Tasted very good, but made my stomach hurt every time. :/

I think this is the same licorice as Halva Lakumatto that is sold in Finland. At least it looks the same, tastes the same and the package said it was produced in Finland. With the current euro and dollar rates I think it might even be a little bit cheaper to buy this from iHerb than from the grocery store across the street. :O But yes, this is one of my favorite licorices! Great taste!
This has made my hair grow faster, but I'm still losing more than the usual amount of hair, so it didn't stop that. I have Crohn's disease (although I have now been able to get rid of the symptoms with low carb diet), so I'm always a bit worried about how my bowels will react to trying new nutritional supplements, but this product didn't cause any problems.
This is a wonderful way to get to taste many different teas! I liked all of the teas inside this box. There were two tea bags of each taste, so I used 9 myself and added the other 9 to a tea bag advent calendar I've made for my tea-loving mom.
Tastes like sugar

I would have loved to like this, because it tastes like sugar and I liked how it behaves almost like sugar when baking. BUT, I baked a pumpkin pie, ate one small piece of it and soon after got a horrible nausea that lasted about five hours + diarrhea and rumbling sounds in my gut for the rest of the day. :( I had to throw the rest of the pie away. I do also get nauseous if I eat erythritol, but this was SO much worse, so here's a little warning if you've also experienced problems with erythritol and want to try this. I guess I'll just stick to using stevia from now on.
I use this to make low carb ice cream. Works very well!
I like the strawberry taste in this tea, but you really need to be careful to steep the tea bag only for one or two minutes, because otherwise the strawberry taste starts to disappear.
Didn't taste very good.
I didn't like this
I bought this to sweeten low carb ice cream. I usually use NuNaturals stevia for that purpose, but I thought to try something different for a change and I chose this because one of my favorite food bloggers use this sweetener. But wow, this was quite a terrible experience! It didn't matter that it felt a bit cold in mouth. It tasted sweet, not bitter at all or anything, but the aftertaste was so confusing. Actually it's hard to describe it, because it wasn't really the taste but more like a feeling that came after the taste. It spread all over my mouth and made me feel nauseous. Even after several hours I still had a feeling of sickness. I tried to make ice cream with this twice, but I couldn't eat more than just a few spoonfuls, because at both times it made me feel so terrible. My ice cream machine couldn't get the ice cream made with this to thicken properly either. I think I will still try this for baking, perhaps this product is more suitable for that kind of sweetening. *Update*: This was good for baking! I didn't get that horrible feeling when I ate baked goods made with this.
