Twizzlers/redvines

Postby TheLostSwede » 09 Sep 2007, 21:06

Anyone know if it's possible to get hold of twizzlers or redvines or something similar in Taipei or Taoyuan?
For some reason my GF really wants some...

Yeah, but you said 6 years ago, not 6 days or 6 weeks ago...
We'll have a look there, thanks

Yeah, they tend to carry the same selection from decade to decade. :p Just be sure to check the dates on perishables.

Wellman's is on Zhongshan N. Rd., Section 6, very close to the Taipei American School. I always get Twizzlers there for my Hong Kong friend.
