Licorice Candy

Licorice candy is a sugar candy which is flavored with the extract of the licorice plant’s roots. They are most commonly manufactured as chewy chains, strings or tubes. The main ingredients of licorice candy are licorice extract, sugar and a binder.

Traditional licorice candy is black, but there are many different varieties of colorings and flavorings which are used to manufacture a large assortment of licorice candy. Often selected flavors include strawberry, cherry and chocolate.
