You should always have a bit of bitter with your sweet. It will make you appreciate the sweetness even more. This is the secret to why the Nordic countries love Liquorice so much. But when we add marsipan to the mix, the results are decadent and fancy. This is the finest liquorice you'll find and a perfect gateway drug to that bitter sweet goodness.

I LOVE this licorice, it is not as sweet as licorice candies sold in the USA & has a more intense licorice flavor. It does not contain marzipan (almond paste), I think they are confusing coconut with almonds. The variety is also a plus as there are different kinds in the package and, well, it's pretty! Whenever I can visit Iceland I will take an empty suitcase just to bring lots of this home!
You should definitely do that! Meanwhile, you can order some more from here :)
Licorice varies tremendously from country to country. You can find soft, sticky Australian licorice that is half molasses, or you can find rock hard Dutch licorice that tastes like drain cleaner. For a true licorice lover all of these variations have their place, but they are not all equally nice. Appolo Lakkriskonfekt is a VERY nice licorice. It has a delightful taste. I highly recommend it. The Marzipan is a wonderful accompaniment.
