Licorice comes in black, red, salty, or sugarless varieties. Here are some of the Chowhounds’ favorite online sources.
Economy Candy in NYC’s Lower East Side is a legendary shop that that stocks a large selection of black licorice, including Kookaburra brand, which some folks view with awe! Not many people seem to know these guys sell online, at: http://www.economycandy.com
Licorice International, out of Lincoln, Nebraska, has many types of imported licorice. Their Dutch and German selections are particularly worth a try; each has its own distinctive flavor. They sell salty licorice, too, which is very much an acquired taste. If you like red licorice, they offer a very nice sampler. Order at: http://www.licoriceinternational.com
For a good selection of sugar free, try Dutch Sweets, at: http://www.dutchsweets.com.
