Licorice: An Ancient Treat

Often called an "ancient treat," licorice root has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. It was even found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Licorice has been known to have anti-inflammatory qualities and has been used as a cough and respiratory remedy over the centuries. Although black licorice was first developed, cultivated and turned into a candy in an English monastery, the country that holds a wild affinity for this candy lies farther south. Nothing compares to the Netherlands' passion and true love for this treat!

The Dutch Love of Licorice Drops

Today, the Dutch lead the world's consumption in licorice - about four pounds per person, per year! In fact, about 20 percent of the candy sold in Holland today is licorice. The Dutch "drop" (as licorice is called in the Netherlands) is now a beloved Dutch treat; it takes on shapes like coins, cars, hearts, ropes (scheepstouw), herrings and cats (katjes).
