Liquorice Allsorts


    In 1899, Charlie Thompson, a Bassett's sales representative, supposedly tripped over and dropped a tray of samples he was showing a client in Leicester, mixing up the various sweets. The client was intrigued by the new creation and the rest is history....

    Allsorts are produced by many companies around the world, but are most popular in Europe, especially outside England! They are known as Engelse drop, Engelsk konfekt, Lakridskonfekt, Englantilainen lakritsiand more.

    They have been re-interpreted by many (Including the likes of Haribo) but are typically made of liquorice, sugar, coconut, aniseed jelly, fruit flavourings. 

    Did you know that the original contained "chips, rocks, buttons, nuggets, plugs and twists" but that no record exists of what these were?
