Darrell Lea Black Licorice has a wonderful history. Darrell Lea has been making Australia's favorite "liquorice" for over 50 years. Using a special technique, developed over many generations, the licorice flavor is carefully extracted by steaming the licorice root. The candy is then gently cooked to seal in the moisture, creating its uniquely soft texture and fresh taste. This licorice is now enjoyed around the world!
