I've not seen a better price than this, so i bought a box and give the company 4 stars for the price. But I give 1* to Bassett/Kraft for it appears they've shaved a good bit off the lenghth of the stick and therefore made what should be a hundred sticks in reality a good few less. I've bought Bassetts hard, liquorice sticks since the 60's and I know how long they should be by sight, if not by measurement, and these sticks look to be well short. Shame on Kraft, but then what can you expect from a company that welshed on the deal to keep Cadbury's jobs in the UK. No morals.

I will savour every last one of these shortened, hard sticks, because they'll be the last I buy. The sweet world has gone bitter, the sweet world has gone corporate.

I ordered the 100 piece box but was sent a smaller 75 piece box. I queried this with the supplier by email and a refund for the difference was issued but I didn't receive any reply to my email other then the notification of the refund. A quick email with an apology and we'll be issuing a refund for the difference would have been better customer service. As for the product Liquorice Sticks were just as yummy as I remembered them.

I think this deal is the best value available on Amazon for the hard liquorice sticks. They are perfectly hard and chewy. The whole family are enjoying them.

I have to disagree with the other review that says these aren't hard. I've had soft licorice and this certainly ain't soft :-) Great value product, great taste and fast delivery.

I have been buying this product for some time with no complaints. I do not know if Bassetts have changed their recipe but what I purchased is a diffarent colour and does not have the taste of the previous liquorice that I have purchased. Not impressed. Do not change what is not broken.

I'm so disappointed - I've bought this a few times before and it was like stepping back in time to my youth. Not this time, these sticks weren't hard and tasted disgusting. These used to be my guilty pleasure, but not this time - its more like a punishment. I am seriously thinking of throwing them in the bin. I won't be buying any more in case its a change of ingredient, for goodness sake - don't mess with a winning formula!!

I am a fan of licorice and these hard licorice sticks takes me back to early childhood. I love these as they are long licorice sticks and they are not to sweet and not salty. I think good value for money when buy the box compared to some retailers who charge quite high for one stick in some shops who sell pick n mix. I have managed to see cheaper only by about £1 in wholesales so to be fair amazon have a good deal here.
they are true to size the sticks and hard candy not soft licorice but this I love as it lasts longer I do sometimes chop in half and I feel satisifed after 1 or 2 as not mega sweet you dont feel the need to eat one after the other..

good buy and if your a licorice lover or know of someone who is then treat yourself to this.

Got this as a birthday gift for my girlfriend who loves liquorice, she was over the moon.
Only downside are less kisses from the girlfriend, I don't like liquorice.
It arrived nice and quick in perfect condition, the right gift for liquorice lovers.

This is a large box of liquorice sticks and the boxed weight is 1500g. It is really great value for money too. I sneaked one out of the box to test it and it is definitely hard liquorice in that is is much firmer than supermarket stuff of pontefract cakes. Another reviewer said it is not hard liquorice because it bends- well it does bend and I would expect it to, but it definitely gave my jaws a workout chewing it. It also helps keep it firm if it is stored in a cool place. I bought my husband some Italian hard liquorice last Christmas which was nice but so expensive, this is much better value and should last for ages!

bought a box 2 months ago and they were great. Have now bought another box today and it looks the same but tastes vile and bitter. Shame as i would like to buy another box but not if they taste like this. Had to return item.
