My whole family has been brought up on licorice. For as long as I can remember, my nana has had a bowl of the stuff and whenever we go to her house the first place we all beeline to is the kitchen. Growing up mum always brought licorice as a treat and I have followed the tradition and you can always find licorice in the house somewhere.

Because my girls have got the same licorice bug I actually took to hiding these in the vegetable draw and have been having one or two every couple of hours content in the fact I would never be caught out. Last night however, my youngest had a craving for carrots and opened the vegetable draw and looked straight at me. My face dropped and my husband said whats wrong. When she said at the top of her voice, with hands on her hips 'what is this doing in here and can I have one' all I could do was laugh - busted!

I love every flavour when it come to licorice and especially when you add chocolate to the mix. I do admit when I go to the dairy I always end up buying a chocolate licorice log or on occasions the raspberry flavour so I kinda knew what to expect. Except these have a twist to the raspberry so they are more chunkier. The flavour is still spot on and you can taste both components easily. The licorice also gets stuck to your teeth so you get the enjoyment of running your tongue over the little nuggets until they unlodge.

Although I adore these, the flavour is a little sweet and where as with other flavours I can not stop eating them I find with this flavour that you only can eat two at a time or else it becomes too much. Which I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing? I don't think I would buy a packet of these again, only because I prefer other flavours better.

What I like most about these sweets is the way you can eat several in a row without getting a sore mouth! Some licorice can be acidic and cause irritation to the tongue and inner cheeks, but this variety is beautifully smooth and can be eaten ad lib. Maybe that is not so good - I certainly was tempted to eat more than I should have done. However, I consoled myself by checking that the ingredients were high quality with the bonus that rice bran and coconut oils were used instead of palm oil - a plus for the environment.

We ate several apiece before deciding it might be time to put them away to finish another day; there can be too much of a good thing. I don't usually eat much chocolate as it is not my favourite confectionery item, but these twists have the chocolate hidden in the middle. They are fun to eat: whether you suck them slowly or bite into them, there is always that wonderful moment when the chocolate melts and suddenly rushes out to greet you. At that stage it does not really taste of chocolate; it is more of a sweet, sticky mixture that joins the soft raspberry shell to plaster itself on your teeth. That may sound weird, but it is a wonderful sensation. You then spend the next few minutes waiting for it to soften some more and detach itself again. Those minutes should be relished as you can simply stop talking and enjoy the experience.

Because they were so delicious, we decided to eat them as they were straight from the packet. A slight compromise was made as we had some blanched nuts, so thought it would be fun to tip the sweets on to the plate and mix the two. I will admit that the combination of the licorice and nut was much nicer than either on their own; they also looked good on the plate together and would not be out of place as a party dish or an afternoon tea centrepiece.

Because of our lockdown status, I was unable to get the rest of the family to come over and try some as they normally would, so I made sure to keep a few back for them to sample when we next see each other. Knowing that licorice is a favourite for all of them, I am sure they will be appreciated! Meanwhile I will try to keep my hands off them, but it is possible I might need to buy another packet for sharing if I have to wait too long. Who knows?
