Comments on: Licorice Snaps: The New Formula http://www.candyfavorites.com/blog/licorice-snaps-the-new-formula/ From America's Oldest Wholesale Candy Company Wed, 23 Jul 2014 02:10:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 By: Susan P http://www.candyfavorites.com/blog/licorice-snaps-the-new-formula/#comment-173344 Wed, 23 Jul 2014 02:10:49 +0000 http://www.candyfavorites.com/blog/?p=3491#comment-173344 This new rendition of Licorice Snaps is awful. 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.

They were sold in boxes. At the time, I thought how appropriately they were named because when you bit into them they would snap apart in your mouth. In other words the licorice was dryer than what’s in the product today. I bought a bag yesterday and found the licorice very soft and chewy, e.g. stick to your teeth chewy!!!. Sorry, you’ve now lost me as a customer because I dislike the new product so much.

That is my reaction to the new Snaps formula. They have no business to advertise same great flavor on the packaging as it is grossly different and just plain GROSS! I will not purchase these again (so sad).

I purchased some at Walgreens. They had ‘Same great taste’. Ha what a joke. They destroyed there product. I wrote the company and never obtained a response. I also wrote Walgreens. Since I last tried the ‘New Snaps’ Walgreens at least in my area no longer carries them. It is sad when some young snot at a company destroys the product. Unless they go back to the old Snaps I will never buy them again.
