Licorice Candy: An Unexpected Treat

Licorice root is one of the most popular herbs in the world and has been used for thousands of years. Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese, and Hindus have used licorice for its stomach-soothing medicinal properties, however, as time went on, licorice root began to show up in confections. In the 17th century, sailors from Holland started to share licorice candies throughout Europe. Today, licorice is a popular candy that is enjoyed throughout the world. Different countries even have their own unique varieties of licorice candy! In the UK, licorice allsorts are incredibly popular. In Holland, salty licorice or salmiakki is a favorite. In America, we enjoy both red and black varieties of licorice with fruit flavors such as cherry, grape, and strawberry.
