I was in my local organic market the other day and I stumbled across this tiny blue box of organic licorice. Yes, organic licorice.

When I think of licorice, I am reminded of the packs of red Twizzlers that I used to devour as a kid. Not exactly a pleasant thought, to be honest.

This organic licorice by Zot is apparently made in Italy using only “the finest organically grown licorice plant root.” The other ingredient in the product is organic anise flavor.

While I have always been used to chewing licorice, the Zot organic licorice is slightly different. This licorice comes in tiny pellets and you just suck on them, like you would a breath mint.

My Take: Much to my surprise, I liked it a lot. It was refreshing, slightly bitter and quite enjoyable.

I could definitely see myself buying it again.

    You should note that the ZOT brand is not original but appears to have been cut & glued onto the original brand under which you will find it widely available. That brand is Zagarese and it comes in other flavors and is available on eBay, among other sellers.

      Hi Elena,

      Thanks for commenting. It appears that ZOT appears to be a sister brand of Zagarese.

      I appreciate your input.

      Live well,
      Max

    This is a medicinal supplement which I successfully use to raise my blood pressure which is dangerously low due to adrenal failure. It helps with CFIDS and severe hypoadrenalism. Prevents fainting, also helps with POTS.

    Hi Max,

    They do! Our stores in NorCal don’t carry Zot licorice and our buyer
    for our 30 stores is not familiar with the brand. I wrote to the company
    to ask them where I could buy their licorice, if at all, in SF. BTW let me know if you ever see it in a WFM store where you live, if you can.

    Thank you and all the best,
    stephanie

      Hi Stephanie,

      I will let you know but I got them at a local market here in NYC called LifeThyme on 6th Avenue.

      I’ll keep you posted if I ever see them at a WFM.

      Thanks for your interest.

      Live well,
      Max

        Unfortunately, LifeThyme stopped carrying Zots Licorice.
        It doesn’t look like there is any other store that carries Zots 🙁
        What a shame.

  • stephanie haughey says:

    Thank you, Max.
    I will look out for it!

    All the best,
    stephanie

      Hi Stephanie,

      I saw that they have real licorice now, not just the breath mints. They look real good!

      Live well,
      Max
