Recent;y I was offered the opportunity to try a new candy, Welch’s Filled Licorice.
ABOUT WELCH’S FILLED LICORICE
Welch’s Filled Licorice combines a soft licorice outside with a flavorful filling inside. The unique jelly filling is made with real fruit juice and fruit pectin to deliver real fruit flavors. This new one-of-a-kind licorice treat is a blend of soft and chewy textures with a bold, real fruit filling.
“We at Frankford Candy are tremendously excited about the debut of Welch’s Filled Licorice,” says Kurt Dungan, VP of Marketing for Frankford Candy, makers of Welch’s Filled Licorice. “Our goal with Welch’s was to create a unique, great-tasting product that consumers will love. Welch’s Filled Licorice, combines the bold, fruit flavors you’d expect from Welch’s with a soft, smooth licorice texture that the whole family will enjoy.”
I received samples of Welch’s Filled Licorice in both Concord Grape and Strawberry flavors. My favorite flavor is the Strawberry, the flavor is sort of like jam or preserves inside of licorice. Instead of a thicker piece of licorice, the licorice is a hollow tube filled with a soft fruit filling. It’s soft and chewy, not tough to bite or chew. I like that the filling is has real fruit juice. I actually think I like this new filled licorice better than regular licorice.
Welch’s Filled Licorice is available in Concord Grape and Strawberry flavors. It is offered in 1.75 oz (SRP $1.09) and 3.5oz (SRP $1.59). Welch’s Filled Licorice are distributed by Frankford Candy LLC.
