cachou lajaunie licorice


Add to Wish List

These tiny licorice based candies are still made in Toulouse, southwestern France, where they were invented by the pharmacist Leon Lajaunie in 1890. Don't let their size fool you: these French hard licorice candies are extraordinarily strong, a result of the mint extract which is added to the licorice, and are a powerful breath-freshener.

The trademark small yellow tin was invented by a clock-maker friend of Lajaunie, who designed it to fit in a watch-pocket. Warning: Excessive consumption of licorice can affect blood pressure, IOP (intra ocular pressure), and potassium levels. Cachou Lajaunie hard licorice tablets are imported from France
