Amarelli Rossano Licorice Hard Candy
Each decorative and collectible tin of Amarelli Rossano Licorice Hard Candy contains small, slightly rounded, crunchy pieces of pure licorice—distinctive treats with a bitter, long-lasting taste. Made in Italy, these candies are 100% pure, free of preservatives or additives.
Licorice plants are traditionally grown in Southern Italy’s Calabria region (the area became known as the “licorice route” in the 17th century). In 1731, the Amarelli family opened a licorice candy factory in Rossano. Today the company, in its 13th generation, preserve the traditional manufacturing process, while adapting it to modern standards. The plant’s roots are powdered to extract the juice and turned it into a dense, fragrant paste. A mastro liquiriziaio (chief-licorice worker) personally supervises the cooking phase, establishing the exact moment when the dough is ready to be transferred to the molds. The result is a black and sparkling gourmet jewel. Each tin of Amarelli Rossano Licorice Hard Candy holds 0.7oz.
