Original Snaps – A snap decision with tragic consequences

I spotted this bag on a candy display in Michael’s. I’d never seen them before, so I thought Original Snaps (BUY) would be a great review candidate, even though I couldn’t tell exactly what they were. Since the store was closing and the cashiers were shutting down their stations, I was in a hurry to get out, and I didn’t look closely at the package. When I got to the car, I turned the bag over and saw this:

Nooooo! I know some people love licorice, but I find it nasty! I tried one and immediately spit it out the second I started tasting the licorice. The snap was pretty unenjoyable even before I hit the licorice. I’m sorry this review is not very good, but I think I’ve repressed the memory of this taste test, and I just can’t bring myself to eat another one. Sera at Candy Addict didn’t think much of them either, and she actually likes licorice!


The moral of the story is, if you’re going to make an impulsive purchase, at least know what you’re getting into. And candy makers should always put the description on the FRONT of the package.
