Don't you just love licorice? I do, especially when it is all natural! For this review I received one bag of black licorice and one bag of strawberry licorice, from Natural Vines Licorice. What can I say, except that they are delicious, especially the black licorice. Every time time I go shopping I buy licorice, I figure that it taste great, it's not bad for you and it's a great snack! This would be a great snack for anytime and anywhere. So, indulge and grab a bag of licorice.
