Need A Sweet Stocking Stuffer Idea?
Attention licorice aficionados! Have I got a licorice for you!! It’s Anya’s Licorice. If you’ve never tried this brand, I’m telling you you’ve probably never had a licorice like this one!! When I tried it, all I could say was, “Wow!”
Licorice has been around for as long as I can remember and I’ve tried a few brands, but nothing is like Anya’s. It’s very unique in texture, flavor, and strength and varieties of flavor.
Pleasant Texture For A More Pleasant Licorice
The usual licorice I’ve tried in the past is fairly tough to chew. Anya’s is softer and more pleasant to chew (you don’t have to yank on it with your teeth), but it’s also not too soft (which would be kind of weird and probably not licorice anymore). In fact, I quite enjoy the texture and much prefer it compared to other licorice brands.
Great Flavors And Quality You Can Chew On
As for flavor, I prefer red over black licorice. When I tried Anya’s black licorice it definitely had the traditional black licorice taste, but it seems more pure and of higher quality. So, I do think that people who enjoy the black variety will enjoy Anya’s.
I also mentioned Anya has a variety of other licorice flavors, which include strawberry, mango, raspberry, and cherry. What I like about these is that they are made from real fruit, which you can definitely tell from the taste. My absolute favorite is the mango!!
Anya also ensures she’s providing a high quality licorice. For example, according to the product website, each candy only contains 5 ingredients. The licorice is also made with real fruit or licorice root (depending on the flavor), with no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors, and no preservatives. They are fat free and between 90 to 100 calories per serving. In my opinion, the above almost makes this a healthier candy (at least as healthy as candy can be).
According to the product website, “Brooklyn Magazine recommends . . . Anya’s Licorice as one of ‘Brooklyn’s Best Bespoke Halloween Candies.'” Anya’s licorice was also “a finalist in Martha Stewart’s American Made 2015 contest” (taken from Anya’s website). That’s pretty cool in my book to make it on a Martha Stewart list!
Where Can I Buy Anya’s Licorice?
Christmas is coming up and if you know anyone that likes or loves licorice, I highly recommend Anya’s. This is definitely an affordable gift and the perfect stocking stuffer for those who enjoy licorice! You can purchase the candy on the product’s website here. It’s also available for purchase on Amazon.
