    I would love to win these.. I haven’t had them since I was seventeen (a fair few years back now lol) and used to nanny for american families over here in the UK..
    You just can’t beat them for flavour no matter what other liquorice you buy.

    OOoh have heard about these and would love to have the chance to try some! I love anything liquorice, nibbled my way through a humungus bag of liquorice torpedoes the other night! Yummy 🙂 x

    I stupidly gave up sweets for Lent because I eat way too much of the things. I’m now very much regretting this idea! My favs are strawberry laces and making them into plaits and then eating them all. Seeing these as well as seeing a stranded strawberry lace on the street the other day, you have tempted me beyond all temptation with these twizzlers. I have to have something yummy to much on at the end of lent, and this would be a perfect reward! 😛

    I think I should win these because ‘Twizzley’ Describes me so well. You either love me or hate me, like liquorice, and I am a sweetheart like strawberries!

  6. Sophie Shelley says:

    Im a big fan of America’s food and culture, and unfortuantly I haven’t been to America yet but Im saving up every last penny I have, so It would be nice to have a reminder to help me along the way haha. x

    Oh how lovely do these sweeties sound? Mmmmmmmmm love liquorice, love strawberry, love sweeties 😛 Would love to try them 🙂

    The name ‘Twizzlers’ just so reminds me of a certain branded meat product, Turkey Twizzlers, which were absolutely awful. Since taken off the shelves due to lack of meat content, I believe :S Surely the only remedy for for such a bad name association is to eat something delightfully tasty of the same name?? 😀

    Never tried these strawberry laces have tried others ones which my kids like.My youngest son decided to take the laces out of his shoes and put the strawberry laces in them instead,he said they looked good and if he got hungry he could just eat his laces.:)
