Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Liquorice allsorts (also spelled licorice allsorts) consist of a variety of liquorice sold as a mixture. These confections are made of liquorice, sugar, coconut, aniseed jelly, fruit flavourings, and gelatine. They were first produced in Sheffield, England, by Geo. Bassett & Co Ltd who had taken over Wilkinsons (Pontefract cakes/mushrooms), Barratts (sherbet fountains/sweet cigarettes) and Trebor (mints) before being taken over themselves by the Cadbury's consortium).Liquorice allsorts Allsorts are produced by many companies around the world today, and are most popular in Britain, continental Europe, and North America. South African confectionery giant Beacon produces substantial quantities of the product, where it is both sold locally and exported to such countries as Australia, Canada and Portugal. The Dutch name for liquorice allsorts is "Engelse drop," and in Finland they are called "Englannin lakritsi/laku"; both literally translate as "English liquorice."show more
