Lakkris in Iceland

Eittsett candy bar

I mentioned in my last post that while in Iceland we were constantly on the look-out for licorice.. well we found it in a few different candy bars along with those delicious meringues..

Eittsett ( I wonder if this is pronounced “eats it”?) has a delicious solid bar of chocolate topped with a thin ribbon of licorice candy – this one was probably the favorite of the different ones I tried.

The Lakkris bar (below) is a solid chunk of licorice candy, with a chocolate coating.

I didn’t like this one nearly as much… I found the licorice a bit dry, and not chewy enough for a good compliment to the chocolate.

Lakkris Nizza is a kind of strange treat – this one is a solid chocolate, with a rope of chewy licorice candy running the length of it. How odd. The chocolate in this one didn’t seem as good as the¬†Eittsett bar either, and the licorice was also a bit dry…

Rosa’s Freyju Lakkris Draumur is similar to the Nizza – but instead has two ropes of licorice. ¬†All of these were readily available at convenience stores, groceries, gas stations, etc… I only wish we had this much licorice selection in our average candy bar selection!

Lakriss coconut was similar to the other Lakkris bar, but had a layer of coconut cream on top of the licorice. I think I liked this one least of all – the coconut cream was similar to the kind found in those huge boxes of chocolates you get during the holidays as a gift…

Pretty short post today – sorry! Lots of other good things to come though!
