Black Licorice Specialty Shops

Ah yes, the always polarizing black licorice. Whether you love it or hate it, are there any shops in NYC with an excellent selection? Any BL specialists?

  1. Not sure if they are considered specialists, but Economy Candy on Rivington has a good selection.

    1. I saw a bunch at Eataly few mos back. Dean and Deluca also.

      1. The Sweet Life on Hester Street has a variety of licorice . Not too far from Economy Candy-you can do a comparison tasting :)

        1. Not a shop, but one of a number of web retailers specializing in many kinds of mostly Dutch licorice, to which I am alas addicted.

          1. Buona Italia in the Chelsea market also has natural licorice root if you want to go straight to the source.
