I promise you....Kenny's are a nicer texture...not quite as tough.....which licorice purists might not like, but the taste is far and away better than both. I suppose personal "taste" will factor into it for everybody and vary from person to person, but reading what you guys are writing about particular candies...makes me think you guys would probably dig them too. Thing is...I don't know where to buy them anymore myself since the Sav-A-Lot chain stopped carrying them for twizzlers. Sucks!!! Haven't tried the filled twizzlers.....I don't look down candy aisles like I used to for new stuff....I get what I like and keep movin' now! I guess I missed those. And yes.....long live Duds!!! Banish Whoppers to the Nether Regions of Outworld!......LOL!
