Are you going hiking in the Outback? Need sustenance? Concerned about Dingos? How about some beans? Everyone goes right to beans when they need energy, right? DON’T THEY??!?!
Sorry, my bad. I was thinking they were honoring French Outback Beans, which would have made no sense, but this absolutely does. Let’s eat some beans then.
it’s not super obvious what these are on first look, but they’re more or less candy coated “red licorice” bites. Take the holiest of holys- Good & Plenty. Now forget everything you know about them. But these, at the core, are supposed so be like them. Here’s the problem(s):
1. The candy coating is bland. Bland, and just a bit thicker than you’d want.
2. The “licorice” inside isn’t licorice of course, it’s a red chew. Think Red Vines, but then knock that down to the very lowest bottom of the red chew universe.
Still drawing a blank? Maybe my review of some of their other flavors will help.
This kind of “licorice” is what gives licorice a bad name. People tell me all the time “ooh, I hate licorice.” Know why? Because companies like Wiley Wallaby are churning out crap like this and passing it off as legitimate. What’s worse, chain stores and supermarkets have adopted this as a go-to brand. So this is what we see as available licorice, and that aint right.
These are terrible. Haaahrible. There’s nothing good about these, and you shouldn’t buy them. If you want a fruit flavored licorice style chew wrapped in coating, go Good & Fruity – they’re delicious! If you want the real black licorice in candy, of course go Good & Plenty. you can’t go wrong with the original gangsta’s of coated licorice, and in THIS situation….if it aint broke, by all means don’t try to fix it.
If you must defy me and buy these, click the link below. But seriously…don’t.
