I miss them so much, but I refuse to buy the disgusting tasting ones they make now. What a shame! I’ve tried knock offs but they don’t quite cut it.

I am a bit disappointed that this “New version” seems to not meet the quality of the old origional version of Snaps! Whats up with the change?? Why did it have to be changed?? If it was the lead….PLEASE simply put it back in!!! Take some pride in your product and go back to making it the old way…the RIGHT WAY!!! We are in need of the Snaps – Please hear us out here crying for the good stuff!! Thank you

First they told me they were recalled,Then they came back with a new formula, TOTALLY awful! I was told that American Licorice bought-out Snaps and this is what you get now. Well, what a disappointment. This new “Original Flavor” has the taste and texture of a gummy bear that they forgot to add in the flavor. American Licorice please bring back the real “Original Flavor” or sell the Snaps back to it’s “Original Company”. You and Tootsie Roll are ruining so many classic candies!

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.
