Liquorice Day is the 12th of April.
The day was first held in 2004.
Pick up or order some liquorice today for a friend that you know is a liquorice lover (though not everyone is, so make sure you know first — some people are the types who leave all the black liquorice-flavoured jelly beans in the bowl.)
Learn about the difference between liquorice and anise, and why “red liquorice” isn’t actually liquorice at all.
And adults, remember: if you aren’t much for candy, there are always liquorice-flavoured adult beverages such as Anissette, Herbsaint, Pastis, Sambuca, etc.
