You are asking about Dutch branded liquorice (note better spelling) on a site for English speaking folks with an interest in Sweden, and think you will get responses from Swedish people who by the way have their own perfectly good brand of liquorice and whose second choices might be Finnish liquorice or English Bassets ! Clearly your research is not going to be worth much.

I'll skip the irrelevant survey (i'm not Swedish and don't eat the dutch product), but growth of the raw material product, is very interesting. smile.gif

Liquorice is indeed the British spelling therefore better. Licorice is for those who speak English, but not very well. I.e. those from North America. smile.gif

perhaps the founding fathers were good at maths instead, which would explain the very poor spelling of English that developed over there?! wink.gif

Do Aussies and Kiwis have their own version of English?

"Liquorice is indeed the British spelling therefore better"

Why is it better to be inefficient?

I try, often to no avail, to suppress any thoughts about licorice.

No it's better to be correct.
