  5. Rachael says:

    In process of ordering a spooky Chewb for my sisters birthday, altho not sure how full it’ll be when she eventually gets it (if she gets it at all!) – black jacks are amazing, i remember spending a lot of pocket money on them when i was younger 🙂

  6. Jade says:

    I <3 Blackjacks! Even though it does look like you've been chewing coal! (:

  7. Alison says:

    Black jacks are THE original chewy sweets. I love them! I used to make a ‘sandwich’ with two or three of them and try and chew them at the same time. It was really difficult, especially when you’re only young and you’re missing a few teeth. Speaking of which, I sometimes substituted them for my missing milk teeth. Teehee.

  8. Sophie says:

    Black jacks are such a beauty, actually love them! Plus it’s still surprisingly fun to give them to your parents and friends before you go out without telling them that they turn your mouth black! 😀

  9. Emily Sargeant says:

    I love Black Jacks, but because of the way they colored your mouth, my mum insisted we switch to the Fruit Salads, which we did… when she was around, other wise it was Black jacks… of course she could always tell, and then it was off up to brush our teeth!

  10. shea says:

    black jacks are really nice and tasty they stick in between my teeth so i can save some for later and taste them all day yummy!!!

  11. Vicky Trudgeon says:

    Spent many years eating them in class, then getting caught with a black tongue and black teeth, never could lie about whether you were eating a BlackJack!

  12. Donna says:

  38. Chris Fraser says:

    The best sweet for sharing with my dad as the rest of the family didn’t like them. We had lots of fun comparing the ‘blackness’ of our tongues. Mum had to judge who was blackest. In those days it was a lot of fun for a few pennies.

  39. Chris Fraser says:

  40. Lydia Bowes says:

    OMG what can i say. They were my favourite as a child and are still my favourite now at almost 50.
    A shop near where i live has just started selling them and i have to buy several at a time because they disappear quick and also my youngest daughter loves them.

  41. claire says:

  42. Catherine Taylor says:

    My favourite thing about black jacks is watching my childrens faces change in amazement when their tongues turn black!

  43. Diane says:

    Thinks Blackjack are a classic sweet, loved them as a kid and still do now, not only do you get a yummy sweet but a black mouth and blue teeth, not a good idea to eat b4 an important meeting 🙂

  55. Dave Hindley says:

  56. Eve Mitchell says:

    Talk about take you back to your childhood. We paid 1p (old coinage) for four. Its great when you have a blast from the past and blackjacks certainly bring a smile to my face

  57. Gill says:

    These little gems are a symbol of childhood for me. Being rich enough to have a penny meant you could but four of them!! But they had to last because you never knew where the next penny would come from. And I’m talkin’ OLD pennies. Yeah!

  58. Joanna says:

    I used to love blackjacks as a kid and still do now. Its nice to see that they have not been changed in flavour over the years. Now my kids enjoy them too

  59. Georgina says:

    The best thing about blackjacks – besides their yumminess – is that you can always tell when someone else’s been sneaking them!!

  60. maria d says:

    yummy yummy yummy!!!! these are the best sweets ever made and i couldnt wait till my son was old enough to have a laugh with him with them……….black teeth, black tongues and pulling faces!!!!!

  61. Tanya says:

    I miss being able to buy them at the local shop! They, along with fruit salads take me back to my childhood!!! I loved how they turn your tongue black but i could still eat them for days!!

  62. lindsay says:

    love them! the flavour is truly unique & you can’t beat that black tongue haha a childhood fav of mine…don’t think my kids have ever had the pleasure of tasting them though – I best fix that!

  63. Paul says:

    I love blackjacks and I’m only 16 but remember them, pretty sad that I missed the free flumps, love them too

  64. Niki says:

    I remember popping into the corner shop after school to buy blackjacks and fruit salads when I was a young girl. Happy memories!!!

  65. Paul says:

    Sorry for the double comment, well triple now. Obviosuly not expecting 3 sets of free blackjacks 😀

  66. Anitas says:

    I just love em, fatastic taste far superior to the fruit salad, used to have competitions on who had the blackest mouth!!

