George Robert Nelson cooked the first batch of RedVines and is principally responsible for the creation of the candy. He was given the formula on a piece of scratch paper by then president of The American Licorice Company, Clarence Kretchmer, in 1952. Nelson attempted around 10 variations of the formula searching for the right flavoring before arriving at the recipe that went into production. Nelson adjusted the flavor profile a few years later by removing salt. The only other change made to the original recipe was the removal of cooking oil in the 1960's to make the candy a fat-free product. Nelson began working for the American Licorice Company in 1949, became the Chairman of the Board in 1970 and continues as an active board member.

In the 1950s American Licorice Co. expanded beyond traditional black licorice and began producing Raspberry Vines. Unlike black licorice, which uses extract from the Glycyrrihiza glabra bush root for its flavoring, red licorice has a fruitier taste. The public called it red licorice because of its similarities in format and texture to the original black. Later Raspberry Vines were renamed Red Vines® and the packaging was updated with the addition of a tray in 1958. Though sales were slow with red candy in the beginning, eventually red candy became a much bigger seller than black. In 1963 American Licorice produced unwrapped Red Ropes and Licorice Ropes, the longest pieces of licorice to hit the market. The pieces that were formally cut up to make the Lic-Ris-Ets became the rope candy. Later that decade, American Licorice began wrapping the ropes individually, thus creating the Super Ropes® brand.
