What a horrid, horrid title for this review. So obvious, so annoying, so delightfully anger inducing. Yet I did it because I got Tikkeld.
First, congrats on the packaging, Venco. Despite being slightly visually confusing, I dig it. I love the color.
From the bag, we can see the shape of these things, and we know that terms “drop mint” and “hard” have been bandied about.
Still sort of a mystery.
Still though, even after looking at this, one might think they’re similar to a mint M&M. But that person would be wrong.
These fall squarely in the Good & Plenty lineage. Candy coated licorice. For us Gurus, this is near and dear to our hearts-we love this crap. But for many of you, “you don’t like black licorice”. The thing is, you do. You just don’t like mediocre licorice.
Sallos makes a wonderful version of this with their “Black & White” candies. Haribo also has a very good one. Tikkels though, is just a bit different. Because Tikkels, in addition to being slightly salty candy coated licorice, also have a slight-very minor- menthol flavor.
It’s wonderful. Very refreshing, different, and scrumptious. I’d absolutely buy these-if I could. And I can! I think.
We have a very pricey amazon link below. The bag looks slightly different but I believe it’s the same candy. If you’re a licorice fan*
*PROGRAM NOTE: no need to say “I don’t like black licorice” if you’re a hater. There is no other kind of licorice. Just say you don’t like licorice.
…Then these might be worth the price. Or, just keep your eyes open online for a better deal, because these certainly are worth tracking down.
did this review Tikkel your fancy?
