Good & Plenty

Los Angeles Times - - ROAD TRIPS FUEL -

What: Chewy, licorice-fla­vored bits housed in a thin candy shell.

Ba­sics: Good & Plenty, first man­u­fac­tured at the end of the 19th cen­tury, is one of the coun­try’s old­est con­tin­u­ously pro­duced brands. Fans like the con­trast be­tween the sweet candy shell and the pun­gent licorice fla­vor (but licorice is po­lar­iz­ing, so un­less you’re trav­el­ing alone, you’d be well ad­vised to carry al­ter­na­tives).

Trivia: The ob­long can­dies come in white and deep pink. That rosy hue comes from two in­gre­di­ents: Red 40 and K-carmine, the lat­ter of which is de­rived from the crushed bod­ies of fe­male cochineal, or scale, in­sects.

Price: About $1 to $2.49 for a 6-ounce box
