RJ's Licorice was started by the Halliwell family in their home country of New Zealand.

And, since this candy originated in New Zealand, they already had the Kiwi know-how and ingenuity.

Gave as gift. Super soft. Recipient never asked for another bag, but she ate the one I got her! Good licorice flavor, not ridiculously strong.

I love black licorice, always have. My Nana introduced to me it telling me that it was good for digestion. What did I know, I liked it (or thought I did). Once I tried RJ’s Licorice I realized that what I used to eat was a poor example of licorice. RJ’s licorice is the best - soft and flavorful! I guess it’s true what I had heard - New Zealand is the country that makes authentic licorice! Every order I place has RJ’s licorice.

I purchased 15 bags and they were all hard. We had to put them in the microwave to soften them
