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?
Let customers speak for us
These little beauties are hard to stop nibbling at....wonderful mix of black and strawberry liquorice plus much more!
Best taste yet
So very tasty, I only regret not ordering more.
So different so special
Really loved them.Would definitely buy again.Recommend them to everyone.
As you would expect the salmiak is the main thing you taste with these, but it has enough sweetness (and licourice) to balance it and a nice texture. Would recommend for someone who hasn’t tried salmiak licourice before and wants to try it in a way which doesn’t have other flavours mixed in.
More sour than I expected but very intense and unique flavour, violet comes through strongly. Really good, not super strong salmiak flavour, but is there.
I got these on a bit of a whim, and don’t always care for yuzu but these are amazing really well balanced mix of flavours.
One of my favourites of all time
I never knew orange grapefruit and liquorice went so well together but these are amazing
Bought as a present but did manage to try a few, loved the texture and flavour of orange ( lemon is lovely too)
I was first introduced to the marvels while visiting friends in the UK. They are magnificent! The quality of the chew is perfect: firm but not so gooey they pull out your teeth. These little morsels are so delicious and addicting, I pay insane shipping rates to get them sent to me in the US. Must. Have. Bears!
My new addiction. A lovely smooth, salty taste followed by a long lasting sweet.
I finished the bag in about a week
Gluten free liquorice with a strong hit of mint - delicious
