love these licorice allsorts - usually get the 170g bag - eating some right now but no little logs with black on outside and white in center - have been getting them for years - only 1 complaint - there are always a lot of one kind and not one of some - they should be more evenly packaged - very disappointing when you are wanting a certain one and there are none in the bag - will continue to buy them though - love them!
A big time treat at our house, quite good..Just slip the bag into a freezer bag and zip closed or they can get hard.
I bought a1kg box of maynards bassetts liquorice candy last month for Christmas i was very disappointed ,they tasted absolutely terrible i don't know if they may have been a bad batch or what but they didn't taste like the maynards liquorice candy i had before, i was very disappointed.
I bought 3 bags of this candy. At first I needed it of a still life painting.The candy is colorful,interesting shapes and textures. I took photos, and left the candies out while my guests where stealing the candies. It did not take long they were all gone.
I have found the product different. But the sad thing for myself was buying a bag, and finding my favorite wasn't in there. I usually only get 1 or 2 bead covered clear liqourice... It was the one thing I shared with my grandfather, and he would give the few that were in the bag ;) Now it pretty much walk by with disappointment... Sorry Maynards ;(
I purchased a 1 kg bag & was very dissapoointed after buying liqourice allsorts for 30 years! I like the blue & pink beaded round peices in the bag. They are my favorits. Much to my surprise I found zero of these in this bag. I feel I was cheated & I will never waste my money on another bag in the future. Don't change a well known product. Leave it the hell alone. There will be zero dollars spent on this product from me from this point on!
This was at one time one of my favorite candy. However, it seems that it has changed over the years. My favorite ones are the black logs with white inside them. I just bought a large bag for $10.00 and was very disappointed because there was only one in the whole bag. I thought they were called licorice allsorts for a reason. (Variety?) In fact the bag was 90 per cent pink ones. I also feel that most bags have too many plain licorice logs. I felt that I had wasted my money and may not be buying them again.
we have been purchasing this product for years,even when we were kids back in the uk,we are seniors now...excellent product...was called bassetts before...
I'm afraid I have to agree with the two sample reviews on this web site page. I have not bought this product for a while and upon trying this licorice I was most
disappointed in the quality and the fact that yes there was a lot of black licorice and very little of the others. Also the pieces did not appear to be as
big as they used to be either. Please tell me that I had a bad batch and that this product is not all ways like this.
WHAT a disappointment, I have been eating this product since I was a child many, many, many years ago. Anyways, my last box of Liquorice Allsorts 1 kg, HAD NEARLY ALL LIQUORICE LOGS. My favorite pieces are the coconut rounds. Guess how many pieces were in my package..2! Yes, 2 pieces. 1 piece in each bag. My daughter likes the pieces covered in tiny round sprinkles. Again guess how many pieces we found---6! 3 pink, 3 blue, 3 in each bag. The cheapness shows, I won't be buying this candy again.
I LOVE liquorice allsorts and mostly buy the mini allsorts. I was given a 170 gram bag of Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts for Christmas and was very disappointed to find 75% (17 pieces) of the 'allsorts' were the liquorice logs. I disliked the taste of the few pink and orange square varieties and there was no '5 layer black/white sort. I would never buy this brand again.
