Because of its ever-expanding variety of shapes and flavors, licorice has an equal variety of ‘names’. From ‘katjes’ (kittens) and ‘riksen’ (coins) to ‘boerderij’ (farmhouses), ‘haringen’ (herrings) and ‘nopjes’ (little buttons). Griotten (the word comes from ‘agro’ for sour) are tan cubes, while ‘salmiak’ (in pastilles or as a powder) gets its name from the Latin words for salt (sal) and ammoniacum, a specific salt from a site in Libya.
