Traditional Aniseed Balls are available to buy online from our UK award winning sweet shop
Shiny and hard and pleasingly uniform in size, Aniseed Balls are a favourite traditional sweet. Measuring about 1cm across.
Aniseed Balls are rather like a Gobstopper in their hard consistency. Of course they are strongly flavoured with Aniseed. And they will last for absolutely ages when sucked!
In 2009, aniseed balls were voted as the UK’s favourite childhood sweets in a poll of confectionary fans. Not surprising really, since they are delicious and memorable.
Aniseed has traditionally been used to treat all sorts of issues, including upset stomachs, trapped wind, nausea, constipation, coughs and colds. But most people just love the flavour of these punchy little aniseed balls…
