Classic Candy
National Good and Plenty Day
-- Good and Plenty candy is one of the oldest brand of candy in the U.S. It was first made in 1893, at Philadelphia's Quaker City Chocolate and Confectionery Company. On June 12, 1928, the Good and Plenty trademark was registered. The candy was given a popularity boost in the 1950s, by the Choo Choo Charlie advertising campaign. Choo Choo Charlie was a train engineer who used Good and Plenty to power his train. Hershey purchased the brand in 1996 with the acquisition of Leaf, Inc.

-- Candy has a special place in the hearts and memories of most Americans, who consume more than 600 billion pounds of it each year. This colorfully illustrated guide examines everything from chocolate to fruity sweets and from the simply packaged basics to gaudy product tie-ins. The author examines the classic brands of the late twentieth century and what they mean, guiding us on a mouth-watering, sugar-fueled trip down a memory lane filled with signposts like Bazooka, Clark, Necco and Tootsie Roll.
