Just thinking about the G&P Lip Balm is making my stomach turn. I am pretty sure if I kissed someone wearing this, I would probably vomit in their mouth (fair warning!). I know that Good & Plenty is the oldest branded candy in the US (first produced in 1893), but that is no reason to still have it around. I can really only see three scenarios where Good & Plenty candy is sold at all.
- Old people who ate it as children when there was nothing else have found memories of it. You know, like people from the great depression and world wars when sugar was scarce.
- Parents who want to shut up their kids who are whining about wanting candy will get it as a "Really you want candy?" type punishment
- Young girls fall for the pink and white packaging...but this will only ever happen once to each child.
The name Good & Plenty is such a misrepresentation - well half misrepresentation. They are definitely NOT good, but you will have plenty because you will never finish a box. Good & Plenty stop tricking old people and kids...you should not be in the candy aisle.
*I think Jelly Belly actually wussed out on the second run of these beans and the gross flavors were changed to ketchup, fish, onion, and sausage (still better than Good & Plenty).
