You need it every day if you're an aficionado
5/5

Since I am biased because I was brought up on this acquired taste. Salty little gems that will light up your taste buds. If you think about it, if you offer your friends a taste, they will either spit it out instantly and ask what the f*#& you just gave them, or they will be ordering some for themselves soon. The same is true for my other favorite form of salty licorice, also known as salmiak licorice and Dutch licorice. Take your pick, you have been warned. * * I have updated In light of some of the previous reviews, I felt it was necessary to expound that the saltiness of these types of licorice is not coming from standard table salt (sodium chloride, the granular white stuff you sprinkle on your food at dinner). The licorices are not salted with regular salt to give them this distinctive taste, but rather with salmiak (ammonium chloride), usually between three and seven percent candy this is what gives the confections an exceptional, refined taste (take it or leave it).

Salt Licorice
5/5

This was a delight to discover here on Amazon. I've long enjoyed my favorite German licorice. The pancakes were slightly overpriced but they were every bit as good as I remembered. I warn my American brothers and sisters. The licorice on this sachet is not your sweet sissy licorice that sells out at Walmart. It's a true jewel of licorice and a salty licorice at that. Travelers who have been to Holland, Denmark, and Germany in the past can attest to the fact that negative reviews indicate a restriction in palate and not an actual problem with the product. I am very happy with my purchase.

There was a part of me that wanted to fall in love with In my adult life, I've grown to enjoy all types of "Australian" licorice, particularly Kookabura and Wiley Wallabee brown (real) licorice
3/5

The licorice cats and coins of my youth are also favorites. Having loved coins as a child, I purchased these in the wish that they would be the same coins that I loved then. It was clear to me that this item had a salty, ammonia flavor from reading all of the reviews. As soon as I was ready, I jumped into action. My impression was that is was, at least. When I first bit into a licorice coin, a strong taste of salt hit me, making it immediately evident that these were not the licorice coins I had grown up with. The flavor was something foreign, and it was In fairness, I could have been converted to liking these if the licorice (black licorice) flavor had been stronger, but sadly this is not the case. Licorice is completely overpowered by salt and ammonia, leaving little room for its flavor. There's no way that I can argue with the texture they have Not the flavor I like (at least not for Having grown up in a regional area, I know that these are a local favorite, so if this is what you know as licorice, you will probably adore.

It is for those who drink ammonia regularly that these would be a good fit for you
3/5

I thought I was chewing on ammonia tablets when I first bit into it. The above statement is not an exaggeration. There is no logic to this. This candy is actually consumed by some people, I find it incredible. It will seem as if you just swallowed a gulp of parson's ammonia if you bite into them and smell them. I am sure that I will throw the whole bag away after I let my wife try them. The price was outrageous and the money was wasted!.

The piratos
5/5

You might be somewhat disappointed in this product if you are Danish, though I think you almost have to be to appreciate salty licorice. Piratos were usually quite hard when new, and it was a secret to keep them stored and soft just long enough to enjoy them later. Currently, they are softer than ever - so soft that they are almost like gummi bears, and are not nearly as salty as they once were Our situation may be better if we move forward in this way. It is not a part of our diets to get healthier, though.

I had no idea it would be this acquired taste
3/5

Total surprise. My palate was almost overwhelmed with such an intense chemical taste that I could not swallow it. When I tried to eat two, I hoped the second wouldn't be the same and it was too weak for me. There must be a super super acquired taste to these. Some people are buying them. The package was a good size and arrived fast, but I threw them out. It's going to be a long while before I order other flavors, but I've decided to avoid the salty ones.

I like the candy, but the prices are too high
4/5

Licorice especially loved in Denmark thanks to its strong, salty taste. It is wonderful candy, as are other Eurocentric varieties of haribo candies, but it is You will be charged 3$ or more if you want Unless you live in a wealthy country, the price of 1oz is too high. Could it possibly be worth it to get a little taste of.

There's nothing better than a salty snack
3/5

Don't get me wrong, every other food tastes great with salt. It is often added to a variety of foods. It's impossible to tell from the bag that this licorice is licorice if it doesn't say so. The only thing you can taste is salt, which if it didn't say so, you wouldn't know what it was. Ate it for a few minutes. I ate 3 or 4 pieces of each. All of the remainder was disposed of in the garbage. You have been warned. This is not good licorice. You should not buy it. Try to find something else to buy.
