Summer is here and I know your little ones would love a yummy snack. We recently received 2 products that my kids were excited to review. They were the Grape and Strawberry filled licorice from Welch's.
We had planned a trip to the park and I always pack their lunch to take with us. I decided to include some of the licorice as a nice surprise snack for them.
After playing at the park for awhile we sat down to have lunch. They opened their lunch sacs and were pleansantly surprised on the treat they had waiting for them. They immediately began eating their lunch so they could have the treat. They loved them. My son's favorite was the strawberry and my daughter loved them both!! They said they taste just like grapes and strawberries. They also said they really liked the filling on the inside. We normally buy a different kind of licorice that has no filling on the inside. They said they no longer want that and want these all of the time.
We had some left over, in which my hubby got into and ate the rest..LOL
As you can tell they were a big hit with our family.
Here is some info about the product.
