Pomegranate Licorice Twists are a tasty addition to the Newman's Own line. They really captured the essence of pomegranate in these twists, something that's not so easy to do. While I enjoy the taste, I found them a little tough, even though the "best before" date on my package is for March 2012. I expected them to be a little softer, but the chewiness didn't hinder my enjoyment of the product overmuch. However, it did cause them to get stuck in my teeth. It was a while after eating before the last traces of these twists were dissolved.
Here's a list of the ingredients:
Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Sugar, Corn Syrup, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Vegetable Glycerin, Sunflower Oil, Elderberry Extract, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, Licorice Root Extract.
The twists are part of Newman's Own Organics division, started by Nell Newman. Organic is great, but it translate into a costlier product. Comparable Strawberry Twist Twizzlers are about half the price and are fewer calories per piece, yet have half the iron and protein of the Pomegranate Twists. Twizzlers taste about as good and are softer too. Consumers must decide for themselves if it is worth a premium price for a snack product very similar to the competition. If you value (mostly) healthy ingredients and enjoy exotically flavored licorice, then it just may be worth it to you.
