Product Review ~ Newman's Own Organics Licorice

Do you love licorice? Have you ever tried organic licorice? If you have never tried organic licorice you are really missing out! Today I would like to talk to you about the fabulous company called Newman's Own Organics who has a line of organic licorice products.

The Newman's Own Organics licorice line includes 4 delicious flavors! You can purchase the classic black licorice and strawberry flavored licorice or you can step outside the box and try their pomegranate and tangerine flavors. All of their licorice is made with certified organic sugar and they are low fat! They have no artificial flavorings and no artificial colorings. Standard serving size is 5 licorice twists which are about 130 calories per serving.

My Review: I received 4 packs of Newman's Own Organics Licorice to try out with my family for this product review. We received one 5 oz. package of each of the 4 flavors that they make. First up, I like the taste and texture of this licorice. It's not a sour or bitter taste but a nice taste that leaves no after-taste in your mouth. The licorice is soft and chewy and not hard like a rock like some other brands. I shared my licorice stash with a few of the gals in my walking group as an after walk treat. We all liked the licorice but we each had different favorites. My 2 personal favorites were the Pomegranate and Tangerine...guess I am a fruity type of gal. My friend Kathy and my daughter Jenelle both fell in love with the strawberry and trust me...those two were bribing each other on who was getting the last licorice twist! My friend Mary and my husband Sam both were in love with the classic black.

Overall Impression: I was really impressed with this organic licorice. The only flavor I didn't personally try was the black as I knew I wouldn't like it as I am not a black licorice fan. However, I did try the other 3 flavors and enjoyed them a lot. Would I ever buy these products? You bet! The 3 flavors that I did try...I liked! They were flavorful, soft and very chewy. I don't like brick hard licorice and this is certainly not that! I am definitely going to pick up a few packages of Newman's Own Organics Licorice and keep it on hand for when I get in the licorice mood!
