licorice-red-rasp-1Red licorice is one of my favorite candies. I remember when the Twizzlers came out – I don’t remember when it was but I do remember thinking I liked the REAL red licorice better. I rarely bought Twizzlers.

These days, Twizzlers are all I can find. They work to satisfy a craving and they’re alright, but..

Where has all the red licorice gone?

I can’t find it at any of the stores in town,…I haven’t looked recently so I’m not sure..can I find it at Walmart? Or do I have to go to a candy store, like in the mall or something. Cuz I can tell you right now that’s not going to happen any time soon.

Sometimes a girl just has a craving for licorice.


I guess the Twizzlers will have to do.


Tell me: Do you prefer the real red licorice or the Twizzlers? (Or do you know?)

***P.S. Yes, I KNOW that red licorice isn’t actually licorice flavored – it’s kinda like calling white chocolate “chocolate” when there’s no actual cocoa in it. But before you get your feathers ruffled, please know that I ALSO like black licorice and other anise flavored things, particularly black jelly beans. MMm!

***P.P.S. – after looking, I see that “Twizzlers” has actually been around a long time, but originally really was licorice flavored. In 1990 they began introducing other flavors (strawberry, chocolate, cherry and watermelon) and that is most likely when I found them, mistaking the innocent, red, licorice-looking candy for the real thing. 😉

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
