I too was a seeker after a substitute for what I considered the gold standard in toffee treats, Callard and Bowsers... the licorice toffee in particular. So I did a search and narrowed it down to Oatfields and Walkers. The Oatfields is half the price and it arrived quickly. While it came close to my memory it was much softer and was missing something..... that buttery flavor just wasn't there. Kind of like the difference between Jello instant pudding and regular pudding made the slow way with whole milk. While it was certainly in the "good" category it didn't come close enough for me to the quality of the Callard & Bowsers. I didn't crave another one the way I did the C&B toffee.
Two weeks passed before the Walker Nonsuch Licorice arrived. I guess it comes from England which also explains the higher price (shipping inclusive in the price). But was it ever worth the wait! It tastes and feels pretty much identical to Callard & Bowsers licorice toffee!!! I immediately felt remorseful that I had only ordered a single bag because that old craving had returned and I knew this bag was not going to last long. I ate three immediately and then had to force myself to stop.. I'm thrilled! So I'm stopping by to share this revelation on my way to ordering more....much more.... of this delicious toffee. Walkers Nonsuch Licorice Toffee is my new gold standard in licorice toffees. So in this licorice battle between Ireland and England I think the victory goes clearly to the latter.

** Please correct me if I'm wrong but if you plan to order more than one bag I believe it's cheaper to order from a seller that does not include the shipping in the price because the shipping gets added to each bag whereas if you order with the shipping shown separately it will give the actual cost of shipping for the weight of your order.

Tastes nearly identical to the former Callard & Bowser licorice toffee. Unlike what one reviewer said it is not hard and needs to be nuked. They must have had stale candy or kept it in a cold place. This is typical toffee in texture, soft and chewy. It is delicious!! Everyone I share it with LOVES it! I can't stop eating it.

If you're a lover of black liquorice (licorice) like I am, you will go absolutely bananas over these toffees! For the longest time, I couldn't find them anywhere. I am so excited that I can find them on Amazon now! (The UPS driver and I are on a first-name basis.)

Enjoy! :-)

I recently tried the Walkers and was impressed with them. Oatfield was a little less expensive and arrived quicker. I think the texture of Oatfield is spot on, as was the Walkers. There was, however, an annoying taste I couldn't put my finger on but it ruined my enjoyment of them. I looked at the ingredients on the package, and it is cloves. I have a low tolerance for clove flavor.

I too revere the memory of Collard and Bowser. (So many people mention C and B in these comments you would think there would a quite a market for them.) In any case, I probably won't buy these again.

taste almost like the licorice wrapped in stripe paper I used to eat when I was a kid. This this thicker and the quality is very good. I would have liked the same shape and the stripped paper. This is very good, very pricy but good.

I like many here was in search of a replacement for the ever so wonderful and no longer available Callard & Bowser licorice toffees. I first tried the Goetze's Licorice Caramel Creams, and now I've tried the Oatfields. The Goetze's are not even in the same class. Interesting and tasty, but not a toffee. That was my mistake.

On to the Oatfields....these are very reminiscent of the old C&B toffee. Very tasty but as another customer said, something seemed missing. The creamy/buttery flavor isn't there. Also, the Oatfields are much harder. If you have dental work concerns, but careful to not chew them to quickly or vigorously. Anyway, definitely a solid 4 of 5. Now I'm on to the Walkers taste test next as I wait for them to arrive from England.

Great tasting product. This is not a typical licorice but a licorice toffee with a chewy texture after it starts melting in your mouth. They have a delightful flavor all unto itself and are similar to the old Callard and Bowseer Licorice toffees from the 70's but not the same taste or consistency. All and all will be a repeat purchase

For you out there who remember Callard & Bowser's iconic licorice toffee, I'll try to make this as accurate as I can, keeping in mind that a person's taste is individual, and it changes over the years: The first thing I noticed was the aroma when I opened the bag. I immediately realized that there is a difference in how it smells (who knew that candy has a "nose", like wine or single malt scotch : )). It was sharp, noticeably sharper than my memory of C & B's intoxicating aroma; there is a much stronger anise seed smell. The taste confirms this, noticeable anise taste. The toffee taste is also stronger, close to a slightly scorched butter taste. This isn't bad in itself; in fact I like it, but it isn't that magically smooth toffee taste that C&B had. So: the upshot is, if you're looking for something as close as possible to C&B, then this will likely be farther away than you hoped for. But it isn't "bad" candy, I'll finish the bag, but I'll also keep looking. Oatfields needs to dial down the anise seed, perhaps do this to the "licorice extract" ingredient as well, and maybe play with the toffee a bit.
