Recently,we received Welch's Filled Licorice to try. As soon as I opened the box, my kids gathered around, eagerly awaiting what happened to be inside! As soon as I opened it, I tore into the grape and the intense fruit smell nearly drove me mad! I don't even like licorice, but this was really good! My kids were even more excited and they could have easily devoured the entire package within minutes. I had to stop them, but first, the temptation was too great. I had to taste the strawberry! Let's just say, I wasn't disappointed! Neither were the kids!Welch’s to develop an delicious new entry into the rapidly growing licorice category.
