Soft Salt Finnish Liquorice
This soft salt Liquorice is more like the Dutch traditional salt flavour, but ours is made in the classic Finnish style. As a result, it has a distinctive salty flavour and a remarkably satisfying soft and chewy texture. It is an acquired taste, but one worth learning, in our opinion!
Salimak means Salt in the world of Liquorice.
Finnish author Jukka Annala speculates that salty Liquorice originates at drug stores that manufacture their own cough medicine. However, when and where ammonium chloride and Liquorice were first combined to produce salty Liquorice is unclear. Still, by the 1930’s it was made in Sweden, Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands as a candy.
Sweet or Salty or both?
If you are from Finland, this won’t be a tricky question; you will have tried myriad types of Liquorice, and I bet that you may like salty Liquorice! But, have you tried both types of Soft Finnish Liquorice? My favourite is Sweet as I can get my teeth into it. It’s so chewy and mouthwatering; however, sometimes there’s nothing I like better than a nibble of Salty Liquorice.
