When I was in elementary school, we went to Museum Village in Monroe, NY where I purchased a natural licorice root out of curiosity. It was instant love. Since then, I've searched for them but to no avail, until the advent of the internet. Your product arrived sooner than I expected, was nicely packaged, and I've been enjoying my wonderful licorice "stick" ever since (to the intense confusion of everyone who sees me sucking on it). Fantastic product - thanks so much for returning a lost piece of my childhood!
