One of my friends brought this Finnish hard candy licorice into our office today; it's called Tyrkisk Peber which is Danish for Turkish Pepper. The candy used to be produced in Denmark but the candy maker, Perelly, was bought out by the Finnish company Fazer. The candy is flavored with ammonium chloride and pepper. For the record ammonium choloride, among other things, is used to clean the tips of soldering irons and used in solder as flux - and they put this in candy!?
In my humble opinion, it was disgusting! Honestly, this candy made me nauseous. Apparently this candy is extremely popular in Scandanavia - haven't they ever heard of Twizzlers?! I got rid of the taste by eating a piece of Lindt dark chocolate and drinking a pint of water!
