Long Description:
"Red Vines is a brand of candy manufactured in Union City, California by the American Licorice Company. Red Vines Original Red twists, sometimes known as 'red licorice', resemble American black licorice except that they are red and do not have flavor extracted from the roots of the liquorice plant. The original Red Vines were raspberry flavored but in 1952, with a slight formula change, the Red Vines Original Red Twist flavor was introduced. Red Vines red twists appear very similar to Twizzlers candy, but are rounder, chewier and slightly lighter in color. The taste is also sweeter and somewhat richer than that of a Twizzler.

Red Vines makes a similarly flavored product called Super Ropes, which is a red 34 inch solid rope, popular with children and often sold at fairs and specialty candy shops. Red Vines also offers black licorice twists, sugar free twists, as well as other fruit flavored twists. Red Vines originally became popular in the Western United States, although today it can be found nationwide. The American Licorice Company claims that Red Vines candy is "the number one non-chocolate confection in the West."" (visit link)
