Let's hear it for red licorice

I was all set to spend a bundle ordering dye free candy online for Valentines Day. I happened to go to Target today and actually found a dye free red licorice on sale, 2 for $4.00. It tastes really good, it's naturally flavored and colored and does not have HFCS either. Its called Australia's Darrell Lea Soft Eating Strawberry Liquorice. I'm hoping we can use the power of our dollars to keep stores stocking more natural products. Please share if you have found other good items.

I'm not sure if it's valentine-esque; but Florida's Natural Fruit nuggets are dye-free :-) They're kind of like fruit gummy candy...the kind that some parents consider "healthy" snacks. (er, okay, I'll admit to sometimes being that mom...)

Trader Joes has naturally colored candy coated sunflower seeds; and scottie dog shaped licorice! (We're avoiding more than just dye; or I might have more...)
