4 lb Jar Salty Black Licorice
If there’s anything that can stake a claim to being a pioneer in the sweet-meets-salty landscape, it’s licorice. The Scandinavians are the true masters of the dark art of licorice, and it was there we got hooked on the stuff. Even in the world of sweets, some things are an acquired taste. And while the tart, bracing licorice of Northern Europe was our inspiration, we wanted something a little more approachable. We landed on a recipe that honors the licorice we loved, but allows for a slightly less abrasive experience.
The result is a chewy confection with notes of caramel, molasses and anise, balanced with delicate flakes of our Jacobsen sea salt. We use only the best natural ingredients, and deliver a chew that’s a bit more viscous than other varieties, so you have a little time to let it unfold on the palate. Dark, intriguing and delicious, we think it’s a taste worth acquiring.
