Black licorice flavoured candies formed in the shape of a small person with their arms down at their side. They are approximately 2" tall by 1/2" wide & thick. Nigger Babies were sold as such for decades, until the later 1980's-mid 1990's when their name was changed to Licorice Babies to avoid derrogatory racial use of the word Nigger being ingrained in children's vocabulary as acceptable.
In the 1960's Nigger Babies were two for a penny. (one cent) Can you believe they're a nickel (5 cents) each now?
