ISO: Licorice Sold Years Ago

OK, I can't even remember the name of this licorice, but it was better than anything I've tried these days. My family used to get it on a regular basis when I was growing up (that's the Boston area, a zillion yrs ago). I seem to think it was actually made in England, but I could be wrong. Was sold in little rectangular boxes & each rectangular piece was individually wrapped. Almost like a licorice caramel (soft toffee?), if you can understand what I mean - was hard at first, but became soft & chewy & very delicious.

I seem to think the company had other flavors, but the only one that I and my mom bought was the licorice one. Wanted to do a search to see if the company was still in business - but I can't do that without the name!

Hopefully I've triggered the memories of some other Chowhound oldsters like myself! :D
