Chuckles is a confectionery produced by Farley's & Sathers Candy Company. Chuckles are jelly candies coated with a light layer of sugar. They come in five flavors: cherry, lemon, lime, orange, and licorice. Each package of Chuckles contains one piece of each flavor, in the order cherry, lemon, licorice, orange, lime. The candies are made with corn syrup, sugar, modified and unmodified cornstarch, and natural and artificial flavors and colors.
The Chuckles brand was first produced in 1921 by Fred W. Amend. The only factory was in Danville, IL. Nabisco bought the Chuckles Company in 1970. A management buyout occurred in 1986, and the company was quickly acquired by Leaf. Leaf's US properties were sold to The Hershey Company in 1996, and Hershey sold Chuckles to Farley's & Sathers in 2002, and merged with Ferrara Pan in 2012, forming the Ferrara Candy Company.
The standard pack of Chuckles has 5 colors, red, green, yellow , orange, and purple. With colors such as red indicating the flavor strawberry, and green indicated the flavor of lime. Some packs contain only a just single type of flavor, most popular being the strawberry flavor. 
Chuckles were one of the first mainstream jelly candy's to be released on the market, as evidenced by few if any records showing any existing competitors around or before its time. However this is subject to debate as records and memory's can be lost.
