Back in its early days, licorice was not the sweet treat as we know it but rather used as an herbaceous plant revered for its medicinal properties. So how did “licorice” become a term used to refer to a type of candy?

Candy isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when pairing alcohol with food. And candy is not typically combined with fruit in a dessert. We generally select salty, savory, or acidic flavors to accompany alcoholic beverages. The same approach is used for composing a fruit tray. However, you’ll miss experiencing the subtle contrasts and balances candy brings to these pairings if you don’t include them. Candy is perfect when you want just a little something sweet to go with your after-dinner beverage or fruit selection.
