Black Jack is a type of chewy, aniseed-flavoured sweet that is popular in the United Kingdom. These sweets are known for their distinctive black colour and unique flavour, which comes from the inclusion of aniseed oil. Black Jack sweets are often square or rectangular in shape and have a chewy texture that makes them enjoyable to eat.
Black Jack sweets are often sold in small packs and are a nostalgic treat for many people in the UK. They are sometimes found alongside another classic British sweet called Fruit Salad, which has a similar chewy texture and fruity flavour.
These sweets have been around for many years and continue to be a favorite among those who enjoy liquorice and aniseed flavours. They are typically enjoyed as a sweet snack and their strong and distinctive taste can be an acquired taste for some.
