So, I happen to LOVE licorice, the real black licorice. It's funny because when you're a kid, black licorice is gross and disgusting, and most adults don't even like it. Seems to be an acquired taste and I came to love it later on. The best thing about eating a bag of black licorice is that when around friends or other people, nobody wants to mooch off you because most people hate it. Regardless, it seems to be a very prized candy/confectionary in Northern Europe in the Nordic countries (and in Europe in general). My cousins are half Swedish, and I was at their grandmother's 90th birthday party a few weeks back, and one of the desserts there was a bowl of the BEST tasting original Swedish black licorice I've ever had.
Anyhow, I've collected a bunch of licorice flavored snus that is sitting in my fridge waiting for me to try them one by one. There's a ton of licorice flavored snus on the market, but here is what I've got stocked up in the fridge and waiting to be used:
- Mocca Lakrits mini portions
- General Licorice
- LD Salmiak
I'm currently going through a can of Jakobsson's licorice, and the only other licorice flavor I have tried was Oden's Extreme licorice, which I found to be bland but I did enjoy it. Jakobsson's licorice isn't sweet by any means, but has more of an herbal sweetness to it that Oden's didn't have. Having tried Jakobsson's melon previously, I expected the licorice flavor to be sweet but no avail. Has anyone tried any of the brands I've listed? Or any other brands for that matter? I've read amazing things about LD and people do describe it as a sweet licorice, but everyone's taste perception can be different.
