A Bit of History

Once popular in penny candy stores, these flavorful licorice pipes are one of many “candy tobacco” products, along with candy cigarettes and cigars! As for the licorice: the licorice root came over with the British in the 1600s and was used as a toothbrush and medicine. In the late mid-1800s, it was enjoyed as a candy. In 1893 Good n’ Plenty, the nation’s oldest brand, was born! The licorice pipe, red licorice and licorice bridge mix followed, numerous new editions chugging through the decades. The pipes have been gone for decades…we’re so happy they’re back. LET us know if you’d like black or red.

DID YOU KNOW: Licorice was used as an additive to tobacco in the 1800s.
