Black Jacks - liquorice/aniseed flavour chews. The earliest versions of the Black Jack wrapper depicted a smiling gollywog; a popular children’s toy of the time. In fact, this is the wrapper that most children will remember from their childhood. It wasn’t until the 1980s, shortly before Trebor’s merger with rival confectioner Bassetts in 1990 that the wrapper was modernised and the image, considered to be politically incorrect, was removed. #trebor #blackjacks #aniseed #pennymix #sweets…
