Will Snaps ever be brought back to the original formula that we dedicated Snaps lovers all came to enjoy. I rather eat the ones with the lead in them than the newly formulated ones. Snaps makers please listen to your dedicated customers (or you will lose us)

None of the bags I’ve purchased in the last maybe 10 months has said “new improved chewy center” or whatever. They taste just like they used to. I didn’t like the new formula but I found that if I left the bag open for a while they hardened up a bit which helped with the taste.

No more.

The new snaps are HORRIBLE in almost every way possible…taste, texture and even the new uniform shape/length. I immediately returned every bag of this now vile product to the store.

Sadly, a recipe change was not even required. Per the American Licorice Company the licorice in Snaps was not a part of the lead recall (different formula) and therefore did not need to be pulled from store shelves or changed in any way.

So sad.

I will never buy Snaps again (unless they bring back the “original recipe”).

I stop to look at the product when I happen to be in a Walgreen’s but I can see it’s the same fat, bloaded, over-soft product and I walk away. Let it sit open for a week and it’s more palatable but the flavor isn’t right. The licorice has too little licorice flavor. The licorice is too thick and too soft.

When asked what candy would I choose if I had to pick just ONE candy to ever eat again, I said Licorice Snaps without hesitation. Since the formula change, I don’t say Licorice Snaps.

I also won’t buy the product. For licorice, I’ll buy Panda’s black licorice bars instead. Nice but when I want a Licorice Snap, I want the original goodness.

Snaps had a unique flavor and texture unmatched by any other candy or licorice. Now, like so many other food items, its a non descript, empty, bland boring waste of money. The “new” version envokes memories of nothing and makes me wish someone in charge would just admit this dismal failure and correct it before we forget Snaps. I don’t fault people for trying something new but this is a giant step back and American Licorice Co. should admit their mistake and go back to the real original formula.

I have loved Snaps since a child in the 50s I would buy a box to enjoy, even most of the other kids thought licorice was yucky! Well, I now think that the “new,” but definitely NOT improved, Snaps are yucky! Matter of fact, my grandchildren even liked the old Snaps, but now they prefer red licorice instead.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the old delicious licorice Snaps I so loved and called my favorite candy for the last 50+ years!

They are softer and they don.t have a real good licorice flavor, but I will continue to buy them.
