So, I’m ethnically Italian and about half my family still lives on the island my mom was born on. Over the years I’ve developed a taste for what I can only describe as intense mint covered licorice, or mint infused licorice.
There’s this brand I’m always sure to grab a bag of before I come home called golia bianca. Golia makes this mint infused licorice and in the bianca variety they’ve encased one of their mint infused candies inside a shell of what must be just mint extract that’s dry.
It’s a pretty strong mint. Give it a try if you can ever find a bag. If ya want I can bring some back next time I go for ya (which will be october)
