300 gr 10.6 oz - Origin: New Zealand
as seen in the Wall Street Journal.

We've tried a lot of Licorice and when tried these so many years ago, we had all but given up on finding one that was the perfect blend of candy and licorice. Not to sweet, it is a refreshing treat!

Just about every day, when customers stop by our store here in Seattle, we offer them a little licorice log (after they've tasted all the new California olive oils). They say, "Oh, I'm not really a big licorice fan." But they try it - and they're hooked. They buy a bag for their friend, for their mom, and of course, one to keep stashed in the glove compartment.

RJ's is licorice like it used to be. Nothing artificial, not sickly sweet - just real, licorice flavor and super-satisfying, chewy texture. (Disclaimer: If you really hate that anise flavor, this isn't for you. We bet you know someone who'd love it for a special little treat, though...mm-hmm. Thought so.)

As an added bonus, licorice has long been known for its stomach-soothing qualities.

This natural soft black licorice is the softest, most flavorful licorice we've ever tasted - pure licorice taste from start to finish. One bite will make you wonder why you haven't heard about it before!!!

About the Producer
RJ's Licorice Ltd is the sole New Zealand owned and operated manufacturer of licorice confectionery products. RJ's Licorice is a Family owned business and has been operating for seven years out of Levin. Since the outset, they have strived to become New Zealand's leading licorice provider and we have successfully achieved this. We believe that this has been achieved though innovation with our products, offering products of extremely high quality, flavor and texture.

About Licorice
The botanical name for licorice is Glycyrrhiza glabra. It's obtained from the roots of the plant sometimes known as the "Blue Flowering Snow Pea" plant, gown in parts of China, Iran, Iraq and Pakistan. Licorice contains glycyrrhizin, which is 50 times sweeter than sugar and sometimes used to mask bitter flavors in medicine.

The Chinese have termed licorice 'the great harmonizer,' claiming that it blends and balances the effects of all herbs in a formula. Nearly two-thirds of all traditional formulas in Chinese Medicine contain Licorice. In China today, licorice is still the second most prescribed medicinal herb, behind ginseng. Licorice roots have been found in the tombs of the Pharaohs attesting to the great respect for its healing abilities. Hippocrates in the 4th century BC recommended licorice for the treatment of ulcers. One saying of the Arab hysician and philosopher Avicenna was that "the infused licorice purifies the voice and the trachea, and is useful in disorders and diets".

The major active ingredient glycyrrhizin was isolated and shown to have a cortisone-like action which explains its remarkable ability to reduce inflammation and speed the healing of ulcerated tissue.Today, naturopaths prescribe licorice for external ulcerous conditions such as burns, eczema and urticaria (which is swelling induced by poisonous plants or allergic reactions) and for internal ulcerous conditions such as bronchitis, sore throat and upper respiratory and gastro-intestinal tract infections.
