Love the Dots. Hate the Crows. Since I will never buy Crows (basically, black licorice Dots), here's a little Crow history from the Tootsie Roll website (Tootsie Roll makes Dots and Crows):
Crows were invented in the 1890's by confectioners Ernest Von Au and Joseph Maison. 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. The sweet, black licorice-flavored gumdrops are as delectable today as they were more than a century ago.
