Sometimes a product sample comes my way that just knocks my socks off. Such is the case with the new Natural Vines premium licorice I received last week. Natural Vines black- and strawberry-flavored licorice, available this month and made by the family-owned American Licorice Company, contain no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, no high-fructose corn syrup, and are soft and absolutely delicious. (Did you know that licorice is the #2 premium candy in America, after chocolate?) If you or someone you love has a hankering for licorice, look for Natural Vines at natural markets and gourmet stores starting this month.