  67. michelle newbold says:

    Could i please please have some blackjacks, i haven’t had any of these since i was a kid and i’m telling you that was a very very long time ago. didn’t think the sold them anymore. I can also frighten the kids when they come to my door knocking when i smile at them with black teeth, lips and tongues, it will go with my witches costume i’ll be wearing.

  68. Stella says:

    Love blackjacks, they take me back to my childhood. Used to buy blackjacks and fruit salads every Saturday when shopping with mum!

  70. Jane Garton says:

    Black jacks are the best!

    Remember going to thwe corner shop after school and getting your black jacks for 1p?

  71. Michael says:

    I loved the taste of blackjacks, and they turned your mouth black… gave you the urge to show everyone the contents of your mouth!! lol

  72. ZENA DEVILLE says:

    Love black jacks reminds me of being young and seeing who got the blackist tongue and putting on our lips to look like we were dead with black lips but of course the taste hasnt changed soon as i eat the I am a child again and hey can still make my tongue the blackest the quickist

  73. Katy says:

    My kids enjoy the comedy partner of fruit salads more than the straight part of the duo, the black jack and therefore, quite selfishly, I can just enjoy a bag full to myself without their requests for MY sweets and that is why I love them because they are MINE!

  74. caroline mccabe says:

    I would love some Black Jacks as I used to buy them as a kid – they would really evoke lots of childhood memories i.e calling at the local newsagents and buy single blackjacks as a treat on the way home from school! Caroline.

  75. Chris Bennett says:

    I love blackjacks as it leaves your tongue a great black colour and good for handing out at kids club

  76. Tracy Flather says:

    Love black jacks cos they are sticky, chewy and flavoursome and get stuck in your teeth meaning they last longer, mmmmmmmmmm!

  77. Liam says:


    Absolutely love them, they remind me of going to the sweet shop as a kid and getting 50pences worth of Blackjacks & Fruit Salads, good old days eh?

    Helps that I really like Aniseed aswell.

  78. Cazzy says:

    Oh I love blackjacks especially the aniseed bite – ever so chewy and reminds me of school days. Would like to know if the recipe has been changed ?

  82. Julia Workman says:

    I vividly remember sitting in class sticking my tongue out at everyone because it was black!! The best bit is you didnt get told off for being rude 🙂 As soon as you see one of these little gems its instant memory lane

  83. Alison says:

    I love blackjacks – they’re such a blast from the past for me !! As a child I lived near a Trebor factory and you always new when they were making these because of the wonderful smell – my mouth is watering just thinking about it !!!!!!!!

  84. Sharon says:

    Well what can i say…These are the best sweets ever…Ive been eating them ever since i was little and love them just as much now as i did when i was a little girl..Im nearly 42 yrs old so just goes to show what a much loved sweet they are…I think many generations will love Blackjacks for many years to come :0)

  85. Julia Workman says:

    Whats not to love about a Black Jack. I remember finishing my paper round on a Saturday morning and going right back to the paper shop to get my wages then it went straight on to the pick and mix. First thing in was a handful of Black Jack / Fruit Salad mix.

  86. Elisa Robson says:


    I loved these as a kid and remember when you ate loads of them they turned youtounge blakc so we used to have competitions to see whose tounge as the blackest. I also loved the aniseed flavour you just cant beat it.

    Yum Yum

  87. joanna king says:

    trick or treaters? me dont think so….. I will be devouring these chewy little darlings!!
    They remind me of my childhood. I love the black jacks and my sister loved the fruit salads. whenever we got a botty bag, we used to swap the ones we weren’t so keen on so we had the best of both worlds! can’t wait to receive them yummmm…

  88. Jenny says:

    Blackjacks…. Love the black tongue & purple teeth.. Always reminds me of being a kid :O) I can remember them being two for a penny (new money!) Weird aswell, but I dont like aniseed in anything else.

  89. Hollie says:

    Wow, I just love black jacks  whats not to like?! They are still one of my fave penny chews, I used to buy them with my pocket money as a kid all the time, and I’m just as bad now and I’m 26! Although don’t get the pocket money any more !!!

  90. Joanne Fox says:

    Blackjacks. A blast from the past. They remind me of the long hot summer of 76. I can still see my friends and i having a picnic surrounded by green fields with pockets full of BlackJacks. Priceless!

