    Description: Black Jacks - One of the best classic British sweets EVER - we love them! They`re aniseed-flavour chewy black rectangles with a delicious and unique taste, and they make your tongue go black - so not to be munched just before you go out on that hot date! I wonder where the name comes from? Well the answer comes from superstar customer Mike. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we`ll begin.... Black Jacks were called Black Jacks because the original 1920s labels pictured a grinning gollywog - unbelievably, back then images of black people were used to advertise Liquorice. However, by the late 1980s manufacturers Trebor quite rightly scrapped the Black Jacks golly logo as it was racially offensive, replaced the logo with an image of a pirate with a black beard and eye patch and re branded the sweets as Black Jack. And by the early 1990s Trebor disbanded the pirate logo altogether in favour of the the black and white swirl design we all remember. In 2008, a confectionery company called Tangerine bought out Trebor and decided to change the design once more to the current plain black with red writing.... now the swirly black and white packaging we all remember is gone forever, although they still taste the same.... hooray! - Qty In Order: 250g (8.8oz)

Black Jacks In A Kilner Jar - Cakes Snacks and Sweets


Category: Cakes Snacks and Sweets
Description: Black Jacks in a Kilner Jar Sadly the sweetshop jar is dying out. More and more sweets coming in boxes... or ultra boring, personality-less 3kg plastic bags. How dull! So we`ve decided to fight back! You don`t want to give a gift in a soul-less polythene bag... but you will want to give one of our old-school glass kilner jars, especially when its crammed full of one of our best selling sweets - Black Jacks. For those of you who like to know exactly what you are getting, each jar measures 21.5cm x 10cm x 10cm (that`s 8.5in x 4.0in x 4.0in) - so it`s pretty meaty! And when you (or the lucky recipient if it is a gift) has polished them off, you can refill the jar and start all over again! - Qty In Order: 1 Kilner Jar containing 900g of Black Jacks
