The answer is: Good & Plenty

Good & Plenty was first produced by the Quaker City Confection Company in 1893 and is the oldest branded candy in the United States. The black licorice candy is coated in a hard candy shell to form a capsule shape. The pieces are colored bright pink and white and packaged in a purple box. For many years Good & Plenty was known for their cartoon mascot, Choo Choo Charlie, who made his debut in a 1950 commerical for the candy.
