Chew On This, It’s Licorice Day [VIDEO]

flickr user: Ross Elliot

It’s chewy, it’s sweet and it’s fun to eat. It comes in all sorts of shapes or long and stringy. It’s licorice, and today is the candy’s day. But actually it’s a plant.

 

Most of us eat it as candy and it’s simply something to satisfy our sweet tooth.

Actually licorice is a herb and a member of the pea family. The acid extracted from the licorice root is fifty times sweeter than sugar and is used as a flavoring in food, tobacco and of course licorice candy.

Licorice has been used for medicinal purposes and in the fight against prostate and breast cancer.
