My fading memory remembers these as "Dots" but I guess I was wrong.
The Almighty All-Powerful All Knowing Google doesn't remember anything called "Dots".
But to get back to these Black Crows, when I used to go to "the show"* as a youngster I would get some hot buttered popcorn and some Black Crows and after a few bites of popcorn I'd invert the box of black licorice flavored candy into the popcorn and shake it up.
I loved sweet black licorice and the combination of these and the popcorn made my day.
Any of you Gentle Readers have a memory of something you liked to eat as a kid?
* "the show" was what we called the movies at the one theatre in my small town. I remember paying 13 cents for admission.
