The History of Good and Plenty


Once upon a time there was an engineer

Choo Choo Charlie was his name, we hear.

He had an engine and he sure had fun

He used GOOD & PLENTY candy to make his train run.

Charlie says “Love my GOOD & PLENTY!”

Charlie says “Really rings my bell!”

Charlie says, “Love my GOOD & PLENTY!

Don’t know any other candy that I love so well!”
In 1950 Choo Choo Charlie and his theme song first appeared in advertisements for this little candy coated licorice treat.  However GOOD & PLANTY was first produced in 1893 by the Quaker City Confectionary Company in Philadelphia becoming the oldest candy to be branded in the US.  A few ownership changes later, GOOD & PLENTY is now produced by the Hershey’s Food Corporation.
