When I was first contacted about doing a product review on Welch’s new filled licorice, I was a little skeptical if I would like it or not. I do enjoy licorice, but the idea of jelly in a stick of licorice? Hmm…Interesting I guess?!? Not saying it would not be good, but sometimes I have a texture issue with foods, and I was not sure about the jelly inside the licorice. In my mind I was imagining the fruit snacks with juice inside, not one of my favorites. Within a few days of agreeing to do the product review, my box arrived…It was time!
I have always been a fan of Strawberry, so of course that was the first bag I opened. The immediate strawberry scent after opening peeked my interest further.
First bite… WOW! GREAT Strawberry taste, licorice texture with a small hint of jelly, NOT a runny jelly though.
Second bite…Hmm…Kind of like a fruit snack, but better flavor, not waxy and blah.
Third bite, OH YES, this is going to be a new favorite!
Now it is time to try the Concord Grape…But first…Just one more stick of Strawberry!
Concord Grape, Same amazing smell when I open the Concord Grape Welch filled licorice, VERY pleasant. Biting into it, I immediately am remembering a childhood flavor…”What is that?” I think to myself!
HUBBA BUBBA GRAPE GUM…That is the flavor! I NEED to have my husband and son try these! Needless to say, they both REALLY enjoyed them, and my son enjoyed them so much that I only ended up getting that original stick from the bag, and since the original “Taste Test” My son has bought the grape bags twice.
Welch’s filled licorice is the first licorice of its kind, it is made with REAL FRUIT JUICE! Together Frankford Candy LLC and Welch’s have partnered to make an AMAZING new licorice for adults and children which I am SURE will be a very big hit!
Welch’s Filled Licorice is available in Concord Grape and Strawberry at retailers across America. You can purchase them in 1.75 oz (Suggested Retail Price $1.09) and 3.5 oz (Suggested Retail Price $1.59)
I did receive free product to do this review, but at no time was I compensated for this trial or review, the opinions and views are mine alone.
