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!

This Halloween, don't overlook a box of good ol' Good & Plenty.

This tasty candy is a surprisingly old American treat. You may be old enough to remember the "Choo Choo Charlie" commercials on TV, but Good & Plenty has actually been delighting kids with a taste for licorice since the 19th century.

Check out the slideshow above to learn what is really in Good & Plenty, how it became a fixture in popular culture and more.
