Nell says "A New Twist To Our Candy Line
Newman's Own Organics introduces the first licorice twist made with organic ingredients. Licorice twists are the most popular kind of licorice candy and the twists are available in today's favorite flavors, Black and Strawberry, along with two new fruit flavors, Pomegranate and Tangerine. The suggested retail price for the 5 oz. package is $2.99.
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. Now I can enjoy our own tasty organic version of my favorite childhood candy in four different flavors.
It's also a great treat for the movies, as it's much quieter to eat than popcorn," said Nell Newman, co-founder and president of Newman's Own Organics. "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.
