Since 2002, Licorice International has been offering gourmet licorice online through its company website to customers throughout the United States. Over the last 10 years, the company has provided European licorice candies and other quality treats from more than 60 manufacturers in 14 countries.

Licorice International, which began in New York City, was purchased in February 2002 by two Lincoln couples, John and Ardith Stuertz and Doug and Elizabeth Erlandson. The website was launched that summer.

Internet commerce was still young at that time and was one of the first web-based stores to offer a specific candy product to customers throughout the USA. Through intensive research and a commitment to personalized customer service, Licorice International has continued to bring the world’s best licorice to people who remember the taste of good, old-fashioned licorice.

Today, Licorice International continues to move forward by offering new licorice products, additional types of candy and a variety of specialty foods at its facility in Lincoln’s Historic Haymarket district. Among some of the new products are gluten-free and sugar-free treats and non-licorice items such as gummy candies, caramels and chocolates.
