I've had licorice root before and this isn't it.

To me, they are like licorice flavored twigs...so you get the fibrous bits in your mouth from time to time.

The taste is what i would describe as like a tea taste that has a sweetness to it.

These licorice stix live up to the description. its a big bag of them and they are all neatly cut. The taste is what i would describe as like a tea taste that has a sweetness to it. I sucked on them to ease my smoking...but also i would use them when i woke up to get my system started. My lil bro , husband, and others kinda got hooked on these. After a while i started to crave the taste, as it has a very natural and plant taste. Its refreshing to taste what natural sweetness is like. i recommend NOT chewing them...but more putting them on the side of your mouth and letting the flavor seep out of it. I will buy again : )

My husband grew up in France where they had REAL licorice sticks like these as treats/candy. He has been wanting some for years...but we haven't been able to find them in any of the international stores in our area. As a last chance effort, we tried amazon and sure enough, we found this product. When they finally arrived and my husband tried them, he said THEY WERE PERFECT! The kids and I tried them, and they were not our favorites. HOWEVER, my kids are slowly getting used to them not being "candy" sticks, and they are growing to love them just like their Daddy did years ago. To me, they are like licorice flavored twigs...so you get the fibrous bits in your mouth from time to time. That's the way it is supposed to be...but it does take a bit of getting used to. :)

These are an aquiered taste. Please don't expect "sweetness" like sugar because thats not what they are like. More of a refreshing bitter taste. They do wonders for keeping the mouth clean when I fray the ends by biting them then gently brush my teeth with them. They are great to chew/suck on after eating or almost anytime of the day.

I do smoke cigars occasionally and am not looking to quit, but these make me smoke less and that saves me money. My main complaint about these is that the larger diameter roots are extremely earthy and bitter, and the pound I recieved is about 30% filled with these large roots. I make licorice tea with these big ones and can add my own stevia or honey so its not that bad.

All in all these things pretty good they do help out digestion, bad breath, oral hygiene and they also kill time when i would otherwise be chewing gum or smoking a cigar.

I got them because I like them since I was a kid. Ordered online since I can't go to the pharmacies anymore, unfortunately they are not as sweet as the one I usually got in Europe. That's why only 3 stars

I'm very averse to bitterness, and these sticks are extremely bitter with an unpleasant taste. I was hoping to alleviate a nervous need to chew, but the texture is too soft.

I have been using licorice root on and off for over 40 years. It used to be difficult to find, but thanks to the internet it's easy. I found the quantity as listed and the product exactly like the licorice root I always used. They are neatly cut, consistent length and reasonably priced. If you have never tried licorice root, it does not taste like the black licorice you buy in a bag, or Sen-Sen's. It's a rather subtle flavor. It takes a short time to draw it out of the stick, but it's worth it.
Licorice root really does help with quitting smoking. I'm going on three months now of not smoking and I found it much more helpful than electronic cigarettes, of which I had tried several. I bought the root for other reasons, but it dovetailed into my quit smoking schedule beautifully.
I'll buy from this company again, because I am very happy with the product received.
