About us



The Kolsvart dream started a decade ago when we wanted to open the best café in our hometown of Malmö, Sweden. Our guests loved the coffee but the dream quickly became a financial nightmare. We were wandering in the dark and ironically, “kolsvart” means pitch black in Swedish.

But out of the darkness a new dream was born. We took our passion for pure and natural flavors and created Kolsvart the confectionary company. It started with traditional Swedish licorice but quickly became so much more.

Our ambition is to do the simple things best, which is always the hardest. We focus on finding the perfect balance between taste, purity and texture. We love to surprise our customers with new flavors and experiences. To do this we experiment and collaborate with artists and creatives who share this curiosity.

There is always something new to discover at Kolsvart and we invite you to explore this dream with us.

You <3 Kolsvart

Licorice

rokt

Rökt – Smoked

RÖKT is a licorice that is both simple and ingenious. Two traditional Swedish flavours are combined by leaving the licorice to cold-smoke for two days over alder shavings. Our licorice is smoked by Per i Viken.

salt+hallon

Salt + Hallon – Salty + Raspberry

SALT + HALLON is salty licorice and raspberry, black and red. A modernised classic, where the only addition is the innovative list of ingredients: no additives, no colouring (well, apart from carrots), no chemicals, but with real raspberries.

salthavssalt

Salt + Havssalt – Salty + Sea Salt

SALT + HAVSSALT is salty licorice with added sea salt. It’s not as easy as it sounds. A delicate balance to get it right.

salt

Salt – Salty

SALT is a traditional Swedish and Nordic salty licorice. We focus on purity and balanced flavours, adding salmiac and salt.

sot

Söt – Sweet

SÖT is our basic product. It is also our bestseller and starting point, the perfect sweet licorice. Taste the poised balance and purity. The more you chew, the better it tastes.

sotingefara

Söt + Ingefära – Sweet + Ginger

SÖT + INGEFÄRA is yet another flavour for licorice lovers. Our sweet licorice with real ginger is a modern classic. Sound simple, tastes fantastic!

choklad+salmiak

Choklad + Salmiak – Chocolate + Salmiac

CHOKLAD + SALMIAK is salty licorice rolled in chocolate and salmiac. A burst of Nordic traditional flavour, combining the saltiness of salmiac with the sweetness of chocolate.

Fish

Röding – Char

RÖDING is gluten-free, raspberry-flavoured confectionery with no additives, colourings, etc. The tart, fresh taste comes from raspberries. The perfect complement to licorice.

Rökta fiskar – Smoked Fish

RÖKTA FISKAR is gluten-free salty, fish-shaped licorice that is cold-smoked over alder shavings. It doesn’t get more Swedish than that, and it’s the world’s only smoked licorice, as far as we know.

Saltade fiskar – Salty Fish

SALTADE FISKAR is gluten-free, salty, fish-shaped licorice, known as “the Swedish fish”. Sounds easy, and it was.

Fish

LAKRITS FISKAR – LICORICE FISH, our gluten-free sweet licorice. A fresh, sweet licorice with a lot of flavour.

Kol-Art

konfektyr_s

Confectionery

At last, we introduce what might become a new classic: the best of Swedish summer, in a delicious palette of raspberries, elderflower, bilberries and licorice. The scents of a forest glade enhance the experience of this chewy triangle mix in different flavours.

No, sorry. We only sell to wholesalers and retailers. You can find our stockists by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. If you can’t find a stockist near you, please contact us!

There are no shops selling Kolsvart in my city, so can I buy your licorice online?
Unfortunately, we don’t have a web shop, but some of our stockists do. They are listed under stockists, and we suggest you contact one of them to get real licorice by post!
