Just found one of these tins and really had no memory of them, or what the heck the ‘weird black stuff’ was in it, ’til now. Was pretty excited to discover they’re licorice, but now thinking it’s probably not a great idea to suck on 23 yr old mints. :) haha

Is there a distributor in the Kansas City area?

These will turn your teeth black…and they’re actually eaten as a stimulant or appetite suppressant. Although they have a licorice taste, they’re made from an Areca palm tree resin. Don’t give them to the kids! Bonne continuation!!

I’d forgotten about these little treasure – they’re my favorite. I used to eat them like candy when I was a child.

I always found them remarkably disgusting ;)
However, I do love a good dubble zout dropje. Which is a very salty licorice, and causes the uninitiated to retch and gag and the superdutch to lick their chops. yummmmm.

But they came in more of a tic-tac shaped box. We LOVED them. Doesn’t licorice seem odd for a breath freshener?

They were called Sen-Sen… and I loved it when he would share them with me.

But thanks for pointing them out as I never really noticed how great the packaging was (probably because I’ve seen them all my life). Kisses from a Parisian mama xx
