Licorice and Other Treats for Easter

Tired of the "same old-same old" in your Easter basket? This year, let the Easter bunny bring a surprise: Licorice and other treats from Licorice International.

In order to receive your candy in time for Easter, please order by noon on Monday, April 18th.

You can fill the basket with your favorite licorice, but keeping with the Easter theme: we especially recommend the following:

Sour Stars: Kids love sour things. There's something thrilling about biting into a sugar-coated sour candy. Sour stars are a big hit with kids, plus the bright colors remind you of spring flowers and new life. They're gluten free too.

Mini Pastels: These pretty little candies are the perfect Easter treat for a licorice lover. Mini pastels have a sweet candy coating over a delicate licorice. They look great in an Easter egg or in a bowl or basket.

Ultimate Licorice Jelly Beans: Do you always pick out the black jelly beans? Save yourself the trouble and buy these pectin licorice jelly beans. We all agree that the black ones are the best, so why other with the others? These special jelly beans are made by Gimbals and are Kosher, nut free, transfat free, gelatin free, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. Plus they taste terrific. No wonder they're the Ultimate Licorice Jelly Beans.

A Team-Building Activity at Licorice International

Are you looking for a fun activity for your club or group? Here's an idea: Take a Taste 'n Tour at Licorice International.

That's what this group of coworkers from the Patient Financial Services/Accounting department at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska did as a team-building exercise.

Elizabeth shared a bit of the history of the business with a look behind the scenes at the internet fulfillment area. Ardith gave lots of samples and took photos.

What a brave group! They all tried black licorice and from the purchases they made, I think they liked it.

What Kind of People Like Black Licorice? Red Licorice?

Do you prefer black licorice or red licorice? Have you ever wondered what that says about your personality?

According to a survey done by the American Licorice Company, people who prefer red licorice see themselves as sensible, practical, and down-to-earth. They tend to be more pragmatic and conservative, and they like to have things planned as opposed to leaving things to chance.

Black licorice fans consider themselves more wild and crazy. They like spontaneity and the thrill of adventure and are more likely to be outspoken, freely share their opinions with others and often fell as though they're going a million miles an hour.

What do you think? Does your personality match the kind of licorice you prefer?  You can take the survey here.
