Customer Reviews:

  • Real licorice
    You can get real licorice in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, England, Finland and even Denmark. But not in the US. We use anise oil. Real licorice is found in RJ's and it makes a huge difference. The flavor is akin to dark chocolate and very nice if you are a licorice fan. ...more info
  • The Dad's loved it.
    I purchased this candy for my father and my father-in-law. They both thought it was some of the best licorice they had ever tasted. They liked the fact that it was soft and easy to chew but the outstanding characteristic was the flavor. Both of them could not stop talking about the natural, "old time" flavor of the candy. I think they will be disappointed if I don't buy it again....more info
  • Great stuff!
    This is simply wonderful licorice with an intense, layered flavor. My Dad's a long-time licorice fan and this stuff gives him a big smile -- so he's getting a four-pack for Christmas!

    Great texture, great flavor, great price....more info
  • The Best Licorice on the Face of the Earth
    Without a doubt, this is the best licorice experience I've had in recent memory. Very soft, delicious flavor.
    Highly recommended!...more info
  • Best Black Licorice Ever
    I bought this licorice for my father for a holiday present. He's extremely fond of black licorice and I've gotten him a variety of different types over the years, both domestic and imported, salty and sweet. He called to tell me that this is the very best licorice he's ever had. Moreover, my mother, who doesn't usually like black licorice was persuaded to try some, and even she enjoyed it. This is excellent licorice for the price. Highly recommended....more info
  • Licorice that ROCKS!
    I love real licorice and this is the best I've ever had. Not rubbery at all--soft and very complex flavors.
    Had to ration it or I would have eaten through 4 bags within the week....more info
  • Not very flavorful
    There is not a lot of flavor in this. I've tried licorice from Australia and Europe and the flavor was much stronger....more info
  • TOO GOOD: MUST HIDE THIS STUFF!!
    I never liked black licorice and always preferred red or chocolate (!) but I now have a taste for black licorice and all I can say about this is, yes, as another reviewer said, this stuff is addictive and wonderful. It's great to eat for a treat but no one should be eating this for dinner. It's too fattening!! Who wants to be a blimp??!! Not me. So I bought 4 bags and knocked off one immediatly, gave away two to very grateful people and have one more hidden in a closet and so far it's been there for a few weeks and I don't dare to open it because it'll be gone in 2 days and I'll be 3 pounds heavier. Yes, somehow a 10.5-ounce bag of goodies will result in more than a 10.5-ounce weight gain!!

    FABULOUS LICORICE!!!...more info
  • Great stuff
    I first ran across RJ's abroad, and was thrilled to find Amazon carrying it (by the way, if Amazon is out, there is a US distributor for this product). This is very good licorice - as others have said, it does take some will power to limit consumption.

    Also, the company that sells it stands behind their product; I once had some issue with an order; they apologized, and sent me a replacement. It is (sadly) rare to find a company that knows what customer service is all about that I'm very happy to continue my orders.

  • It's absolutely THE best licorice ever
    I first tried this licorice on a trip to Australia a few years ago, and have looked for it in the states ever since. I only found it in one store, and that was in Berkeley, CA recently. I am so happy to be able to get it from Amazon because apparently it hasn't reached any midwest stores. It is the softest, freshest, and best tasting black licorice (my sister likes the red) I have ever tasted. I can't eat just one. A bag, maybe....more info
  • RJ's is the Best
    I discovered this licorice in a shop near my office. It actually replaced my afternoon bit of dark chocolate! When the shop suddenly stopped carrying RJ's, I looked all over town for it with no luck. Then, I found it on Amazon and ordered the Pack of 4. This licorice has intense flavor and the texture is delightful(doesn't stick to your teeth!). I will be keeping a supply of RJ's on hand now that I know where to buy it! ...more info
  • Great by itself, plus alternative uses
    This candy is stupendous (it tastes divine with Coca-Cola, especially) -- but if you really like it, you must try dicing it into smaller pieces (pea-sized), and putting it in your home-made vanilla ice cream. It does not work well with chocolate or strawberry, but a good rich vanilla recipe will really bring out the licorice taste and have you coming back again and again for more. And as far as the Coca-Cola goes... well, try some of your new licorce-bit ice cream in a Coca-Cola float, and you'll think you're in heaven....more info
  • Superior Licorice
    RJ's New Zealand Licorice: Soft, perfectly blended in hand batches. True "Old World" licorice. When bought in the 4-pack, price is fairly reasonable. RJ's is one of my "reference" products against which other products are measured. Try it once in your life...or twice...or for the rest of your life!!!...more info
  • Well worth the wait
    We discovered RJ Licorice last spring in a sweet shop and loved its flavor. We just returned from Europe where in Germany and Holland they have every sort of wonderful licorice and some not so good. We returned home and found RJ's of New Zealand here on Amazon and ordered it along with some other brands of licorice and it took about 2 weeks with the free shipping but it was worth it. Give it a RJ's a try as well as some others licorice sold here on Amazon and I'm sure you will delight in them as we do....more info
  • The best licorice you will ever find...
    As a serious licorice consumer, I can honestly say that this is the best licorice that you will ever taste or eat. It is soft and fully flavorful and a treat to put into your mouth....more info
  • The PERFECT Licorice!
    I've never had any other brand of licorice that compared to the perfection of RJ's. The solid tubular pieces are thick and of good satisfying size and chew but the flavor of real natural licorice is what makes this so special and addictive! You'll be glad you get four bags but you may want to order eight or twelve! ...more info
  • Black Licorice
    This licorice had a great taste but the taste was affected by the too soft texture!...more info
  • Excellent
    I consumed heaps of this while on assignment in NZ and was delighted to see it available in the US....more info
  • OUTSTANDING
    Hands down, the BEST black licorice I have
    ever had. From New Zealand! Texture is
    quite soft...not rubbery like others I have
    had. Flavor is full and bountiful! Hooray....more info
  • licorice review
    I found the licorice pleasant tasting and not too sweet and would order more. However, it cannot, in my opinion, compete with Australian Soft Eating Liquorice; this is made in Australia and imported into the UK by Lakeland....more info
  • Not a Winner
    It is odd that my taste buds reported to me the opposite of the reviews here. I'm disappointed by that, as I paid this premium price based on the 5 star reviews.

    I'm old enough to remember "old time" licorice that was sold for 1 cent (even 5 for a penny) and that is the flavor and consistancy that I was looking forward to when I purchased this licorice.

    I have some anise spice in my cupboard for baking, and I just tasted it to make sure that I didn't have my spices mixed up. Based on that comparison; My verdict is that this licorice tastes strongly of anise (NOT licorice).

    I thought it was much too soft. There was no "chew" to it. It was mushy. The only thing I can think to compare it with is a soft cheese, such as Havarti. It is even softer than a mild chedder.

    Sorry... only 2 stars from me....more info
  • Best licorice; it's adicting
    RJ's is difficult to find but it's worth the search. It's the yummiest licorice I've tried....more info
  • Excellent and Super Tasty!
    I am so happy that Amazon is carrying this product!

    This licorice is so much better than what we call licorice here in the US. The flavor of RJ's is amazing - not overly sweet, perfectly balanced, authentic. The mouth feel is totally addictive; you keep reaching your hand in the bag to get another chewy, flavorful piece!

    Definitely a great gift for friends or family who love licorice, or as a treat for yourself!...more info
