Is red licorice really licorice?

I just answered this on
The answer to this depends on the specific product you are talking about. Real licorice contains licorice extract. Period. So Red Vines, Twizzlers and many of the fruity flavored 'licorice' are not real licorice. Products like RJ's Soft Raspberry Licorice from New Zealand and Australia's Darrell Lea Licorice in Raspberry, Mango, Green Apple and Strawberry flavors ALL contain Real Licorice Extract. So these are considered real licorice. All of these product can be found at which boasts 380+ kinds of real licorice.
