Hollow pastel colored pieces of licorace that came in a box (red box I think) I pulled out a filling eating these when I was 11.

Used to get Snaps from my mother when I was little (starting 1964). Snaps goes back to around 1935, original company was American Licorice. In red, thin box. Logo in plain, white capital letters. These mainly were sold in small candy shops or mom-and-pop grocers, nickel a box. Now sold in bags.

This isn't for snaps but for Snap-E-Tom...that logo scared the hell outta me! I thought he was from Ro-Tel tomatoes but saw an episode of "Family" in a grocery store and there he was! That guy scared me so bad as a kid...along with the Underwood devil ham guy and Purina Gaines Burgers covered wagon! Yikes!

Hey, La Sponge! The Underwood Devil of pre-1956 was four times scarier! Had fangs, claws, and a mean face, but no pitchfork. The Purina Chuck Wagon was a stop-motion toy (1967-71) that lured the dogs to the food. The wagon driver's face was always shadowed out. Gaines Burgers, by the way, was by General Foods.

Ahhh...i must have(in my child's mind or imagination)gotten the two products mixed up. That Purina chuckwagon commercial scared me so bad that I thought it would come out at night from under the sink in the kitchen where we kept Gaines Burgers for our pup!

Found picture of a flat Snaps box from about 1973. image of candies zoomed in to show detail. American Licorice was in Chicago, near Cicero and North Av (few blocks west of where Schwinn bicycle plant was).
