About Dutch Liquorice

The Netherlands is the largest producer of liquorice sweets in the European Union. The Dutch love liquorice, eating more than 32 thousand tons per year! 

Not sure which Dutch Liquorice to choose? 

We have a few suggestions for you.....

Salty/Salmiak recommendations:

  • For a gentle introduction to the joys of salmiak liquorice, traditional Dutch liquorice Schoolkrijt (Dutch Chalks) are a very popular choice. You get soft sweet Liquorice with a slight Salmiak hint wrapped in a crunchy Peppermint Shell. Alternatively, Limburgse Kat (cats) is sweet with a strong liquorice flavour, a very mild salmiak (Salt) taste and a firm texture.
  • After a primarily salty liquorice? Jujubes are a popular Dutch Black liquorice option. Salmiak Rocks are also extremely popular
  • After Dubbel Zoute? Our personal choice is Zoute Zeesterren (Salty Starfish) - they are soft and very salty

Sweet Dutch Liquorice recommendations:

  • Honingdrop are a classic Dutch liquorice Sweetened with 8% Honey. If you like Honey, it is well worth giving them a try.
  • Like Caramel? Caramel Sticks!
  • Limburgse Kat (Cats) are a firm favourite for those looking for a traditional Dutch Black liquorice sweet - nice and chewy, strong liquorice flavour and just a hint of salmiak salt.
