Passion for Licorice


What is Licorice?

The licorice plant is a perennial herb and a member of the pea family. Native to southern Europe, Asia, and the Mediterranean, it is extensively cultivated in Russia, Spain, Iran, and India. The plant is prized for its roots, which contain Glycyrrhizic acid. This acid, which is extracted from the roots, is fifty times sweeter than sugar. Licorice extract is used as a flavoring in food, tobacco, alcohol, cosmetics, and, of course, in licorice candy. Learn more…

Licorice Facts

The Unique Properties of (Real) Licorice Not All Licorice Is Licorice , when you buy licorice candy in your local supermarket or candy store, what exactly are you buying? If you live in the United States, the chances are it isn’t licorice. So-called “licorice”
candy is flavored with anise (the same herb that gives Pernod its distinctive flavor) or synthetic substitutes. Sugar then becomes a major ingredient, since anise lacks the sweetness of real licorice. Learn more…

A History of Licorice

Licorice is not a recent discovery. The ancient Egyptians used it as a natural remedy and copious supplies were found in King Tut’s tomb. Egyptian hieroglyphics record the use of licorice as a popular beverage among the men of the time. Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar are on record as endorsing the benefits of eating licorice. Modern licorice candy dates from 17th century Holland. Learn more…

What other say about us!

“I picked up your licorice because 1) it was licorice 2) it was organic and 3) it was sugar-free. I brought it home and went to your website and found out that it is naturally sweet and would help coughs. I was right in the middle of this horrible coughing, whatever, that has been going around and had a very bad cough. I began suckling these licorices and within a day, my cough was much better. My husband used them too, and they stopped his cough. For both of us, once we started using them, the congestion in our chests began to break up and it was really the turning point for us getting well. So thank you for such an excellent product! Not only as a taste treat, but as a healing remedy as well.”

“This licorice is great. I love the taste of the wheels, but the most impressive things are the pellets (or “tic tacs”). I had acid reflux one night (actually it was 2:00 o’clock a.m.) and this was the hundredth time I woke up in the middle of the night with it. (You know the kind that wakes you up as it’s (the bile) coming up into your mouth. I took two (yes, that’s right: two) pellets and swallowed them with a little water. I went back to sleep and slept like a baby the rest of the night. And I was comfortable for the first time in a long time. I’m sold.”
