Salty Liquorice

Salty Liquorice is an aquired taste and I love it. Are there any fans out there who know where to get salty liquorice in San Francisco? I am looking for the kind you might get in Holland, Germany, or Scandinavia. I have a craving for some and have not seen it anywhere in the city. I hope someone out there can help.

  1. Call Lehr's.

    1. you can get several different kinds at The Candy Store on Vallejo at Polk, and I think Miett's candy shop has a bunch too, although I prefer to shop elsewhere.
      The owner of The Candy Store would probably try to get you whatever kind you like, she is very accommodating.

      1. re: rabaja

        Miette's (Hayes Valley, not the Ferry Building) indeed has a good selection of licorice -- salty, sweet, soft, hard, smooth, textured, ... .

        449 Octavia St, San Francisco, CA 94102

      2. You can try calling the candy shop on Columbus st. in North Beach. I don't know the the name but they carry a strange assortment of imported candies.

        Molly Stones at the Tower Market location often has interesting stuff and might be worth another phone call.
