Bingó kúlur! By popular demand!
Every Icelander knows the taste of these chewy liquorice balls. It is the taste of youth and unlike anything you will have tasted before we believe. Despite the cute name this is some bad ass candy. If you had a loose tooth you needed out as a child in Iceland you would most likely be prescribed a Bingó kúla to hasten the process. It is so sticky that sinking your tooth into it and pulling would surely do the job...
Another household trick involving Bingó kúlur is freezing them. They become hard as a rock and will break rather than "stretch" when bit into. Be careful though. You could easily break a jaw.

The Bingo Kulur was fused together when I received it - but it was still great!
