BEND, Ore., March 31 American Licorice Company, one of the nation's most respected licorice manufacturers, has introduced Natural Vines, a new line of premium, gourmet soft licorice created for the discerning licorice connoisseur. Natural Vines are made from all natural ingredients and contain no artificial flavors or preservatives. Available in two flavors, Black and Strawberry, Natural Vines will be available beginning in May, 2010 from select grocery stores, natural markets and gourmet food distributors, as well as online at www.candycabinet.com.
"Today, many consumers are more health conscious and are looking for products that don't contain ingredients created in a laboratory," said American Licorice spokesman Michael Kelly. "Natural Vines are just that--natural."
While most other premium licorice products contain artificial ingredients and high fructose corn syrup, Natural Vines are naturally sweetened with cane sugar and made with wholesome, all natural ingredients. They're low in fat, sodium, cholesterol-free, and contain no trans fat.
Natural Vines were created for the sophisticated licorice customer and are the result of American Licorice Company's nearly 100 years of candy making excellence. The unique cooking process produces a rich taste and a distinctive chewy texture that consumers prefer, and the convenient, bite-sized twists are fun to eat, allowing for easy portion control.
Made in the USA, Natural Vines are packaged in a distinctive stand-up resealable bag to maintain maximum freshness and flavor. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for an 8 oz. bag is $3.49. Retailers and distributors interested in sales opportunities should contact David Sechrist at 303-690-8755 or David.Sechrist@amerlic.com.
"American Licorice Company has been around since 1914, with five generations of experience in making renowned licorice," added Kelly. "We believe our passion, experience, and dedication to getting the product just right have made Natural Vines the world's best-tasting, highest quality, premium licorice made with all natural ingredients. We think licorice lovers everywhere will agree."
