I found these licorice twists in Whole Foods the other week. Usually I skip over the candy aisle in that place, since I’ve tried most of it and new products show up rarely. I was lucky to pass through and see these twists by accident. I immediately scooped them up, since I don’t get to have good licorice things often. I also really love the idea of licorice twists, but have yet to find a kind that I truly enjoy.
The twists are very pretty. They actually look like vine charcoal. They almost have a dusty look to them. They smell faintly of licorice.
I am happy to see that molasses and licorice root are both listed on the ingredients list. I take my first bite and I immediately love what I’m tasting. These are very molasses heavy licorice twists. They have a nice thick chew, and a really silky licorice flavor. It’s only slightly herbal, with a nice sweet smoothness from the molasses. These are way better than any type of mainstream licorice twist I’ve had to date.
I really am smitten with these. If you’re a fan of licorice at all, or are looking fora good licorice candy to try for your first time, I really recommend these. Yum!
