Friday, April 12th is National Licorice Day.
Did you know that more than 30,000 tons of Red Vines are made each year or more than 400,000 miles of licorice that’s enough to wrap around the Earth more than 16 times!
The American Licorice Company has been producing licorice for 33 years and produce Red Vines and Natural Vines. They make Red Vines, Grape Vines, Natural Vines and more! Licorice is derived from the licorice root, which is derived from the Greek word that means “sweet root”. For centuries licorice was used to treat peptic ulcers, sore throats and coughs but it makes for a delicious candy since it’s 50 times sweeter than sugar.
