Holland has a long tradition of producing some of the world's finest licorice, so it is no surprise that's where these lush licorice caramels are made. Since 1820, people have been sinking their teeth into these chewy Dutch licorice caramels and sighing in satisfaction as the creamy, smooth texture slowly melts in their mouth and the intense, yet not overly sweet, licorice flavor tantalizes their taste buds. A must for licorice lovers everywhere. 1.5 lb. bag contains approx. 75 individually wrapped pieces. Not available in California.
Soft, creamy licorice caramels
Experience the true licorice flavor of Dutch licorice
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Rapunzel A study in cognitive dissonance
I bought these after a friend expressed interest in them, but lives in a state where they aren't shipped. I brought them to her & other family members over Christmas. These licorice caramels are a study in cognitive dissonance. Everything about the shape, texture, and mouthfeel says "soft caramel." The flavor says "sweetened licorice." It stickts in your teeth, turns your tongue black, and the licorice flavor is cloying and lingers longer than you'd want it to. If you're into strange candy, this is your thing.

These are the most delicious Licorice Caramels we have ever tasted. Soft and creamy. We ordered these last year and again this year. It has been become a seasonal order for us along with other products that The Vermont Country Store sell. Great place to order from. Unique.

I have never been a candy eater, even as a kid (I'm almost 60.) My only favorite was licorice, but you can never find it except for around Christmas, when you can sometimes find allsorts. My favorite is the caramel-type licorice, which I was delighted to find in the Vermont Country Store. I almost went wild when I saw them- my husband was afraid I'd lost my mind when I started gibbering about the fake licorice "ropes" and other licorice abominations.
I limit myself to two per day to make them last. I have learned to make one caramel last three bites so i don't lose a dental crown. :-)
Thanks for sending me the best licorice I've had in years!

We host a few parties over the calendar year and these never fail to amaze those guests who are fond of the anise/licorice flavors. So creamy good. A hand full may go in a pocket or two but we encourage it.
Thanks for stocking this hard to find childhood favorite.

I love black licorice. These caramels are smooth and creamy! Not many people like black licorice. That is good for me! If you love black licorice then buy these, but leave some for me!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GrandmaBix Rich, tasty licorice
This is a bargain for such rich-tasting licorice. It brings back memories from a mercantile in my youth, where penny-candy came in a huge glass jar and could be ogled by a little girl standing below the high counter. (And she hoped that a kindly shop keeper would take pity and offer one.)

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Licorice Caramels 1.5 lb. Bag …
"This licorice is incredibly smooth and creamy. I've never tasted anything like it!" - Andrea, Vacaville, CA
"My mom says they are the best ever. I am glad we can still get them here!" - jacqueline kuhlman, north richland hills, TN
"For anyone on the East Coast who remembers Goetze's licorice caramel creams, the flavor of these caramels is exactly the same (minus the little white center, of course). Goetze's no longer makes them, but you can still get that wonderful flavor here. This is the second year I am ordering them as a Christmas treat for myself. Go for it!" - Jan, Woodbury, MN
"This is exactly like the Callard and Bowser licorice caramels that were discontinued. Delicious, chewy and strong flavor. I am ordering more today for myself and my friends." - Rae Gomez, Dana point, CA
