Doug Erlandsonabout this book: Several years ago, Licorice International, which is the largest source of gourmet licorice in the United States, sponsored a Licorice Memories contest. We received hundreds of heartwarming, funny and romantic essays, all focused on this sweet, sticky, licorice-flavored candy.
Each month for a year, one licorice lover was honored with the publication of his or her essay and a gift certificate. However, there were far too many wonderful memories to simply keep them to ourselves.
Doug Erlandson, a professional writer and one of the partners in Licorice International, pored over the hundreds of essays and selected dozens of favorites in several categories. These selections form the basis of this delightful book.
In addition to the stories, For the Love of Licorice includes well-researched information on the history, cultivation and use of licorice root throughout the centuries, a description of the different methods of making licorice candy and the distinctions between licorices from various countries. These distinctions include sweet, salty, and bitter, soft, firm, and hard.
For the Love of Licorice: Licorice Lovers Share Sweet Memories is a one-of-a-kind book that will appeal to those who love licorice and who appreciate a glimpse into the sweet, funny and poignant experiences of others who enjoy this nostalgic confection.
