bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: RJ's Licorice

71IR2yA77XL._SL1241_

It's batch made in Australia, though enquiries are to be directed to their New Zealand office; I buy it from Amazon (U.S.).

About five years ago I got a licorice jones and had my Crack Research Team©®™ drill down and order myriad licorice varieties from around the world.

After an enjoyable month or so trying them all out, RJ's emerged victorious, head and shoulders above the rest.

Five 7 oz foil-lined resealable bags cost $29.99.

Note to those who, like me, grew up in the U.S. thinking Good & Plenty and Twizzlers are licorice: RJ's resembles those about as much as chalk resembles cheese.

Question for my Australia and New Zealand readers: how much does RJ's cost there?

Note to gimlet-eyed readers objecting to my opening sentence above:

It's batch made in Australia

when any fool can plainly see the bag (above and below) says 

 6a00d8341c5dea53ef02b751ae95ed200c-800wi

BATCH MADE IN NEW ZEALAND

That photo accompanies the product listing on Amazon's website.

My Crack Photography Team©™® — all of whom are now required to wear the Official boj Thong©™®*— took shots of my bag of licorice, which you can view below.
