Looking for licorice

Mugs | Dec 18, 2002 10:19 AM

1.Where can I get great licorice candy in Chicagoland, preferably plain, unadorned, and uncoated? (For the record, the best I've ever had was from a vendor on "candy street," a lane in Bologna my wife and I happened upon one night twenty years ago. Thick and dusky black like electrical cable; aromatic.)

2. Anyone know where I can buy the French breath freshener--little pieces of strong licorice--that comes in a yellow and black tin about the size of a silver dollar?

Thank you.
