Kookaburra licorice uses authentic licorice root extract -- unlike most licorices available in North America -- to get its wonderful licorice flavor and soft texture. The ingredients are cooked for several hours and the greenish-colored licorice is then extruded, heated and cooled several times before it is cut and packaged. This heating and cooling process causes the licorice to turn to its black, outer color.
Its texture and flavor will take you back to yesteryear. We recommend you try Kookaburra Licorice with gourmet coffees, micro-brewed beers, or a nice ruby port wine for an added boost of flavor.
