There are many types of licorice, which comes from the liquorice plant, a herbaceous perennial legume native to southern Europe, India, and parts of Asia. It is not botanically related to anise, star anise, or fennel, which are sources of similar flavouring compounds. Licorice is also used to flavor tobacco products. Licorice is very sweet, with its essence from glycyrrhizin, which has a sweet taste 30–50 times the sweetness of sugar. Have you sampled licorice?

There are licorice shops--candy shops devoted entirely to licorice--in various cities such as in Lincoln, Nebraska where International Licorice is very popular both among locals and with online customers. Do you or would you enjoy shopping in a Licorice Store?
