TRY&CRY – Salty licorice variety pack
One the pack contains 15 types from 5 different countries in one single 13.5oz (380g) bag. In the bag you will find licorice from Finland, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland. Yes, thats right... Iceland! :) Great news isn´t?
Salty and delicious!
As a huge salty liquirice fan I must say I really enjoyed this. Insanely good. Even as a Swede which is almost at the centerpoint for most salty liquirice I got to try flavours which I didn't even know existed; and they tasted great. (Especially the Icelandic ones, might have to travel there some day now just to buy some Djöflar ;)) I rarely order stuff online but if you enjoy salty liquirice as much as I do I strongly recommend you try this.
The licorice, the delivery, the packaging and the communication were fantastic! I've received nothing but wonderful service and delicious candy from this company which is why I will continue to purchase from Mean Black Fox.
I enjoyed this package because it came with a large variety so I could find out my favorites, and order them individually. I have been trying to get the salteskaller here in America for some time, but the ones I randomly ordered off of the internet never what I was after. This pack had the correct skulls, and the twins were a forgotten favorite form my time in Norway. The licorice was fresh and tasty, the shipping took some time, coming form Germany and all but worth the wait.
I just wanted to try the Try and Cry pack after seeing a couple of YouTube reviews. I bought two packs and brought one to work for my co-workers to taste. It's a fun way to break the ice.
The salt is almost overpowering, but the sweetness still sneaks through somehow.
checked out kevin letterman's youtube review of the try n cry pack, and after waiting a bit for them to become available again, i finally got some! talk about salty, the salmiaak bitar and lakkris djoflagr (sp?) were intense, but delicious. peberlinser tasted most like a black jelly bean, like a spicy gourmet Brachs. love love love the salta twins and toffee salta, which had a great texture. loved the dubblezout for an intense ammonia chloride experience. the whole pack came with a healthy sampling of the Djungelvral ones, which sort of imparted a lot of good salt onto everything else as well.
VERY REASONABLE PRICE AND SHIPPING
GREAT CONVERSATION STARTER
only things i would ask: label on the back saying whats what, and fix the links on the variety pack website! some lead to 404. i gotta get more, man! whats the big flat one that had the consistency of a taffy? and the hard candy one was soooo good ...
kudos to alex for making this great product and to kevin letterman on youtube for the introduction!
The licorice is great! My favorites are the toffee salta and peberlinser. I think that the lakkris djoflar is the most punishingly salty candy I've tried, and recommend slicing thin pieces off. Delivery was fast, candies arrived intact, excellent flavor.
I never tried salty licorice before, after i saw a video about the salty licorice variety pack on cutlerylover i thought about giving it a try.
So i ordered the variety pack and was amazed.
Big thumbs up for meanblackfox :)
Great salty and sweet licorice. Better than I expected, though not for the faint of heart
Great communication regarding a delay in shipping, which was not a problem but great to know what was going on. Delicious and really nice assortment of licorice. Overall, a great experience. Thanks!
The service provided was excellent. Had some questions after the shipment and Alex was on hand as fast as can be expectes, even stretching the extra mile to proactively find solutions. The concept in itself is also great. The only reason I am not giving full score is the lack of the possibility of making your own variety pack, based on your favorites. I am certain that this will change though, when the volume justifies it.
Great licorice and great service! Thank you! This candy is weirdly addictive. First you hate it, then you like it, then you love it!!
A wonderful experience with tasty licorice in a Variety salty goodness
This was by far the best licorice I have ever had in my life! It's much better than anything in the U.S. The salt adds so much to the lovely licorice flavor. It was a match made in heaven. Not to mention the outstanding service I received from this company! Definitely worth 5/5 stars, would buy again.
Yes, I did tear up after the first bite, but what a delicious experience! The assorted tastes were fun to try out. The aftertaste of the black licorice was delightful. But make no mistake about it, this is not for the weak! The flavors are definitely salty and bitter! I shared with some people who couldn't get past the initial "bite" of the flavor and spit it out. Others of us asked for more. One woman I work with, who is originally from Hungary said, "Oh, REAL licorice!" after the first bite. She took six more pieces. I would recommend it if you love salty licorice. I thought it was a good price for the amount you get, and the quality of it.
As a Swede living in America, this is probably the only thing that I miss from home. This is a great mix of candy and it was very fresh. Well packaged; my only wish would be for the bag to be bigger! So good!!
This is great to try different styles and flavor from around Europe! There are a few that have grown on me Saltskallar, Salta Twins and Peberlenser just to name a few! A few are only for the bravest of heart (icelandic ones, and salmiak matte for example) but was definitely worth the buy!
The try and cry package was nice for sampling a wide selection of the licorice from MBF, however I do have some criticism as well. The variety of candy is amazing, my only complaint related to the package is the amount of each particular licorice. Of the strongest, and in my opinion, the foulest varieties, you get a ton... Of the few delicious types, i received only one or two pieces... This was fairly disappointing, as I had many examples of "scary and unappealing" to share with others, but none of the good types that I'd likely recommend to another potential customer. I'm certain all of these candies appeal to someone out there, but to newbies and those who cannot handle the ammonia blast of the stronger types, it was disappointing to not find more of the tasty and mild examples in the mix. Overall my buying experience was very positive.
