Liquorice lovers, form an orderly queue…

There are few foods more polarizing than liquorice – much like marmite, you either love it, or you loathe it. But expect to be hearing a lot more about this divisive treat, as the world’s largest “liquorice library” has just opened in The Dubai Mall.

Die-hard liquorice lovers may already know about Lakrids, the gourmet Danish brand that produces the only handmade boiled liquorice in the world. The Dubai Mall store – located on the lower ground floor of Fashion Avenue – will be Lakrids’ first standalone boutique outside of Europe.

The swanky store looks more like a design studio than a sweet shop…

Inside the liquorice library, you can learn the story behind the brand and its various flavours (and do some tastings)…

There is even a private liquorice lounge…

What about the product? Lakrids is said to use only premium raw materials with no additives, and is completely gluten-free.

The liquorice comes coated in unique flavours like salty caramel, rose, mint-dark chocolate, raspberry chocolate, blueberry chocolate, dark and sea salt, passionfruit, and coffee.

You can also shop their special UAE collection, which comes in metallic tones.
