This Liquorice was the first that Erling tasted back when he started the business and he knew that the particular taste it has was so reminiscent of of the taste he remembered from his own childhood of Yorkshire produced liquorice from Bassets and Wilkinson factories.. But of course even back in the 50s and 60s the liquorice extract they were using in to produce theses delightful sweets actually did come from Calabria in southern Italy. Calabrian liquorice is recognised for its high content of the compounds that give liquorice its unique sweet/bitter taste. And so its of little surprise really that this liquorice stick from an Italian liquorice manufacture tasted so good.. Taste is subjective as are our memories but the brain often links this events together.. most kids have a happy moment when they get something sweet and it carries on into adulthood too.. This liquorice brings it all back home..