  91. julie says:

    Love them, remind of when i was a kid and my nan used to give me a sixpence to buy sweets. Yu used to get loads of sweets for 2 1/2 pence.

  92. TERRY TURNER says:

    Blackjacks are a unique flavour and take me back to the early 1960s when I was a boy.They are just great.

  93. steve says:

    im 47 now but blackjacks were 4 for a penny in early seventies and great for taking to saturday morning pictures. i used to mix them with fruit salads, though these were my favs by far. black tongue/teeth so sexy, wonder why the girls wouldnt kiss me?

  94. warren taylor says:

  98. Haylea Davis says:

    Black Jacks are one of the best sweets going, ive like them since i was a little kid and still do so thats saying something ha x

  99. Mary says:

    Oh, memories of my youth. My mum wouldn’t let me have them as part of my sweet allowance because they turned your tongue black, but my friends had them and I saved my pennies and bought them when I was out with friends rather than my mum. And my auntie was sympathetic and bought them for me when I went to stay, though I wasn’t allowed them on the last day so my tongue “deblacked” before I went home, else we would both have been in trouble 🙂

  100. kathleen says:

  104. Silverbullet says:

    Haven’t had since a kid when I used to get 2 for a penny. Remember then turning your tongue blue. What a kick to the memory. My kids would love them.

  107. Maxine says:

    These are classic!! I used to get these with my ‘penny sweets’ in the 80’s. The fact they turn your tongue black was unique in those days and brings back many happy memories of childhood innocence! The taste lingers after eating and that is great!

  108. Heather Lingard says:

    Can remember them from Sunday morning when I was allowed to go and get the papers from the corner shop when I was young and this was my treat for going best sweets ever.

    I always loved blackjacks more than fruit salad. much more flavour! we used to call them ha’penny chews back in the 60’s cos they cost half an old penny each! that’s about a quarter of a new penny now! And my daughter of 17 loves them too! and at 53, I still love ’em!!

  113. george & patsy taylor says:

    untill i mentioned them,i didn`t know just how much my wife was in love with blackjacks,& fruit salads,i think it was every kids dream to be “grown up”,& able to buy them by the BOX,instead of tuppence worth from woolworths,happy days

  114. Suzan Aydin says:

    Hi there! Ever since I was a kid I’d eat black jacks for sweets. The aniseedy/liqourice taste just made me feel so warm inside. I’d love to get a free set of blackjacks… Have to be careful of my teeth tho 😉

Decadent black chewy delights – loved them then and love them still today….inherited the love of aniseed flavour from my Mum, who could always be guaranteed to buy us such retro treats….even when other sweets were restricted.

  120. Diane Brown says:

    I love these sweets they remind me of my younger days. When me and my brother and sister used to go to the shop for a 10p mix. We used to save Black Jacks until the last just so we’d have black teeth. ha ha

  121. TracyE says:

  128. Pepper Nicholson says:

    I haven’t seen Black Jacks in ages. I used to love them as a kid, not just for the taste but also because they gave you a black tongue! 😛

  129. Steve Simms says:

    Black Jacks take me write back to the days when my Mum used to say “oh my god what have you been eating”, thinking the reason for my lips being black was I’d got into trouble!

  130. Jenny says:

    I loved these sweets many years ago! Remember getting loads for Black Jacks (and Fruit Salads) for 10p!!
    The smell, the taste and the leaving the tongue completely black…..Everyone knew you had been eating them!
    Happy memories!

  132. samantha says:

    They make you want to eat them really fast and then stick your newly-coloured tongue out at people.
    They were like the ‘Marmite’ of their day – you either loved them or hated them!

  133. sue says:

  137. june dalley says:

  145. mark says:

    Fantastic !!!! it’s like watching an old TV program that you loved from the 80’s like Miami vise !!!! i loved it !! and i loved Blackjacks, me and me mates was always eating them and sticking our tongue’s out at each other ! or better still the “look at my black teath” joke. thats when you would chew a blackjack until soft and stick it over the front of your teath !! great days…

  146. Patricia Foxton says:

    What memories! My parents had a sweet shop back in the late fifties/early sixties. The shop was always full of school kids and black jacks (along with fruit salad) were favourites. Back then they were 4 for a penny. We used to see who could get the blackest tongue!

