The vintage Good & Plenty biggy Lip Smacker was yet another iconic brand pairing in smacker history.
If you’re not familiar with them, Good & Plenty’s are a spicy black licorice candy with a hard coating, making it a perfect match for Bonne Bell’s unique line. BB did great with it because its formula still smells strongly like the real thing.
While it saw a few different design changes in its day, it always kept a similar scheme to match the candy box. What I like the most is that even though it’s black licorice flavored the balm is pale pink 😀 Too cute!
It seems that people either love or hate black licorice. I like it, what about you? Would you buy this flavor if it were available today?
I would get it just because it is a Lip Smacker, but I hate black licorice. Yuck!
Aha, I love it! I feel that way about a couple myself like Sugar Plum.
I WANT THIS WHERE CAN I GET IT
NEVER! DESPISE BLACK LICORICE!!
This was one of my favorites and I was hoping they would bring that back along with some others. At least sour grapes will be back though.
I agree, Sour Grapes definitely makes up for it. I wish they had brought back all of the vintage sour flavors!
Pink lip pomade flavored like licorice candy? Major wow factor. If this one was still being made today, that would totes land in my shopping cart.
For sure! 😀
How do you find these vintage lip smackers so new and perfect ! wow I want:)
Wow this is TO DIE FOR! I want the caboodles! You have the best stuff!
Those pics of the Good & Plenty smacker are just torturous!! Out of all the original smackers that is the one I want brought back the most. As a teen I remember my local department store had a huge jar on their cosmetic counter that contained the giant smackers and this is one of them I remember in that jar. There was also Tootsie Roll, 7-Up, Sour Grape, Watermelon, Wild Raspberry, etc. Ahh the good old days :'(
I have looked for it, or something similar, for years! I would by many, just like i just did with grape Chapstick which FINALLY came back! Doesnt take much to make me happy! 🙂
I had this one, and I savored it and kept it for a very long time as it was my absolute favorite. Sadly, my ex-husband went through my makeup one day and threw it away because he said I didn’t need to keep it. He was a controlling man and tried to control my makeup. I told him he better not ever touch my makeup again. I’d pay top dollar to have another one.
Good and Plenty HAS to be the WORST candy to EVER have been invented! Bitter, tasted like MEDICINE! To put on my LIPS? NEVER!! ?
