At LAKRIDS BY BÜLOW, we are constantly experimenting with new exciting flavor combinations in our Creative Lab. Our Head of Product Development, Fransisca, has introduced us to many unique pairings of chocolate and licorice, resulting in some truly surprising and delicious treats. Here are some of them!
1. LICORICE AND ROSES
Exclusively made for the Arabic market, we introduced our CRISPY ROSE licorice some years ago. A seductive combination of white chocolate with creamy yoghurt and a sweet core of the finest gourmet licorice. Real rose petals, strawberry and redcurrant form a magic union as the floral notes of the fruit are highlighted by the sweetness of the rose.
2. LICORICE AND BIRTHDAY CAKE
Our favourite celebrations are birthdays - and what is a birthday celebration without cake? In 2022 we introduced a fun and playful LAKRIDS LOVERS limited edition, BIRTHDAY CAKE. For this flavour, we shared our interpretation of a traditional Danish layered cake with cream, fruit and sprinkles; a fulfilling taste of cream, vanilla and fruity notes from strawberry and pineapple combined with sweet licorice, all swirled in soft white chocolate. And of course a lot of sprinkles.
3. LICORICE AND CHILI
Licorice and chilli is a flavor combination that's more popular than you may think; so much so that our 4 - HABANERO has earned a spot in our Classic Assortment. This may sound like an unusual combination, but sweet licorice combined with fresh habanero chilli is a good example of how two natural forces can create a new taste sensation. Prepare for a hot yet harmonious bite.
4. LICORICE AND SOUR CANDY
As something completely new, we tested the unexpected combination of our 3 - RED licorice and sour candy among our taste panel, LAKRIDS LOVERS in 2022. The result was SOUR STRAWBERRY. Imagine freshly picked green strawberries together with exquisite red licorice in a sweet, fruity bite. Enjoy how fresh and sour notes from crispy, green strawberries are perfectly balanced with chewy red licorice, all swirled in silky white chocolate and a crunchy, green sugar shell for an extra sour twist.
5. LICORICE AND MINT
Mint and chocolate is a flavor combination that has been around for many years, and while it is generally liked by many people, it can also be controversial - especially when you pair it with licorice. However, after introducing this flavor combination for the first time in 2019, many requested that we bring back a licorice with mint. CRISPY MINT is a part of our 2022 WINTER collection - sweet licorice combined with soft milk chocolate with a hint of mint. A crispy shell of white sparkling sugar will make you think of white, freshly fallen snow.
By taking the classic flavors of chocolate and licorice and pairing them in unexpected ways, we have created many flavors over the years that are sure to surprise and delight anyone who tries them. Whether you're a chocolate lover or a licorice fan, there is a flavor combination out there that will suit your taste!
