Rj’s Licorice from New Zealand

Carnal Knowledge, Same Time Next Year, Hannah and Her Sisters, Moonstruck, The Untouchables, Midnight Run, Lethal Weapon II, Look Who’s Talking, The Accountant

What do all these movies have in common?

They all have accountants… and the accountants all ate RJ’s Soft Black Licorice at tax time!

Okay, not really. But they’d have been happier if they had. Because RJ’s is simply the best licorice we’ve ever tasted. It’s as different from those waxy Red Vines as a just-picked, sun-warmed garden tomato is from those pale impostors at the grocery store.

Just about every day, when customers stop by our store here in Seattle, we offer them a little licorice log (after they’ve tasted all the new California olive oils). They say, “Oh, I’m not really a big licorice fan.” But they try it – and they’re hooked. They buy a bag for their friend, for their mom, and of course, one to keep stashed in the glove compartment.

RJ’s is licorice like it used to be. Nothing artificial, not sickly sweet – just real, licorice flavor and super-satisfying, chewy texture. (Disclaimer: If you really hate that anise flavor, this isn’t for you. We bet you know someone who’d love it for a special little treat, though…mm-hmm. Thought so.)

As an added bonus, licorice has long been known for its stomach-soothing qualities. Much better to eat this than a candy bar as you pore over Schedule D (1040).

eat simply, eat to help your stomach acid
