Treat Yourself to the World's Best Licorice

Gustaf's Pontefract Cakes (1/2 lb.)

Average Ratings: 100% liked this product (4 votes)
This is a new product and much stronger in flavor from the previous Pontefract Cakes, which were manufactured by the Haribo company. These Pontefract Cakes are made by the Gustaf's company. The candies are firm, chewy and have a strong licorice taste. The story behind the creation of Pontefract Cakes is interesting. Monks in the 16th century created these disks as a medicine for coughs and stomach complaints. When sugar was added to them in 1760 they became immensely popular. A hard-to-find licorice treat.

"Really good, traditional chewy English licorice"

Wendy Darling on 1/30/2015 12:13:00 PM

"These are delicious! Not firm at all though; I thought they were quite soft. Strong, full licorice flavor, with a 'molassesy' tone to it."

"These are really excellent! They are slightly salty with just the right amount of sweet. They are not as firm as I thought they would be - probably firmer than most licorice but not tough to chew like some. Overall, these are very yummy!"
