The Cool Kidz taste different forms of red licorice

The Cool Kidz share their opinions about different type of red licorice including licorice straws and licorice laces

This week we tried red twists and red laces. These are both delicious licorice candies.

The red licorice twists, often packaged as Twizlers, are very easy to be found and come in a variety of sizes. They are classics, and very addictive. In our opinion, they are best used as straws: if the top and bottom ends are bitten off the twist can be put into any drink you desire.

Overall, these red chewy candies are satisfying. On the other hand, red licorice laces are very difficult to find.  In our opinion, they taste best when you knot them, as the flavor becomes stronger.

Red laces, as the name implies, are a red licorice rope of hard chewy candy. The rope comes wrapped up in a big circle and it is hard to resist ripping off a huge string of it.

Who doesn’t like chewing on the end of a piece of candy while the other end of it is dangling at your feet? The rope is also fun to play around with by making licorice bracelets and twirling it around your fingers and biting it off.

This candy is so convenient because you can just bunch some up and stuff it in your pocket and take it with you wherever you go, offering pieces to your friends along the way.  Let us be honest though, this isn’t the soft chewy juicy strawberry red twists licorice. This is a tough red rope of licorice. But despite it’s lack of juiciness it is so fun to eat that it doesn’t even matter!
