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.


Oh Canada!We can only accept Canadian orders


Our online store is set up to allow you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. It also enables you to pre-order and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas. We strive to keep the prices listed on our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Furthermore, package weight variations for meat and cheese products make it impossible to provide accurate fixed prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate any changes in pricing as well as the actual prices of weighed items. You will then be able to confirm your order and arrange payment. Thank you for shopping with us! We hope it is a pleasant experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products or our ordering process.
