Licorice is a plant from the bean family most used for its root. The root, which is up to fifty times sweeter than sugar, can be chewed on by itself as a treat or used to flavor various types of licorice candies. In the United States, sweet red and black licorices are the most common, though there are other varieties that are popular in Europe, including salty black licorice. Anise, which has a similar flavor to licorice, is also commonly used in licorice candy, though the two plants are unrelated.
