Swiss Licorice is a delicious gourmet treat
The flavor of Swiss Licorice is intense & long-lasting. Comparing it to my childhood favorite, gluten-filled black licorice pipes, I would say that while the Swiss is neither bitter nor overpowering, yet it has a flavor that is deeper and mellower than the childhood favorite.
These candies are called “hard” but they are not hard like a brittle lifesaver. Rather, the texture is semi-hard, allowing the candy to dissolve very slowly in the mouth — at a much slower rate than livesavers, IME. The long-lasting nature of the candy texture, combined with the intense flavor, makes for a unique taste experience.
While the price of this product seems a bit high, I’ve found on balance that Swiss licorice is a bargain, for both the pocket-book and the diet. Two drops per day gives me about 1/2 hour of satisfying licorice-flavored snacking.
My only complaint is, this licorice is quite addictive. I don’t miss jawing down on hard licorice ropes at all.
If the company would come out with a cherry-flavored (think red Nibs) licorice as well, my gluten-free licorice dreams will be completely fulfilled.
