Where to find black licorice strings?

Anyone know where I can find black licorice strings?

Someplace in Watertown, Cambridge, Natick, or Framingham would be great, but I'll drive further if I have to. Halloween's coming up, and I'd like to find some black licorice strings to decorate my baking (spider legs!). Last year I looked in a bunch of places (Target, CVS, Walgreens, Stop & Shop, Shaws), and couldn't find them.

  1. I bet you can get some at the Wayside Country Store in Marlborough. I think they call them licorice laces.

      1. If you feel like saving yourself some time and gas, you can order them from Amazon. They have several brands, including an organic one!
