Milk Chocolate Coated Icelandic Liquorice
Liquorice lovers rejoice: you can now indulge in soft liquorice smothered in lush layers of creamy milk chocolate, perfectly balancing the aniseed flavour of liquorice. Our liquorice comes the whole way from Iceland, a country obsessed with all things liquorice. Love it or hate it? Apparently according to research the love or hate of liquorice is something we are born with!
Liquorice is the most popular sweet in Iceland thanks to its suitability to its harsh weather when even hardy crops struggle. With volcanic soil, sulphuric waters and treacherously long winters, grain was historically hard to grow, flowers and bees couldn’t flourish. Liquorice does not need to flower to thrive as the edible portion is the root and contains a compound 30–50 times sweeter than sucrose. So Icelanders turned to liquorice for their sugar fix as early as the first settled on the island.
