Red 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. 😉
