bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: RJ's Batch-Made Soft New Zealand Licorice from Licorice International

For the past couple months, for no reason that's apparent, I've been on a licorice kick, discovering and trying new brands from around the world.

My current favorite: RJ's.

This is not the Good & Plenty or black twists from that tall jar of your childhood; rather, this is sui generis.

Try it, you'll like it (if you like licorice).

If not, the bookofjoe Guarantee©® will stop your loss: I'll cheerfully refund every penny you paid for it.

$4.50 for a 7.05 oz. bag from Licorice International.

And yes, it does matter where you buy your licorice: Amazon's has been spotty in terms of its freshness whereas that from Licorice International is always perfect.

Please read the FDA warnings on eating too much licorice.

Jerry Garcia: “We're like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice.”

I have had RJ's licorice, too. It is one of my all-time favorites. I am not happy that the place I bought it from does not always carry it.
