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...

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.
