Pure, natural liquorice

This liquorice is made from the liquorice plant using a decades old method and is 100% natural.
With no added sugars, flavours or preservatives, it is the only sweet I consume these days.
Although, to say sweet may be a bit misleading. It has a strong flavour which is an acquired taste and in fact took me two attempts before I acclimatised.
Haven't looked back since.
As for the service, from online support to the final prompt delivery, the service I received was professional, amicable, and of a high standard.
Overall, a very pleasing and refreshing experience.

Small size, powerful taste

How there is so much flavour in such little pieces is a mystery to me. This intense flavour remains in my mouth for a long time after I finish a piece – great for a lover of this type of liquorice but a problem if not a fan! If you share them with others (😱) then they may appreciate knowing that taste can linger and may cause a black tongue for a short time (or until you can get to a toothbrush!). Also, after being guilty of this myself, I should perhaps mention that i
f you share them with someone who has previously only had the soft, sweet liquorice you might find in a mixed bag with all sorts of those fondant-wrapped, soft, sweet type, they may appreciate trying a tiny, broken-off chip at first.

One last hint to make them last for as long as possible: Allowing someone to try a little of this most luxuriously intense liquorice may quickly lead to ‘Could I perhaps try just a little more to be certain?’. Then you may suddenly find yourself with none left. So I suggest that immediately after giving someone a little to try, make an excuse to leave and promise to send them a link so they can buy some from here! 😉
