Swedish Soft Salt Skulls
Hej! These are our Swedish Soft Salt Skulls. If you’ve never tried Swedish salty liquorice, then you really should! Just to give your taste buds a playful slap round the chops! Watch out, though, because they do grow on you, and you could be in for a fresh and unusual taste bud experience. To be honest, we weren’t that keen, to begin with, I mean for the first five seconds until the twists and turns of the flavour sensation have converted us into Swedish Salty Liquorice lovers!
Know your salt, sweety?
Also, if you would like to read an entertaining article about the subject of salty liquorice, we recommend Mark Binnelli’s piece, ‘Salty Tooth’, in the New York Times.
Where does the flavour come from
The delicious zinging salty flavour in these Swedish Soft Salt Skulls comes from this excellent recipe’s particular blend of ingredients. In Swedish, ‘Salmiaklakrits’, which is Salmiak Liquorice, salmiak or sal ammoniac, is also the archaic name for the chemical compound ammonium chloride. The liquorice flavour comes from the roots of the liquorice plant Glycyrrhiza glabra.

These are certainly unusual and super salty. The ammonia taste is like super strong goats cheese. Definitely a new sensation, but I'm afraid they didn't grow on me.
It's the Norwegians who love goats cheese, not the Swedes! We appreciate your adventurous spirit in trying them out, even if they didn't quite win you over.
Unusual! These were a bit too salty for me and the flavour is unlike any liquorice I have ever eaten before. If you love salty sweets and a fan of the sour sweets, give this a go.
