Licorice… as a Toothbrush!?

Licorice root first arrived in North America in the 1600s. It was enjoyed as a spice, tea, used medicinally… and even used for dental hygiene as an early toothbrush! Enter the 1800s and up and a fascinating line of licorice sweets emerged. Licorice flavors took off in the late 1800s and early 1900s – Black Jack gumbridge mix, and the first American candy brand, Good N’ Plenty!
