Newman’s Own Organics introduces the first sour licorice twist made with organic ingredients. Licorice twists are the most popular kind of licorice candy and the organic sugar and sour crystals, derived from natural citrus sources, on the surface of the twists provides the special taste for our four tantalizing new flavors: Sour Strawberry, Sour Cherry, Sour Mango and Sour Apple. With the popularity of our regular twists in Black, Strawberry, and Pomegranate, we felt our customers would also enjoy the chance to try these sour ones that offer a different taste experience.
“When I was a kid I loved licorice because it was so much fun to eat. I loved the chewy texture, and you could stretch it and tie it in knots, or bite off the ends and blow through it”, said Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman’s Own Organics. “Now I can enjoy our own tasty organic version of my favorite childhood candy! It’s also a great treat for the movies, as it’s much quieter to eat than popcorn,” The five ounce package is great for keeping in your desk at work, having as a snack at home, in your car while doing errands, or out hiking. The smaller package is also a good economic choice. Health conscious consumers will appreciate that the rich tasting candy is low in fat, sodium and cholesterol free, and contains no trans-fat.
