Salt and more salt

Oh no! Far too salty. I like salty licorice but this was like eating a block of salt. Too much I'm afraid!

Saltiest Liquorice ever!

Sooo good, the saltiest I’ve ever tasted! I would prefer them slightly smaller.

Marco C.

Strong flavour outside and sweet inside. There is, anyway, some variability: some of the candies are hardly covered with NH4Cl, while others have plenty.


Perfect gift for my mum, she loves salty liquorice so saltier the better! She can't get enough of them! If you're up for a challenge on the world's saltiest this is definitely it! It Came well packaged and undamaged , definitely be ordering from here again!!

Sanna R.

I am a great lover of salty liquorice, but these are "blow your head off" level of salty! I ended up rinsing off the salty coating to make them somewhat edible.
