Stealing candy from a baby is actually very challenging, considering infants' sharp teeth, grabby fists, and extensive crib training in mixed martial arts. Explore an easier avenue of candy acquisition with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of licorice and candy from Licorice International, located on Q Street.
Licorice International takes candy cravers on a multicultural journey with more than 160 types of licorice and a bounty of candy hailing from 14 countries. Kookaburra strawberry twists ($4.50 for a 1/2 lb.) are crafted with an Australian heating and cooling process that creates a chewy, soft texture for its stocky morsels, and German-favorite black licorice wheels ($4 for a 1/2 lb.) wind a ribbon of old-fashioned licorice into a pinwheel for a whirligig of hypnotic delectability. Purists can opt for Kenny's candy twists ($5 per lb.), available in flavors such as black, cherry, blue raspberry, chocolate, or piña colada. Salty licorice (from $1.50) appeases the czars of each tongue territory, and gluten-free candy ($2+) allows for wheatless noshing.
Aficionados can revel with other sucrose-seekers at Licorice International's celebration of National Licorice Day today from 9:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. Sample free licorice, licorice coffee and tea, or adopt a licorice hairpiece before browsing the treasure trove of sweet snacks within the store's 4,400-square-foot facility. International foodie Chef Judy will host her show, Judy a la Carte, live from within the store.
