Adventures with Licorice: Djungelvrål

A Swedish pal sent us something so peculiar we figure only a Scandinavian can really get his or her mouth around: Djungelvrål salted licorice, by Malaco/Leaf.
The Scandinavian licorice fetish is well documented, and we at 611 Broadway have a range of positions on the stuff. The gamut of opinion in the office ranges from intolerable to interesting, with the former verdict trouncing the latter in today’s taste test four to one.
This salted variety of licorice, with its dusting of ammonium chloride, is definitely an acquired taste. We were happy to run across an outside option from candy connoisseur Cybele at Candyblog. Cybele gave Djungelvrål an “unappealing” rating, a 3 out of 10.
Maybe we’re just tame as hell, but we prefer Daim.
