies. This 1930s treat is black licorice surrounded by a sweet, usually pastel-colored, coating. These made black licorice become more popularized, with WWII requiring soldiers to eat black licorice, therefore popularizing it after the war. Crunchies have stayed popular throughout the decades, often being a great movie candy.
Our crunchies are different due to their size and colors and are one of our best sellers. They are perfect for any party, being large enough to just have one. These crunchies can be nostalgic for many, but catch any child's eye. Also try our mix of allsorts, where you just may find a crunchy mixed in.
