I was in a cab in Manhattan coming down 7th Ave. and between12th & 13th St. ( I think) on the West side of the street was a small candy store with half a dozen handwritten signs all over the window saying: DUTCH LICORICE.
What's the deal? Is this especially flavorful? tender? does it come in exotic flavors?
I am not a big licorice fan but I am curious as to why this may be superior or worth checking out.
