Simpkins Nipits Original Pure Liquorice Pellets come in handy hip hinged pocket tins full of pure and natural liquorice pellets.

The liquorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a medicinal plant known to man since the most ancient of times, for the extract obtained from it.

Books on Chinese medicine and the ancient Indian Brahamanistic tradition both agree on including liquorice among the substances having a godlike effect on the human body. Great quantities of liquorice were found among the treasures of Tutankhamen's tomb. Its beneficial characteristics were listed by Hypocrates the doctor for the cure of asma, cough, pulmonary diseases and intestinal problems.

Also in Yorkshire and Lancashire it is colloquially known as Spanish, supposedly because Spanish monks grew liquorice root at Rievaulx Abbey near Thirsk.

Simpkins Nipits, made in Sheffield, home of that other culinary icon, Hendersons Relish, so must be good. very, very moreish, deliciously old fashioned, ideal for diabetics as they contain no sugar and I love the idea of the small retro tin, I remember these tins everywhere in my childhood in the 50's. A fabulous product, swiftly delivered will certainly buy again.
