TRADER JOE'S Soft Strawberry Licorice Twists
About This Item
We had a feeling you’ve been dying to know more about licorice, so we’ve pulled together some fun facts. The licorice plant, a perennial herb, belongs to the pea family. There are 20 different species of the plant that grow on five continents. The sweet substance, glycyrrhizin, in licorice root is fifty times sweeter than sugar. And, finally, Trader Joe’s now sells Soft Strawberry Licorice Twists!
The perfect licorice is hard to come by—it should be soft yet chewy, and made with real licorice root. Thanks to a small, family-owned business in New Zealand, this is exactly that. Our Strawberry Licorice Twists are made with natural strawberry flavor, licorice extract (a rare ingredient to find in strawberry or other red fruit-flavored licorice candies), and colored with naturally available fruit and vegetable juice concentrates. To top it off, our licorice supplier developed the perfect method of cooking and cooling licorice, so the pieces are soft and stay soft without the use of preservatives.
