In a Black Tie Mercantile Signature™ Gift Box (Pictured)
About This Black Tie Mercantile SignatureTM Gift Box: At a German trade fair in 1909, Adolf Ahlgren-a wholesaler from Gävle, Sweden-discovered an intriguing cough drop that was sold in German pharmacies. Soon after, the first Läkerol pastilles were introduced. By persuading royalty, Nobel Prize winners, politicians, and singers to extol the benefits of Läkerol, Ahlgren enabled his fledgling product to develop a strong following. The well-known "A" on the pastilles and packages stands not only as a mark of quality, but as a tribute to Läkerol's founder and the idea he championed: encouraging everyone to express themselves and make their voices heard.
Now get a Black Tie Mercantile SignatureTM Gift Box for any occasion featuring twelve 0.8 oz packages of Läkerol Raspberry Lemongrass Sugarfree Pastilles.

These little sweet candies, known as pastilles, are a unique and delicious confectionery that is meant to be consumed by light chewing and allowed to dissolve in the mouth. It is similar to a gummy in nature, but is not as quickly consumed. I enjoy keeping these little boxes of sweetness tucked away in my purse to eat when I’ve craving something sweet since the calorie count is extremely low (5 calories per 2 pieces) and there is no fat, cholesterol or sugar in these delicious treats. The raspberry lemongrass flavor is sweetened with stevia and is not tart in the least or overly sweet. Each piece lasts a long time in your mouth, so this is a great way to satisfy a craving when hunger strikes. I enjoy the fruity flavor and there is no after taste once consumed. It’s made in Slovakia, so this is an interesting European twist in fruit flavored candies, not easily found in the US that is very enjoyable! If you like gummy candies, you will most likely like these as well. I did...
These are a unique candy. You get a generous dozen cute little boxes, so you have extra for sharing (or hoarding). I love that they are sugar free but use natural sugar substitutes instead of junky artificial sweeteners. I was a little bit wary of tasting the candies since I really don't care for the smell of lemongrass. However, I was pleased to note that they taste strongly of raspberry, with only a hint of lemongrass, and there is no aftertaste. The texture is also unique. They start out being almost like hard candy, but as you suck on them they turn into more of a gummy candy consistency. I would rather they were just hard candy, but that's the only negative thing I noticed about these candies. I am thankful for the opportunity to have purchased these candies at a reduced rate in exchange for trying them out and leaving a review that reflects my honest opinion of them.
