This was in the organic section of my local Yoke’s grocery store. In the interest of research I grabbed a bag, and didn’t have any expectations.
It’s fantastic. These little, one-inch squares are made of layered strands of licorice. They do look like tire treads, thus the name. Funny thing, they are made in Finland. I think this is a first for the blog!
The flavor is a mix of berries. A good, firm texture and slightly sticky surface creates a good chew. The bag is pricey, but the quality is so much higher than the regular candy aisle fare. I think you are getting your money’s worth here. The only draw back is how fast you can go through a bag, which can leave you with a stomach ache. So, share this with your friends and you won’t hate yourself in the morning.
