Warm, pungent, and full bodied. This is how licorice is supposed to taste - not super sweet with just a 'licorice-like' candy flavor. Licorice has a natural, full-bodied and aromatic character – loading it up with additional sweeteners, whether natural or artificial, destroys the flavor of true Licorice. Meltzer's goes all out with their top of the line licorice Puremints pastilles made with real DGL licorice root not just flavor. Meltzer's licorice mints uses a special type of licorice called DGL (deglycerrhized) Licorice. DGL Licorice is particularly known for its healthy and beneficial aspects on digestion. Licorice lovers will fall in love with these true licorice mints – even red licorice lovers who swear to not like black licorice have converted after tasting Meltzer's Licorice mints!
