A Bit of History

Licorice arrived in North America somewhere in the 1600s.  The root was used as a spice, tooth-cleaner, and medicine and, at the rise of candy in the mid-1800s, a treat. Licorice is about 50 times sweeter than sugar – the root was sold in apothecaries, penny candy stores and other places as a treat. Later, it became an ingredient  in such favorite candies as Good n’ Plenty (1893), Licorice Allsorts (1899), and Licorice Laces (1925).
