The other day I posted about Nigger Boy Licorice, a brand of sweet that was popular in Australia for many years up until the mid-1960s when it was suddenly realised that people found the name Nigger Boy to be offensive rather than amusing. I don’t know much about this brand of sweet, and would really appreciate any information. I do know that the factory/shop that produced these sweets was based in Hawthorn Road Caulfield, about 500 metres from where I now work which is in the heart of Melbourne‘s ‘bagel belt’. I do have a few various offensive advertisements that the company made.
