Icelandic Lakkriskonfekt - Licorice Allsort - Bag of 300g - 10.5oz
Until now we didn't wanted to carry any allsorts licorice - this well-known licorice confectionery mix. Most of them have been just too sweet when we tried them or they are using cheap licorice pieces.
But now we tasted the Icelandic version of it. And we are amazed!
Known in Iceland for ages, it is simply the best allsorts we ever tasted! This is the famous licorice candy enjoyed by the English in Icelandic called Lakkriskonfekt. Invented over a century ago, now even better with the Icelandic touch.
The assortment of not-too-chewy, melt-in-your-mouth bites, includes licorice quarters, rolls, triangles and all elevated with the buttery licorice and sweet marzipan* that is made to perfection by Sambo in Iceland.
Funny side note: the pieces that we call confect are called marzipan in Iceland, but it is not the same as the German marzipan made out of almonds.
