Yes, that's a headline, and it's also the name of our new red licorice. Trader Joe's Cast off the Licorice Lines are chewy, strawberry-flavored licorice ropes – 'lines' in nautical lingo – that are good alternatives to the artificially-flavored red licorice candies found in most markets. Ours are made for us without all the artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetic colors used by most candymakers. We actually use natural strawberry flavor to make them taste strawberry-like, and they get their red shade from elderberry extract. Best part is, when you're in the mood for red licorice, Cast off the Licorice Lines really satisfy in both the taste and texture departments.
They also satisfy in the price department. We're selling each 14 ounce package for $2.99, a terrific value, every day.
