Black Cherry


The dark and luscious Black Cherry Lip Smacker joined the original Lip Smacker line-up sometime in the late 1970's (date TBD). The sweet and succulent Smacker had quite a fan club of its own during its original release in the late 70's, that it's still a mystery why it took so long to stage a comeback. Luckily, in 2014, Bonne Bell/Aspire Brands brought it back after decades of hiding in the darkness, in the Flashback Favorites Biggy trio, along with Vanilla Cream Soda and Dr Pepper. Black Cherry was dressed to impress in a very familiar and stunning vintage wrap, paying homage to its original get-up. You can still purchase the trio today at Target, Rite Aid and Kmart or individually, here.

  1. How does the new black cherry compare to the vintage one?

    1. Different, although the scent is a little faded on the original. The original is quite a bit sweeter smelling, not quite as tart as the new one. Both are very different than original Cherry still.

  2. I have one of these from the 70s. Remember in grade 3 or 4 at recess in the school playground, putting it on and that delicious flavour I wanted to eat it. It still smells the same!! Just the tube has aged.

    1. Hi, Anna! Thanks for sharing your story, I love hearing nostalgic memories of the original 1970's Lip Smackers. I'd love to see your tube if you'd like to email it to me! :)
