Sample Some of the Finest Licorice from Around the World.
When it comes to licorice, taste buds and preferences will vary greatly. Whether you like your licorice red or black, salty or on the more traditional side and that it hail from England or Australia – Vasilow’s wide assortment of licorice offerings should satisfy just about every licorice connoisseur. The licorice flavor is extracted from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant, which has traditionally been native to the Middle East, southern Europe and parts of Asia. Licorice flavors have been used in candies and sweeteners for generations, and at Vasilow’s we’re proud to bring that licorice tradition to upstate New York. Licorice candies are very commonplace in other parts of the world, and for that reason our licorice selection hails from many parts of Europe and all that way to Australia as well.
