Each one of these hollow licorice cylinders is coated in a candy paint that gives each color a unique unidentifiable flavor. The colors green, orange, pink, and white all have a distinct flavor some of which are more enjoyable than others. The white is a nice sweet neutral taste that allows you to enjoy the licorice flavoring the most.

The green, the pink, and the orange hit you with a strangely sweet flavor that slightly throws you off from the licorice, but in the end blends well.  These little snaps are addicting. Even though there are a lot of licorice treats out there that are way better than these snaps, something about them compels you to mix up the flavors and have another.

Maybe it’s because licorice snaps were first introduced in the young 1930’s and people of all ages have been enjoying the exact same candy almost 80 years later. The hollow center makes the hard licorice seem soft and chewy as the strange flavor blends into the licorice, it’s no wonder these snaps have been enjoyed for so many years.