Wanted to taste the Try & Cry salty blend after seeing some videos on YouTube. The licorice is excellent and good quality. Great customer service from Alex. If you want some delicious tasty licorice I highly recommend meanblackfox.com.
As a licorice expert from the northern Scandinavia, I liked 99% of the bag. But not the Icelandic stuff, that was just too far off the scale.
What a wonderful company and staff you have.I received nothing but kindness and great customer service.The product itself is awesome.My father and I are trying the challenge we saw on YouTube.I am also telling all my friends about your company and hope they bring you much business..I wish you much success and happiness in all of your future endeavors..Richard from Texas...
Salt licorice at its best, I've been looking for good salt licorice for months and I've found it. Some are mildly salty and others are so salty it burns. LOVE IT
I received my order promptly from MBF. The package arrived without defect. This was one of the updated packs of Try & Cry with the 15 varieties, and the contents were as advertised. Not being a fan of licorice to begin with, I didn't have high hopes for thoroughly enjoying the consumption of this product. However I can say that the licorice was of excellent quality, the variety was great, and the product met my high expectations. The fact that I did not actually like consuming the product had no influence on my overall enjoyment of the product.. MBF has done an excellent job with sample pack, and I'd recommend it to anyone even remotely interested in salty licorice!
Your sample pack lacked the salt patiller from denmark (piratos) others are very gpod
Gave my mother licorice for christmas. It arrived fast and with the specified contents. She's happy with the taste. Can't say much more.
I really, really hated licorice. Since I was a kid. But a few months ago I became aware of MBF and gave this "black stuff" a new opportunity. I ordered a package and then another...and now I have become a licorice fan. Especially the salty licorice did it to me. Everyone who wants to try salty licorice is well served with the TRY & CRY Pack. The iceland licorice…like a kick in the face! Nice shop. Great service. Very fast shipping as well! I will order again. Definitely.
A very good sampler of delicious treats. Highly recommended if you already know you like salty licorice, but probably not a good choice if you're trying it for the first time.
Had some issues shipping to the U.S. West coast, but USPS figured it out eventually, this time, after kicking it around all over the area. Expect 1 week to reach the U.S. customs (e.g., ISC New York), and at least one more to reach you.
Had issues with my shipment that made it all the way to Los Angeles before the shipping company returned it undeliverable. MBF has been really great in communicating with me and help to sort it out.
On top of that the licorice is super tasty!
Loved the licorice! Have to order more.
Awesome selection on salty licorice. Especially the Icelandic ones. Never tried something like this before. Thanks!
Easy checkout (Bitcoin), speedy shipping, and the goodies are just as advertised. Some of the pieces have a strong licorice taste but that's of course the point!
This licorice is delicious. Super happy I went with the combo pack because there were a couple that I didn't like. That said, the rest of it was amazing. The mint/licorice combo is amazing. And all purchased with BITCOIN!
There are a lot of different types here - I got some salted, some sweet, candy-filled, etc. All of them are delicious, and it shipped very quickly. I'm definitely glad I went for the assortment instead of picking a single type. It might be obvious, but if you aren't sure about what size to get: 850g is a lot of licorice!
Great choice to sample all of the different types available. Great service, shipping was quick. Will definitely order again.
If you haven't had various types of European licorice before, I definitely recommend a variety pack over trying to pick a single type from descriptions.
Great product, great service.
That is some series licorice out there. Mix had about 20 different licorice candy types. Fun.
I never liked black licorice until I tried licorice from Mean Black Fox. I ordered a sampler, because with so many offerings it is the easiest way to find out what you lick. I will say that the salted licorice is an acquired taste. I did after trying a few even enjoy that. American black licorice is awful - European licorice is superior and tasty. Now I understand why my grandmother always had her cousins send her black licorice from Ireland. Thanks Mean Black Fox for making me a convert. I will definitely be ordering again when my stash is gone.
The owner of Mean Black Fox, Alex, sent me a free replacement shipment of this assortment after some confusion on my first order. I appreciated the great customer service he provided, and am enjoying all the types of licorice. Some are really salty (from the Ammonium Chloride found in salty European licorice), and some are interesting twists on sweet flavors that most Americans wouldn't have had either. All in all- if you're not sure what to buy, and are a fan of black licorice, give this assortment a try and you'll be glad you did. It's a good way to learn the products on this website. Plus dealing with MeanBlackFox has been a good experience. Thanks Alex !!
Got my licorice today and was really happy with the selection of salty licorice. Not to say I LOVE every thing, but it's different than my usual fair.
when inquired about the status of my order, mbf.com sent a tracking link that shows my package is still sitting on a shipping dock in frankfurt. needless to say, i won't be a repeat customer.
I consider myself a liquorice connoisseur (Black, of course. Red isn't licorice) and was happy to get a package in the mail that I'd forgotten about ordering. The package was nicely sealed, and arrived undamaged. I opened up this assortment, and was excited to see so many varieties, approximately 25 different kinds. Then I came back to this website to see what I had samples I have of which product. Aside from being able to identify "Penguins Of Revulsion" Danish Liquorice Salt Pastilles, I have no clue what the other varieties are. They are simply not like anything shown in any of the categories sold on this site. So, I like the assortment, and I realize "Photo may vary from actual product", but I thought I'd at least be able to re-order the varieties I wanted. Kind of misleading that it isn't really a sample of what is shown on this site, but still good value.
