The BIG Liquorice Lover Box!
Either you love it or you despise it: Liquorice. For Icelanders it seems to be more like: Either you love it or you are obsessed with it!
In this box we assembled ALL the liquorice-y products we have at the store! If you are into it you will love this box that incorporates liquorice in all kinds of different ways.
Mind you, this picture does't even contain all of the items in it! There is more! We just couldn't cram it all in there! Click and take a look at all the liquorice deliciousness that awaits you!
This box is just under 2 kilos folks so be careful and make it last! Like every other wonderful thing in life liquorice is unhealthy except it is enjoyed responsibly! Savour it!
These little devils really pack a punch! "Háls" means throat so these were originally made to soften and treat a sore throat. But like with anything else, Icelanders wanted liquorice and fire in it so now it hurts your throat to eat! Well, not really though. They are just delicious and spicy now.
Legend states that when kids in the 70's went to the candy store they would buy one classic Nói milk chocolate bar and one liquorice ribbon and eat them together. Picking up on the trend Nói started packaging the set and selling together as "One Set" or "Eitt Sett"! Try it!
If you are like a lot of Icelanders, you are a liquorish purist. Meaning you despise any attempts at mixing liquorish with marzipan, chocolate, pepper, caramel...You just want your liquorish straight up! Svarti Galdur means Black Magic by the way...
Enter the deep! Djúpur is not as old a product as one would think by the room it seems to inhabit in every Icelanders heart. The combination af hard, sugary shell-like exterior with soft chocolate and liquorice interior has made "Djúpur" one of the most celebrated candy brands in Iceland. Like a pop song that haunts you for decades on end, the word "Djupur" will very possibly be on your mind and lips more often than you will admit.
Icelanders have an odd obsession and dare I say addiction towards black liquorice and Apollo is the gateway drug sort to speak. Combined with some sort of marcepany sweet substance the liquorice takes on a whole new persona and before you realize it, you have devoured all of that persona.
Omnom (Liquorice & Sea Salt + Liquorice & Raspberry)
What is there to say about liquorice? Icelanders love the stuff! It’s EVERYWHERE! And it’s the best liquorice you’re likely to have - possibly because heavy marzipan to liquorice ration - so stock up! With marzipan added to the mix, the sweet and bitter taste is sure to get your taste buds tinglin’.
Liquorice and chocolate fans, rejoice. Your favourite combination has come to life in the size of the pebbles of Iceland’s famous black beaches, although thankfully, not an actual rock. Take a bite from one and you’ll swim in the delectable, creaminess of chocolate followed by the strong notes of black liquorice. One of the most common candies in Iceland and an undeniably addictive pairing.
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...
What are they? Well, Opal are small, round, salmiak liquorice pastilles that are one of the things you would find in the pocket or purse of the average Icelander and has been for decades. Everyone knows the taste and it doesn't change although they add varieties regularly (and so will we).
And what do Icelanders do with high quality, pure sea salt harvested from one of the cleanest oceans on earth? Well, mix liquorice into it of course! Great fun to experiment with. Good on almost any chocolate-y dessert and even on eggs, white fish and in a glaze. Try it!

I was in liquorice heaven, definitely a worthwhile experience. I shared the contents with a friend and now I am regretting my decision
Amazing black licorice package
I was Great . 4 stars because some of the items I didn't like. The Djupur both the brown and white coating were Amazing. I never had that before. The licorice tube with the sugar inside was also Amazing. The Opals are good. Overall a great experience
