Salty liquorice

Salmiakki - A variety of liquorice that contains a relatively large amount of ammonium chloride in addition to the liquorice root extract, sugar, and starch or gum arabic that constitute normal liquorice.

The canonical shape for Finnish salmiakki candies is a black diamond-shaped lozenge. This shape is so popular that in Finnish, the word "salmiakki" can sometimes refer to this shape, instead of the candy.
