Danish confectionery brand Lakrids By Bülow has created a three-strong line of slow-crafted, chocolate-coated liquorice treats along with a limited edition variant to celebrate the brand’s 15th year anniversary.

Produced using carefully sourced organic ingredients including ethically sourced cocoa from the Cocoa Horizons programme, the new range is based on the original recipe founder Johan Bülow cooked when the confectionery brand was founded in 2007. The liquorice is gently cooked in an open batch for four hours, rested for 24 hours, and then kneaded by hand to create a rich caramel-like texture.

Made in its Copenhagen factory which runs on 100% green energy produced by Danish windmills, the brand’s innovative new liquorice flavours comprise:

  • Caramel Date – rich liquorice is covered with smooth dulce chocolate, crunchy Maldon sea salt flakes and deglet nour dates (‘one of nature’s sweetest treats’) to create a creamy and indulgent experience
  • Dark Truffle – described as a ‘delightful organic chocolate treat’ with a surprise at its core, this fine cocoa-dusted Dark Truffle has a thin layer of dark chocolate with fruity notes followed by a smooth layer of creamy milk chocolate and a liquorice core
  • Mango Vanilla – fresh and fruity Alphonso mango and sweet Bourbon vanilla are combined with creamy white chocolate and a liquorice centre to offer ‘an intense yet smooth balance’ between fruity and sweet.

The Lakrids by Bülow Anniversary Limited Edition sees the brand’s first product, The Original, remastered in an all-organic variety. Under a thin layer of fine liquorice powder comes rich Belgian milk chocolate and a slow-crafted core of chewy liquorice to create a product that is ‘simple, perfected and instantly addictive.’

The liquorice is sold in recyclable and reusable glass jars which have functional measurements engraved on them to help consumers mix their kitchen creations.
