ISO Salted Licorice (Salmiak)

I have a friend who has developed a love for salty licorice (salmiak) after a trip to Finland. I've been looking around Toronto for shops that might carry these treats without success. Does anyone know of any shops that might carry salty licorice?

  1. I think they say it's Dutch, rather than Finnish, but Domino Foods, the bulk place in the north-west corner in the basement of the south St. Lawrence Market, carries salted licorice.

    1. They have at Sugar Mountain at Yonge/Wellesley. All different ranges of salt-factor, too. Try the triple salted - it'll kill ya.

      1. I wish I could get the liquor here.

        1. re: radiopolitic

          I'm pretty sure I've seen it at Bruno's. I've also come across it in dedicated candy stores. I have no idea what turnover is like in those bins, though. Last suggestion: Bulk Barn. I can't guarantee they'll have it, but they do get imported candy products in their original packages, in addition to the bulk stuff.

        2. Thanks for the recommendation of Sugar Mountain. I had no idea where to buy salted licorice in the city. I went today... It wasn't cheap, but the triple salted is amazing if you have a taste for this stuff.
