Licorice has been around for an extremely long
time. In fact, great quantities were found
with the fabulous treasures of King
Tut. In addition, the Chinese maintained that
eating the licorice root would give
them strength and endurance, dating back as far as 5000 years.
Finnska licorice uses authentic licorice root extract to get its wonderful licorice flavor and soft texture. The ingredients are cooked for several hours, and the greenish-colored licorice is then pressed, heated, and cooled several times before it is cut and packaged. This heating and cooling process causes the licorice to turn to its black, outer color. Its texture and flavor will take you back to yesteryear.
