I remember saving the wrappers from the regular size slo-pokes to send in for the super sized sucker. It was an 8" by 4" sucker and was delivered to the local store for you to pick up.

My dad used to buy boxes and hand them out at Trick or Treat and kids would come back 3 times .....

Slo-Pokes and Black Cows both were hard suckers. One bite would guarantee broken or loose teeth. These, along with Milk Duds, were made by the Holloway Company of Chicago from about 1965 until the early 1980s. Haven't seen either sucker product in years. Milk Duds is now made by Hershey. A comic book ad from 1971 had a contest in which AMF bicycles were awarded. Fifty 26" 3-speed, 100 20-inchers, and 150 tyke-size bikes were the prizes. All you had to do was send in one wrapper from a Holloway candy product to be eligible. At least kids who won these didn't have to pay income tax on them.
