Welch's Filled Licorice Review and Giveaway
Frankford Candy and Welch’s have teamed up to create a fruity licorice with fruit filling. Welch's Filled Licorice comes in Strawberry and Concord Grape flavors. These are similar to fruit snacks in texture.
Place them in the fridge until you want to consume them because they do have jelly filling and it will ooze out and make a sticky gooey mess if not cooled first especially in the Summer heat. Also if you are going on a trip and want to eat these on the way, I highly recommend putting them in a cooler with a gel cooler pack or ice! The grape one was better in all of our opinions and tasted very much like it had real grape jelly in the center. They also smell divinely of Concord grape juice. The strawberry was just not as good in my honest opinion. My kids enjoyed both varieties, but also preferred the grape.
I love Welch's 100% juices and their Natural Strawberry and Grape Spreads because they are all natural, but Welch's Filled Licorice has high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes in them. I would rather Welch's make them with healthier ingredients for my family. Even so these were delicious and both packs I received were devoured as soon as they were opened.
Suggested retail price for a 1.75-oz. bag is $1.09, and a 3.5-oz. bag is $1.59 at mass market retailers, grocery, convenience and non-food retailers in America. You can also buy it in bulk (24 1.75-oz. bags) on Amazon.com if you cannot find it anywhere else.
Prize: 3 winners will win 1 bag of Concord Grape and 1 bag of Strawberry each.
