My new favorite thing: These silver licorice my friend Caleb brought back for me from Italy. He texted me pics of these from a shop he was at — see movie here — in either Rome or Naples and asked me if I wanted any. I replied, “OF COURSE!”

They look like silver dental fillings but are in fact very tasty, slightly chewy pure licorice (liquirizia pura) treats treated with some kind of edible silver sheen. They’re super refreshing, like breath mints, though I can’t decide if they are actually mint. The ingredients info mentions licorice, sugar, acacia (cattù) and “aromi” (flavors).

They are called terra cattù and you can find them online here on this amazing site for all things Calabarian licorice.
