Good for the soul—bad for the teeth

Lately I can't keep my hands out of the liquorice bag while I'm typing away. If I continue to scoff on at this rate, I may eventually grow sick of them (as if), and I'm concerned about the state of my teeth. Chomping on chewy, sugary sweets all day long is not good for them.

The solution, of course, is sugar-free liquorice.

And here deBron's Zoute Klavertjes ('salty clover') hits the spot: chewy, bouncy, pleasantly rounded and with a pure, satisfying hit of ammonium chloride; they are among the very best. I am at this moment devouring the very last one. I bought them in a small sweet shop on Murray Place in Stirling city centre, but I have never found them anywhere else. Intriguingly, their ingredients are listed in such Mediterranean languages as French, Italian, Spanish and Portugese, so you'll never know where you may find them...
