Salmiak Filled Licorice

Salmiak is a salty flavoured compound (sal ammoniac; ammonium chloride) that is often used with licorice in making Northern European Zwart Wit candies. Zwart/Black refers the licorice. Wit/White refers to Salmiak:

Zwart Wit Kogels/Balls are wrapped hard brown candies  filled with salmiak powder that will begin to seep out as the outer candy dissolves in your mouth.

Scheep’s Touw/Ship’s Rope are hard log shaped candies also filled with salmiak powder which will seep out. Those not familiar with the candy have learned the hard way that biting the candy might offer a stronger salt dose than expected or enjoyed.

Sip/Rounds are a black softer candy also filled with salmiak but not in a powdered form.

Our online store allows you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. You can pre-order for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas OR make arrangements with us to have your order shipped. We strive to keep the prices in our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Products with variable sizes like meat and cheese products will reflect approximate prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate with you about shipping costs and any pertinent stock or price updates. Once you have said you wish to proceed we will send you an order summary. You will then be able to pay by eTransfer or call us with a credit card payment.
