Product Description

Our licorice factory dates back to 1876 with a very rich tradition in the production of licorice. It is known for its extensive assortment of licorices, its traditional pieces that have been around for decades. The Double Salt Licorice is definitely one of those traditional pieces. When the Dutch consumers see this product in the store, they know what to expect: A very salted piece of licorice that is semi firm in texture. This is not a licorice for the weak. Expect a very strong flavor. Yet, our Double Salt licorice has a very strong following.

Just because it states licorice - please understand that this is Double Salt licorice - exactly as it states! Double salt means very very salty - an acquired taste. You need to start with regular dutch licorice like the cats then if you enjoy that work your way up. Not fair to give a low rating if you don't know what your doing!

I have always liked licorice from the time I was a youth. (I remember craving the old Switzer's bars.) However, it wasn't until I was an adult, some 33 years ago, that a friend who had been in Holland brought back some salty Dutch licorice and gave me a pack. I was hooked almost immediately. Salty licorice was good. Double salt licorice was better.

For most people, salty licorice takes some getting used to, and some licorice lovers never acquire the taste. That's okay. If you're new to salt licorice, I recommend getting into it gradually. Begin with the Dutch coins (also known as Muntdrops). These have a salty overtone but the sweetness and deep licorice taste predominates. Then try some Farm Licorice (so called because of the cute little farm animal shapes in which it comes) or some Zout (which means "salt"). This will introduce you to traditional salty licorice. Finally, go for the Double Salt Licorice (Dubbel Zout).

While all the Dutch Double Salt brands I've tasted are good, the Kraepelien & Holm is the best. My wife and I are co-owners of a candy store that specializes in gourmet licorice, and this is the brand we carry. Our customers have been quite satisfied with K&H. Each piece is fairly small, round, and chewy, with a strong licorice taste, and, of course, a generous amount of salmiak salt. The only time I wouldn't recommend eating a piece is if you're suffering from canker sores. I can't stress too strongly that this licorice is salty, and will have the same effect on canker sores as does any other salty food.

While Double Salt licorice is great by itself, I'd also recommend it with a good, rich European beer. Try it with a Belgian Tripel or another dark European brew.

I have been eating salted licorice for 30 years from all over the world. This is high quality and ranks among the best in my opinion. Much better than the gustaf brand which tastes a little "plasticy" and hard for my liking. Note this licorice is made in Holland whereas the gustaf brand is made in the US. Also this is very good value. If you go into a shop and try and buy it in small quantities then the price is sky high.

Also those people who gave this 1 star because they didn't like the taste is plain dumb as the ranking is based on this brand versus other brands. Buying 3 huge bags of this without having tried salted licorice before makes no sense at all.

Excellent double salt licorice. The only other I have to compare this to is Gustaf's, which is overwhelmingly ammoniac. This stuff is a bit softer, a little bit sweeter, a bit more licorice-flavored, and a bit less intense on the ammonia front. I'd say this is better balanced, and perhaps more approachable, whereas the Gustaf's is all about the heavy ammonia hit. Depends what you're looking for; I liked them both but this stuff is better balanced, and I think I like it a bit better. You can't go wrong either way. I hope to try every brand available and review them all; I love double salts. Enjoy!

I got addicted to Dutch super salty licorice when I spent a week in Amsterdam for work. I brought a few bags home with me, and they lasted for a few weeks, but when I ran out I had a difficult time finding anything similar to what I had experienced in Amsterdam. I was delighted when I found these on Amazon. I work with a friend from Holland, so he also enjoys salty licorice, so this allowed me to share a bag with him. These aren't the best I've ever had, but they are quite good. They are SUPER SALTY, so if you haven't tried salty licorice before you might want to avoid these and find something less salty to start out with.

I grew up in a Dutch household, and was brought up eating salt licorice. For me, this is the best treat on the market. It's not only yummy, it's good if you have a scratchy throat. I'm so glad to see it on Amazon; and the price really beats the local Dutch Bakery. I don't recommend them for people that don't know what they're getting, but if you do know what you'e getting, I highly recommend them.

You'll either like this double-salted licorice - and, indeed, other salted licorice available on Amazon - or you'll detest it. The reviews on this and other licorice products attest to this polarity among reviewers. It's an acquired taste that, once acquired, proves to be somewhat addictive.

I have only recently become acquainted with salted licorice. I actually prefer the normal salted variety, although the salty kick - from ammonium salts rather that sodium chloride - is very strong and strangely satisfying in these double-salt rounds.

I would advise anybody who is thinking of trying salted licorice to seek out a small pack of the stuff first of all. If you like it, go ahead and order one of the regular-salted Kraepelien & Holm Farm Salt Licorice, 2.2-Pound Bags (Pack of 3) available on Amazon, making sure to take advantage of the subscription offer. Otherwise, you risk wasting your money on something you may consider inedible.
