Panda All Natural Licorice Raspberry -- 7 oz
I love it, and I eat it almost every day.
If you're expecting Twizzlers, you won't like Panda (I used to love Twizzlers but now find the taste disgustingly artificial).
Panda is sweet (but not overly so) + fruity, and it tastes like real ingredients (not chemicals). The molasses gives it a slightly complex undertone (sorry if that sounds pretentious!).
If you're moving away from chemical-laden candy, first try Newman's Own licorice (sweeter than Panda and less dissimilar to Twizzlers), then move to Panda. (No disrespect to Newman's Own, which is also very good, but I now prefer Panda -- the slight molasses undertone makes it tastier and much more satisfying, whereas the sweetness of NO makes me crave more sugar, which isn't so good.)

I have never liked any of the other flavors that Panda makes. But, my husband purchased some of the Raspberry and they are very good. I couldn't stop eating them. They also don't have refined sugar, they are only sweetened with juice, so I don't feel so guilty eating too many.

Terrible; no one wants to eat them!
They were overpriced & were a waste of $.

Soft and yummy and all great ingredients!
This is the first time I bought this and my husband and I love it. We purchased the plain flavor also and we just love it. Great for a snack or for when you just want the taste of something sweet but don't want to "cheat" too much. Very good.
