I have been a huge fan of RJ's licorice for as long as I can remember, especially of their raspberry licorice. When I saw that RJ's had released a new product in my favourite flavour raspberry just in time for their 21st birthday I was beyond excited, as was my partner and Miss 4 as we are always delighted to see new products from one of our favourite confectionery companies!

As soon as I got home with this product for review there was no waiting around to sample this, it was opened within minutes with a eager 4 year old and 34 year old gathered around me to ensure that they weren't going to miss out on what was hoped to be a very tasty treat. Opening up the packet I was surprised to see the neat black tray inside the packaging which held the licorice straps tidily in place, I thought this was a great way to package such a product as I could imagine that without such packaging the product may not remain in nice long straps as it is meant to. I had previously read on the pack of the packaging that each pack has approximately 6 serves in it (with each serve consisting of 1 licorice strap) and after seeing the generous length of each of the straps I thought this was a fair amount of serves per pack, however as I counted each of the straps in the pack I soon found that I didn't have 6 straps of licorice, but I infact had 10 straps of licorice, even better!

I have to say I was a bit concerned that the straps may not separate from each other very easily, however I was very wrong I had no problems at all with pulling one strap off the next, however I would suggest that these aren't left out in the heat as by doing so I could imagine this problem may occur. The licorice was rather chewy and hard to bite I found, which is not something I often find with the RJ's brand and unfortunately the taste my partner and I thought was quite weak and not as strong and raspberry taste as we would have liked, Miss 4 loved it however and we were still happy to eat the remainder of the packet up. I could imagine due to the thinness of the straps that these would be great to use for decorating birthday cakes and such where you needed to create animal whiskers, fences or even a red carpet, as through testing these were really easy to cut!

Sadly these were not the best product that I have sampled from RJ's and so probably not something I would rush out and buy again unless for decorating purposes as there are many other yummy RJ's products I would prefer to have. In saying that just because there not quite my cup of tea doesn't mean they won't be yours. Happy birthday RJ's I can see why your products are still going strong after 21 years!
