Red Vines – Licorice – Nostalgia

In the past month or so I've gone through 3 bags of Twizzlers.
Even though corn syrup and wheat flour are the main 2 things I'm trying to eliminate from my diet (and the first 2 ingredients in Twizzlers), I've let the craving get the best of me. But for some reason, some sort of nostalgia, I've been craving Red Vines, thinking that the few times I had them as a kid I preferred the flavor.

So I bought a bag.
I guess I was wrong.

I'm not sure how to describe the taste, they're sort of "Twizzlers + yuck". And the texture is almost gritty.

A quick google search leads me to believe that my nostalgia for "Red Vines" was a bit misplaced. I think what I'm remembering are actually "Super Ropes", the bigger whip-like licorice rope that came individually wrapped in crinkly plastic.

But I'm going to end this madness here and simply satisfy my craving with the tried and tested Twizzlers.

    Twizzlers. Hmm. They need to make chocolate-covered Twizzlers. There are only 70 google results for that exact phrase. Does that indicate it's a good idea or bad idea?

    I have a bit of experience as a food combiner, so I'm totally the expert here.
    I'm going to say that it doesn't sound like a good idea. The taste might work ok (but I'm not too sure of that), but I don't think the textures would be very synergistic.
