Default Do They Still Make T H E S E?

I was browsing "the world-wide-web (Coming Soon To Alpha Centori Sector-8!)", and came across this pic! I faintly remember something like these...they were little black licorice-type gumdrops!

Anybody remember these and are they still around?



Got any products you'd like to know if its still in circulation or want to share a fun memory from "Dusty Days"? Post it. Would be interesting to what's still around!

They still make them, just changed the terribly politically incorrect name to just Crows.
Crows Black Licorice Gum Drops - Candy you ate as a kidŽ
They still make Chocolate Babies too, with a quick name change as well.
Chocolate Babies - Candy you ate as a kidŽ

That's a great site, I remember most of the stuff!

Crows: Crows Black Licorice Gum Drops - Candy you ate as a kidŽ

Some of my favorites are still with us. Wax bottles filled with liquid, barley pops, candy dots and my favorite gums: Beeman's, Black Jack, Clove and Teaberry, to name a few.

I remember a gum flavored with violets. From England. My granny gave it to me. Still available.

That's the great think about the Internet. Nothing seems to have gone away. I think some items went away only because local stores stopped carrying the product. The web lets the manufacturer sell to a wider audience.

Some products I forgot about have been in continuous production since the beginning and I just thought they were gone forever.

If you want Crows, they are available from many different places on the web in addition to the site I gave above. Along with things you remember but forgot about until you see them again.

These days, I am into soda pop. I just ordered a variety of odd balls you will never see on the grocery stores. There are hundreds of types and brands and I am excited to try them all.

I might look for some Crows, today. I loved them.

I still do not think the name is in any way controversial. They are Black. That is their color. And Crows are black. that is their color. So Black Crows is a good name for the product.

If anything, the maker should be criticized for redundancy.

If they were coconut flavored , Devil shaped and white in color, what would they call them? White Devils perhaps?

Devil Girl Hot Kisses Candy - Carton of 12 - R. Crumb: Comics & Underground Comix

As for Chocolate Babies. Hmm... let us see. They are chocolate and they are shaped like babies. What shall we call them. Cocca Brats? No, there must be a name that sums up their advanced feature set. They are chocolate and shaped like babies. Gosh this is a tough call.

I got it, we will call them "Mocha Lasses." Now available in coconut flavors. We call then "White Coccanut Supremacists."

Thank God we no longer use the term many people once applied to Brazil Nuts. If you want to get offended, Google that.

LOL Bob Max and Clementine! You guys! Speaking of Mocha-babies I tried my BEST to see if I knew what you two were talking about and the ONLY candy that llI could think of were the yellow bag of SUGAR BABIES! MMMMM-MMM!

So, finally I clicked the link and was totally wrong! But its funny! I remember biting into a candy like this but NEVER knew what they were! One look at the pic and the FLAVOR came back to me!



I never knew them by their actual or controvercial name reference. To be honest I never knew the shape was a baby! All I remember was, as Woody Harrellson said in Zombieland "Its Not The Taste, Its The Consistency", I always got "chillbumps" or freese-bumps when I bit into this type" of candy!

Candy like these made me literally cold on the hottest summer day! KORN, Candy Pumpkins, there were some "easter" candies made of this "consistency" now Ive learned to be "mellocream?"

They look like little mummies to me. Something Howard Carter found in Egypt.

And consistency is important in food. I love turkey legs because of the consistency. Completely different than white meat.

Speaking of WAX LIPS! Remember the ones with TEETH? I am literallly "tasting" the flavors and smell the "sweetness" while browsing these sites! Hey post pics of YOUR favs!



I cant remember at which point we would break down and chew the HECK out of those wax lips till the flavor was gone! What D I D we ever do with the "by-product"? Swallowed it?

I remember . . . it was when the wax was soft so it did not shatter into a billion little grains. We spit it out, always.

LOL, Clementine! I guess it was just a point in time, and yet, fond memories.. Days when parents, grandfolk and many others were young amd still with us! Days when we had no worries, bills or responsibilities.

Really? That is one candy that I has always been locally available. I buy the crystals on little swizzle sticks.

Incidentally, there is a brand of whiskey called 'Rock and Rye' that is made by dissolving rock candy in Rye. A waste of good Rye Whiskey if you ask me. Good whiskey must never be defiled with candy.

There was a woman in my home town who came up with these candy sticks, kind of looked like stalactites. She handed them out at Halloween in mason jars and they were so popular Russel Stover bought the recipe but I haven't seen it anywhere since the mid 70's.

Black Crows Unmasked Ģ Candy Professor

I remember those black crows but I think we had a rather derogatory name for them.

Well, it's what they were called. For real. Bad as it was, that's what they were.
You obviously missed out on the whole "wow, did we really do that" era! And the era before that was, I'm sure, much less subtle. lol

You actually LIKE those? MAN! I liked the first few seconds of the taste of horehound sticks (with that dusty powdery substance)....but man o man when the REAL taste kicked in! I thought I did something BAD!


Speakinh of "horehond" and being bad, I feel horrible for how we used to treat these twin sisters back in high skool! Yep we used to yell in the halls "run! Here comes the hore - hounds!"

I hope they arent members on a f! No one would remember that except those involved....and I do feel bad. We three became friends before the sr year....but they STILL LOOKED LIKE....

When it came to medicine - the lousier the taste, the better the medicine was for you.
Cod Liver Oil anyone? If it tasted good, it didn't work.

Here's the one I miss -



These little bites of chocolatey heaven were the SO freakin' good. If you've never tried them, trust me - you're missing out. When I was a kid, almost every convenience store had a plastic tub of these at the check-out counter. They do still make 'em, but they are really hard to find. I've had to resort to ordering them online a couple of times.

You know? I'm not sure - could've been.

If anyone's interested, here's the Amazon link to them.

I haven't seen them, but I don't do much candy any more unless it is these!

Cod Liver Oil anyone? If it tasted good, it didn't work.
On the other hand, a popular OTC medicine was Paregoric(sp?). It is camphorated tincture of opium.

I still see all the colors, man . . . far out, groovy.

ABSOLUTELY! Horehound drops are great.

Google "salt Liquorice and order some of that. It is salted black Liquorice and it takes getting use to. There is, actually, a world of different types of Liquorice out there. Including a carbonated beverage (or once was, someone Google, quick) that was flavored like chocolate Liquorice.

Very nice stuff indeed.

Yep, but the individually wrapped are much easier to open (the wax paper inside the bar would get stuck and tear off with the candy) and carry!

Now I want me some BOH. Any form or size. And a large glass of milk.

Trust me on this, a BOH is great with milk. So are malted milk balls, Snickers, Hershey's Kisses, Butterfingers and beef jerkey.

And it was hard as a rock! Not at all like today's over-processed over-preserved imitation bubble gum. Tasted so much better back then.

Dogs have a larger variety in their diet today. You can see this in disintegrating dog poop in the park. Mittens, pieces of plastic, you name it.

They don't use ash in the food anymore as a filler.

Some of the meat that goes into dog / cat food is a higher grade than goes into some cheap brands of pies and sausages.....trust me I used to work in an abattoir.
