These little fellers have different flavour tasty sherbet crystals inside the liquorice tube. We're not sure why they are called flyers though. Maybe because they fly off the shelves These are the Giant Liquorice Flyers (14cm long and 1cm diameter)...they're not exactly big, imagine the small ones...!
They're a bit like a Sherbet Fountain, but in reverse!
Price is for 1 Liquorice Flyer

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!
Price is for 1 Liquorice Root (around 10g in weight each - sizes can vary)
Seriously good quality Belgian Arabic gum really hard liquorice coins made by Joris. A good strong liquorice taste with just a mild sweetness. This hard liquorice has to be sucked before it can be chewed which means that it lasts about a mega ten minutes!
If you're a liquorice connoisseur, then test drive these ones. They rattle around the tub and sound like marbles, thats how hard they are, though they're not brittle hard, more gummy hard, and the quality is outstanding.
