This is a really fun addition for the licorice bowl. Inside is a 'meaty' strong fairly salty black licorice that holds it's own against the intensely fruity candy shell. They are about an inch or so in length and are about a half inch thick. When they are fresh it is very easy to break through the shell and chew merrily away. If you like a tougher chew open them a few days before you want to eat them. Yeah I know, like they will last that long! You can buy Sali Kritz at the Marina Market.
