Crows were invented in the 1890’s. Originally to be called “Black Rose”, the printer misheard the name and printed “Black Crows” on all the wrappers. The name stuck and the sweet, black licorice-flavored gumdrops are as delectable today as they were more than a century ago. 8.5oz theatre sized box.
Addicted to Crows
These are my favorite licorice candies because they are so so soft and chewy and even stay soft long after you open the box. It isn’t as strong tasting as Twizzlers licorice. Many people like that strong licorice taste but I prefer a milder licorice taste. That’s why I like Crows so much. I also really like black RedVines too but the store that carries them here are often out of stock. I could buy them online but that’s usually much more costly. But I’ll never get tired of eating Crows. I’ve been eating them for many years now.
