ORIGINAL Skipper’s Liquorice Pipes – soft liquorice pipe pieces made from soft, moist Liquorice with pink sprinkles on the end. These make a superb gift for any liquorice lover.
Now (getting the anorak out now), did you know that liquorice started being grown seriously in the UK back in the 1500s and was originally grown only in Pontefract, Yorkshire (yes, hence Pontefract Cakes!), due to its rich loamy soil.
They take their liquorice so seriously in the town of Pontefract that they have a Liquorice Festival there every year – how cool is that?
