Pontefract Cakes are a traditional sweet in a shade of black, shaped like circles and have the taste of aniseed and liquorice.
They have a gummy texture and are a medium soft sweet. These rings are perfect for anyone who is a fan of the aniseed and liquorice.
The original name for these small coined sized liquorice is a “Pomfret” cake, which is after the old Norman name for Pontefract. Nowadays they are more commonly know as “Pontefract” cake.
