Liquorice & Aniseed Sweets
Here you can find allsorts of liquorice from the Liquorice cuttings and Pontefract Cakes to then Dutch Sweet and Salty Liquorice of the absolute finest quality. It is the 'proper' black liquorice flavoured with the extracts of the root of the liquorice plant. None of that pretend strawberry or apple liquorice. Did you know that liquorice has been around for donkeys years?! Alexander the Great even supplied his troops with rations of liquorice root while on the march. Liquorice comes in various forms so you can eat it any which way that you please. There's wheels, rock, allsorts, sticks, boiled, gummy and salty plus much more! A close relative of liquorice is Aniseed. You can find all of your aniseed goodies here too. From balls to spogs to twists and the ever popular Black Jacks! We've got it all!
Did you know... the shell is added in a process called hard panning, where a sugar syrup is added to the sweets and tumbled and dried and then coloured.

Liquorice Root looks like a stick or a twig and that is pretty much what it is. It is the source of all that taste of black liquorice. You just give it a chew and the liquorice comes through. To be honest, the taste of liquorice is not that strong but a lot of people seem to enjoy chewing on it anyway! People chew on it for its thirst-quenching qualities and as a mouth freshener.Some well known people throughout history who used liquorice root are Alexander the Great, who gave it to his troops on long marches when water was scarce, and Napoleon, who chewed it habitually and it eventually turned his teeth black!

This sweet is a golden oldie which has been around since 1925! Unfortunately, it's not in the paper packaging anymore but, luckily, it is still the exact same taste.
