From Dates to Diapers & Beyond celebrated the concept of National Licorice Day, April 12:

I know, I know … there is a "national day" for just about everything. BUT!

We've played games with Red Vines, used them as party favors, and always have some on hand. Just tonight we made some yummy ice cream floats with Cherry 7UP and berry sherbet, and we used Red Vines as straws!

Fun facts:

• American Licorice Co. has been producing in the San Francisco Bay Area for 33 years.
