This is nice licorice, just be careful if you are gluten-free--it does have wheat in it!

Excellent black licorice
  • One of the best I have ever had. Reminds me of the old Switzers black licorice of the 1970’s and 80’s. None of that artificial anise like taste and not overly sweet.

It's so hard to find licorice without gelatin in it--even the candy store nearby only carries one or two types. Note to vegans, this has beeswax in it, but as I'm just a vegetarian, bees are cool.
Usually I have easier access to Swedish licorice, but I think this one's a new favorite!

If you like Scandinavian style black licorice, you will want to order this. I really love Danish licorice, and this Finnish licorice is just as delicious.

Really good! For anyone doubting that they like Black Licorice: just try some real black licorice from Finland. Some people still won't like it (which I will never be able to understand) but I have had people try real black licorice who said they hate the flavor and they end up enjoying it.

This is great licorice! I savor every second of flavor! My wife and I indulge ourselves with one piece after dinner each night. One the other hand, I had some sent to my brother and his wife, and they finished a bag in two evenings! It's truly that great! I have been known to sneak an piece too.

Oh yes, this will be a regular reorder for some time to come!

Tasted like memories of favorite licorice pipes from childhood.
August 17, 2020
Arrived in time frame expected. Packaging in perfect condition. Tastes like my expectation of licorice - full bodied, deep + not sweet. Texture soft, but not excessively sticky chewy. Exactly what I wanted. Made a second order to get more plus have enough to send to a friend who is also a major licorice fan. Will likely order more soon.

The Halva black licorice has become my new favorite. The flavor is smooth but still intense enough to let you know it is a real licorice. The Finns know licorice! The body is firm, but very chewable. Definitely a great choice if you like real black licorice.
