The Case for Twizzlers
Are Twizzlers the oldest licorice brand in the world? Probably not, but they DO date all the way back to 1845 when they were introduced by Young & Smylie.
Today Twizzlers are produced by Hershey's and come in a range of flavours, as you'll see here at American Soda.
In 1998 Twizzlers entered the Guinness Book of World Records. The Y&S Candy Plant in Lancaster, Pennsylvania created the longest licorice ever, measuring 1,200 feet and weighing 100 pounds!
The Case for Red Vines
Classic. Original. Authentic.
That's how Red Vines describes themselves and we can't argue. As premium licorice goes, this is by FAR the best one we know!
