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…

The Old English Spangles tube contained traditional English flavours such as liquorice, mint humbug (sweet)s, cough candy, butterscotch and pear drops. One of the flavours was an opaque mustard yellow colour, and one was striped. The sweets' individual wrappers were striped, distinguishing them from regular Spangles. The tube was black, white and purple, and designed for a more mature and specific clientele than the regular variety.
