Ok so I know a lot of people don't like licorice so, if you fall into this category, you might as well move on to the next review. For those of you who, like me, hoard the black jelly-beans and pass on the rest, this is the treat for you. Panda Licorice is one of the best licorices I have had. The size and texture is perfect and the all-natural flavoring is delicious. The fact that the licorice has no added salt, colors, flavors, preservatives, is 99% fat free, and is low sodium are a nice bonuses too. The 4% calcium and iron makes it an even better indulgence. The big surprise came with how filling they are. I am a whole-box-is-a-serving kinda guy but, I found that Panda Licorice is filling enough that my snacking urge could be satisfied with less than 1/2 of a box (2.5 servings or so). Each one has plenty of flavor making eating them one-at-a-time enjoyable. The chewiness extends the life of each one so that the time-to-consume, an important but overlooking factor for any calorie-conscious snack choice, is extended. I found myself eating my 1/2 box for about 35 minutes. This staved off my hunger nicely and proved to me that this kind of "candy" is a good diet, pre- or post-workout, or just mid-afternoon snack..
