Candy Trivia: Black Crows Misnaming

Categories: Candy,Classic and Retro Candy,Gummi/Gummy Candy,Licorice Candy


I’ll admit, I have never actually tasted Crows candy since they are licorice-flavored (and I hate licorice), but I thought this bit of trivia was interesting about them: “Originally, Crows were to be called “Black Rose”, but the printer misheard the name as “Black Crows” and printed wrappers with the wrong name on them.”

Seems like they would have put the name on paper rather than just saying it aloud, but I guess things worked differently back in the 1890′s when they were invented.
