Where to get Haribo Salino salt licorice
Thanks to Charles Bacon at Argonne for this one; he had to fly to Amsterdam on a half-days’ notice to repair a cluster that had been dropped by UPS. He came back with some entertaining stories and a stash of black, diamond-shaped salt licorice marked ‘Salino.’ It was unlike any I had had before, with an intense anise flavor and odd bite. Here’s a picture I found on the web:

(As an aside, the bite comes from Ammonium chloride.)
These are really, really hard to find in the US. Lisa Childers, bless her soul, finally got ’er done. Head over to Hollandsedrop.com and hit ‘Special order Laura.’ Quite expensive, almost $75 shipped, but it is 3 kilos of the good stuff.
Another, even more intense, is ‘DZ’ or double salt:

Definitely an acquired taste, also available from Hollandsedrop. For a nice hater review, check out this page on Bad candy.
Anyway, I’ve been out for months and put in an order today; this page is just so I can find the order info next time. ;)
