You can’t deny that every drink tastes better through a licorice twist straw whether you are drinking juice out of a cup or slurping water from a water fountain.

Just because you aren’t a kid anymore does not mean that you can’t bite off the ends and make a straw of your licorice. There is no law stating that once you have kids you aren’t allowed to act like kids.

Chocolate Licorice straws are especially good for drinking milk and chocolate milk. When you go to eat the wet the end of the straw you can feel that it has dissolved a little bit and has a nice new temperature that makes the last bite a little different from the rest. 

It is hard to say whether the strawberry licorice or chocolate licorice  is better because it only depends on your are in the mood. They share the delicious soft, chewy, juicy, twizzler-like consistency and they each have their unique flavor’s goodness–but I sure don’t know anyone who would ever turn down a chocolate covered strawberry.

Mixing different flavors of candy is never a mistake, even if the combination doesn’t entice you to have another it is always worth the try to find out.

We all know about Twizzlers, at least we all should. Young and Smylie (Y&S) Company manufactures this delicious strawberry licorice candy. Y&S was established in 1845 and was bought by Hershey Foods in 1977.

Y&S originally introduced Twizzlers in 1845 as black licorice, but as of 1990 Twizzlers are produced in strawberry, chocolate, cherry, and watermelon in varying shapes and sizes.

 Now, you can find little nibs licorice, which are bite size pieces, you can find Pull ‘n’ Peel or rainbow Twizzlers, and you can always get the regular Twizzlers that you get at the concession stand at the movies.

But, one kind of Twizzler you can’t find everywhere is the individually wrapped Twizzler.

Individually wrapped Twizzlers are a great table candy for parties–– even Bar Mitzvah parties because this is a Kosher candy–– especially if you worry about people touching more than they take, and at this time of year preventing the spread of the swine.

What these are best for though is grabbing when you are on the go. Instead of buying a whole pack where you end up eating every Twizzler whether or not you want to, you can limit your intake by eating one now, and one in a little bit, and saving one for later… quite convenient if you ask me. 

Fun Fact: The longest licorice twist ever made was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records on July 19, 1998 at 1,200 feet and 100 pounds.
