WHAT I THOUGHT
I was able to try out the Assorted Sour Stars, RJ's Licorice Allsorts, and England Allsorts.

 For the Sour Stars, they were amazing! I love sour stuff, so the more sour it is, the better. The stars were really sour at first, but ended with a sweet finish. It has a perfect ratio between sour and sweet. I really got addicted to them, they were the first to go. If you like sour candy, you won't be disappointed by these!

The RJ's Allsorts is a New Zealand licorice. Having never had licorice from New Zealand, I didn't know what to expect. licorice sandwiches were also great! You could taste all the different flavors in each layer but if eaten at once, it had great taste. The sandwiches were big so you take one bite and your mouth is just filled with flavor.

I thought the English Allsorts were great for people whose tastes change everyday. There were pieces of just black licorice, sandwiches, little roll things, and it had Nonpariels (along with a wide variety of other licorice). Ya know- the little bit of what I think are round sprinkles? I didn't like the Nonpariels at first because it was a texture I wasn't used to. But the next day, I tried them again and ended up liking them. Once I got passed the texture, I thought they were delicious!
