NATIONAL LICORICE DAY
National Licorice Day is observed each year on April 12. This day was created to celebrate black licorice, its history, health benefits, and world renown. Enjoy black licorice in twists, stem shaped candies, licorice ropes, jelly beans, jewels, and many others.
Of course, the designation has evolved as people savor all types and flavors of licorice to celebrate the day.
If you’re a fan of licorice and have noticed it makes your tummy feel better, there’s a reason. Licorice root can soothe a stomach bothered by heartburn or gastritis. The glycyrrhizic acid in licorice contains immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties that can help to restore balance to the stomach lining. That’s definitely something worth celebrating! Grab a few black jelly beans from the candy jar for this holiday!
HOW TO OBSERVE
Enjoy your favorite kind of licorice and use #NationalLicoriceDay to post on social media.
