If these were sold for well over 80+ yrs and remembered fondly just as they were-then leave them alone. As of today ( 8/23/15) I cannot find them anywhere anyway so I suppose this all is a moot point. And I do remember as Larry does above the faint soapy after-taste that set Snaps apart from any other licorice candy. And why was they lead in them to begin with? And I’ll never buy the new version after reading these horror stories.. I grew up in St. Louis where Switzers Licorice was and still reigns as the licorice to have, but boy oh boy I’d love some old-fashioned REAL Snaps. Not all “new and improved” things are what people want.

The new one is acceptable, but certainly not the same. Why not make them the same way? Not as firm either. What do you gain by changing them.? The original ones had a faint soapy after taste that set it apart and became pleasant as you got used to them. That is gone along with the memory of the original.

Absolutely horrible, they taste like an overkill of sassafras leaving a terrible aftertaste. Sad because I too have enjoyed these for 30 yrs. now I can’t even find them and I’m hoping the reason is because they are going back to original recipe. I do hope so because I cannot stomach the new formula.

First the taste was changed, then they disappeared from the shelves. I am disappointed in all the black licorice, but until the change, snaps were they only ones I would buy.

Will they be coming back at the old taste??

Most have just faded away, which is bad enough but to fool with a time tested formula is beyond cruel and unusual punishment. Twizzler did the same thing with their chocolate flavored twizzler. Both are now inedible. The pedestrian tastes of the rising generations is being infused into every aspect of today’s society. There is no taste in art, literature, theater, movies, etc. It used to be that if one was undecerning you could say that their taste was all in their mouth. Now, one can not even say that.

Due to the fact I have a huge addiction to them. I’ve paid big bucks to feed my habit, thank goodness for Amazon. Please bring them back, the same great old taste!!!!!

It was not the same like it was before. I couldn’t detect the delicate balance between thin and dry licorice with powdery slightly sweet sugar coating. On the contrast with the older one, I could taste thicker and wetter wall of less tasty licorice wall with a bit more sugary coating which was not appealing at all to my fondness for strong licorice with less sweet coating. When will we get the original licorice snap back?

Thank you, Christine

I used to buy them at least once a month, but after 2 bags of new and improved, I haven’t wasted my money. On the bright side, that’s one less source of excess calories.
