1914: How It All Began
The story of the American Licorice Company begins in 1914, when Martin Kretchmer, along with his son and son-in-law, rented a small space on West Jackson Boulevard in Chicago. Together, they made their first piece of candy: the Black Licorice Twist. Five generations later, American Licorice remains a family-owned and operated company, and the proud manufacturers of Red Vines candy.
1920's: The California Sun
In 1925, part of the operation traveled west where Martin's son, Clarence, headed up manufacturing in California. Built on perseverance, the company made and shipped candy to customers daily throughout the Great Depression. The Kretchmers' dedication paid off, and that year Charlie Chaplin asked the company to create a licorice shoe which he famously ate in the classic film 'Thee Gold Rush"' That's one tasty boot!
1950's: Red Vines Are Born
In the 1950s, the company expanded beyond traditional black licorice by making Raspberry Vines. These new red twists were made with fruit flavor instead of the licorice root extract used in the original black twists. But the public dubbed them 'red licorice' twists, because of the similar format and texture to the black. Today these red licorice twists are known as Red Vines candy and are still made with the same original recipe.
1960's: Super Ropes Hit The Scene
Innovation wasn't about to end with Red Vines twists. In 1963, new Red Ropes candy and Licorice Ropes became the longest pieces of licorice to ever hit the market. The 34" long licorice ropes were then individually wrapped, and Super Ropes candy was born. The next decade introduced flavored licorice (grape flavored Purple Vines, peppermint Green Vines & Chocolate Vines), as well as the movement of California operations to Union City, and Chicago operations to Alsip, IL.
1980's: An Iconic Look For The Brand
Back in the '50s, Red Vines twists were originally packaged in simple candy trays, perhaps most famous today at your local movie theatre. Almost 30 years later, American Licorice Company began to package twists in the now-iconic Red Vines candy jar. The knob-topped jar kept candy fresh and easily caught the eye of retail shoppers, making Red Vines candy easy to spot on the shelf.
2014: A 100 Year Legacy
In 2014, the American Licorice Company celebrated 100 years of making candy. Throughout the last five generations, we've had the pleasure of creating some of America's favorite candy and helping our fans celebrate their sweet moments. We work with the best family of associates a company could ask for and invest in happiness every day. Though Martin Kretchmer couldn't have known his company would go on to touch the lives of so many people, we hope we'll make him proud for generations to come!
These red vines have all sorts of issues but the main one is the packaging. Whatever plastic they are using smells to high heaven of toxic chemicals, which tainted the candy. I remember getting these over the years and they must have changed the plastic because it never was...

It seriosly looked like someone ran over the licorice with a lawn mower. I opened the package and the top layer looked normal like it always is. After munching on the top layer we noticed the pieces getting smaller and by the time the kids got to the middle all the pieces...

I live a little out in the country and the nearest supermarket is a good 25-30 minutes away. Didn’t want to drive out so bought these. The tub came the next day and man the licorice is so soft and fresh! All of my pieces came in whole pieces, so not sure why another...

Just took back a tub of red vines purchased from the store. They weren't as fresh as the ones I USUALLY get .from Amazon. I received my red vines today, only to be disappointed. I could have just kept the ones from the store. THESE ARE NO BETTER. I don't mind paying a...

Big tub of Red Vines! I’m dying of cancer and am still able to eat so I’m eating my favorite foods. The price and free Prime delivery versus going to the store and getting increased exposure to the COVID -19 or any other virus.. it was worth a shot. The freshness is...

This is not what i was looking forward to at all. This product is very thin and soft and breaks apart easily. It also has a strange children's cough syrup type taste to it. My husband was extremely disappointed and we dumped it.
