$3.90

Product Description

Licorice, one of Sweden's best-loved candies, is made from licorice root, a plant that has been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of ailments, including indigestion and headaches. Today, the Swedes are obsessed with the candy version, which they often enjoy on lördagsgodis, or candy Saturdays. This salty licorice is extremely strong--some Swedes claim it to be their favorite flavor!

Word from the Expert

When I was growing up, children were only allowed to eat candy on Saturdays, and everyone had their favorite type. I like the sour and salty kinds, so I love this licorice! -Emma Bengtsson, curator of the Sweden Box
