Candy from Around the World

Pics and brief descriptions of confections various and sundry, from dulce le leche to li hing candied fruits, from all around the world. We have a question: Does anyone else here appreciate strong black licorice? We hated the taste as kids, but it grew on us with age. (Same with mustard on hotdogs, which we regard as a sign of maturity--maybe even more indicative of having grown up than whether you own a couch.) Anyway, we'd love to get our hands on some of that brightly colored, strong and salted licorice they mention.

  1. you might be a candidate for the candyswappers yahoo group. it's mostly a buncha nutty chicks w/ knitting blogs but they/we had their/our first international candy swap event this month. everyone gets a name, you ship $10 wortha candy, someone sends you a box too. it's an int'l group; some of the candyswappers are from faraway places such as japan, malaysia, and guam ...

    I'm a big fan of the licorice.

    Recent favorites include the Liquorice Altoids, the Salt Herring licorice fish, and the allsorts.
