-- Licorice comes from the root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant and dates back to ancient times. It was used by the ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Greeks for its medicinal properties.

Licorice was found in the tomb of King Tut, and Alexander the Great's army reportedly consumed licorice. Today, it is primarily used in candies and consumed for enjoyment.
