Sugar Daddy vs. Black Cow vs. Slo-Poke

Sugar DaddysWell, this war was won a long time ago.

It used to be that when you were in the mood for an all-day sucker, you had a choice to make. Sugar Daddy? Black Cow? Slo Poke?

Decisions, decisions . . .

As I recall, Slo Poke was the direct equal of the Sugar Daddy, the Black Cow being, basically, a Slo-Poke dipped in chocolate. I don't mind telling you, it wasn't much of a competition for me. I must have eaten at least a thousand Black Cows in the 60's.

Holloway was the maker of Slo Pokes and Black Cows. I seem to remember a Pink Cow, too, but couldn't tell you what it was. Maybe someone out there can?

Anyhow, the original companies got swallowed up by bigger boys, and eventually Clark ended up with the Holloway all-day suckers. In 1998, they discontinued the production of the long-lasting caramel goodies.

Sugar Daddy is now owned by Tootsie Roll, and yes, they're still around. So even though Black Cow won the battle in the 60's, as far as I'm concerned, Sugar Daddy won the war.

Check out this site for something else I had completely forgotten about: a coloring book that was given away by Holloway in movie theaters!
