Welcome to our world of imagination
Our traditional batch-style recipe is hand-made with licorice root and molasses, bringing you the well-loved taste and texture of a truly traditional licorice and making Uncle John's Licorice the last of the old-fashioned small-batch makers in Australia.
Showtime at Uncle Johns Licorice
Our family has been going to the Royal Melbourne Show for as long as I can remember, over 40 years! I have such fond memories of the wildlife display, the farm animals, the parades, the wood chopping, and of course, back then, you couldn’t go home without a Cupi doll. It was all about a doll on a stick!
The tradition continues and still includes my parents, sisters and now our kids and grandkids. So, can you imagine my excitement when in 2006 we brought our own business to the Royal Melbourne Show?
It was me and my two sisters, Melinda and Julianne, a home-made stand and a lot of laughs.
Now we could spend 11 days at the Show, 10 days working and 1 Family Show Day! It is such an amazing feeling to go to the showgrounds for set up. Seeing the rides going up, the showbags coming in, the smell of the animals, the buzz in the air, the anticipation of the excitement to come.
I still can’t believe we are going to miss our second year of the Melbourne Show. But, as they say, ‘The show must go on!’ Our now famous Uncle John’s Licorice Lovers Showbags are available online for the duration of what would have been the Melbourne show, Thursday 23rd September to Sunday 3rd of October.
So don’t wait, step right up and treat yourself. It’s…………SHOWTIME!
OMG!! We received our order in the post today, it is seriously the best licorice I have tasted so yum and great value, great flavor, will be buying again, easy to order, and quick delivery.