  147. Terry Murphy says:

    Along with Marmite and liqourice, BLackjacks were despised by my weak and uneducated friends with thier simple palettes and lack of taste.

    Fortunately, I am of a better breed, so naturally I ate Blackjacks in abundance. I come from a long line of sweet eaters and have myself tasted many many chewy cubes and sugary pills but never have I been able to find one that delights me more than the mighty Blackjack, to whom other sweets pale in comparison.

    I can’t wait to eat some!

  148. Pauline says:

    Blackjacks my favourites over 40 years ago.As I was the only one to go home for dinner I was the class tuck shop girl.Taking orders daily for all my friends 1 & 2p a time!!!! Ah what great memories Thank you!!!!

  154. Stacey says:

  155. leah mason says:

  156. michelle says:

  157. Pauline Ford says:

    My gosh – Blackjacks – that takes me back a bit (6o years approximately)to my younger days. They’re back – can’t wait. They were truly delicious and scrummy and loved the fact that they used to turn your tongue black and as I’m too old to care now I can’t wait to try them again.

  158. Ken Fullegar says:

    I used to buy black jacks at a farthing each and they were one of the first sweets I used to buy when they came off ration – happy days !!

  159. Mandy James says:

    OMG!!! I sooooooooo love Black Jacks! A few years ago I had been eating these on and off all afternoon and we decided to go for a drink down our local. We had been there for about half an hour and a couple of people had given me strange looks! I went to the loo a little while after, looked in the mirror as i was washing my hands, only to discover my teeth, tongue and lips were a very becoming shade of BLACK! I could have died! And needless to say hubby had a flea in his ear for not telling me! He thought it was hysterical!

  160. Phil says:

    Great! As you get older the things that bring back childhood memories mean more and Blackjacks do .. that black tongue … great!

  161. melissa says:

    i lovee black jacks they have to be one of the best sweets out there
    i love the chewyness and wonderful aniseed taste
    plus the way they make your tongue black is great
    also they are wrapped so you can take them with you whereever you go!!

  162. karen says:

    Oh, this takes me back to the days when you could get 4 chews for a penny (old) and you felt that you were the most fortunate kid in the world! I still like to buy these, remebering how hot your mouth felt after several chews!

  163. Helen says:

    Is it me or are sweets smaller these days and they seem to have better flavour,still think it is great to change the colour of my mouth

  164. Alice says:

    Wow – these along with Fruit Salad were a much-cherished playtime treat as a young child. They sold them in the school tuck-shop… how times change. I feel nostalgic just remembering the taste! So pleased to hear they are back again 🙂

  165. John says:

    These were my favourite in pre-currency school days,4 for an old penny was a treat and affordable each day, I had no trouble enjoying them none of the kids in my class liked them and now if I get the mixed bags of sweets for my children they always pass the Blackjacks to me, just by luck none of my 8 like them. Of with the fruit-salads on with more blackjacks,keep them coming

  166. Mike says:

    Just like everyone else – take me back to my childhood and playground currency. Bring them back and I bet they are not a half penny each are they?

  172. Dillon says:

    When I was about ten my brother said he would give me a black Jack for my 37th birthday. He kept his word but said I’d have to wait till I’m 75 before he buys me another one.

  267. Christine Ball says:

    They bring back memories of my school days in the 70’s when I used to visit the tuck shop every day with my pocket money from the previous week and there were so many that I could buy. They did however play havoc with my teeth as for some reason they changed colour

  268. LINDSAY SLATER says:

    Black Jacks are something I remember from when I was younger. I remember the first time I tried them I wasnt too sure about the taste but I gave them a second chance and decided I loiked the taste and used to ave them regularly along with fruit salads and alternate them which tasted fab. Like to eat them now but have managed to lose one or two fillings along the way, lol

    Have loved Black Jacks since I was a kid (many years ago) they used to be 8 for a penny (1d old money) they used to be bigger or could it have been I was just smaller, whatever, I still buy them now for my rand children but have to have some myself, well old habits die hard.
