How I love a Twizzler!
It’s a perfect little snack.
You take a bite and yank it
And it yanks a little back.

The strawberry’s my favorite
For it’s chewy and it’s sweet.
It satisfies my sugar fix
And makes a meal complete.

I’m sometimes craving chocolate
But more often what I want
Is a treat that you will never find
In any restaurant:

It’s a twisted, twirly Twizzler!
And as long as it’s not stale,
It will generate a smile
Every time and without fail!

    Snack em' and pack em' and take em' on a hike. If twisted twirly twizzler's are really what you like. I like cheesy doodle bops and melba toast and such. But once I open up that bag, it seems there's not that much.

    I just had to check out one with a candy name! I like twizzlers but now that my foreign students are telling me it tastes like plastic to them, I can kind of see what they mean. anyway, I'm a BLACK licorice girl!! I love any kind of black licorice!!

    have you been making batches of Twizzlers with a little 'zing' in them? sounds like one I want to try! P.S. I love twizzlers too! U could write a whole book about your favorite candies. My list goes on and on-How about MaryJane's-you pull on them and they pull out your teeth!
