Blast from the Past? History of Delfa Rolls
Are you young enough to remember the Delfa Rolls, also called Danish Ribbons? They used to be sold by a few convenience stores in the 1960s. They were pretty hard to find because they were imported from overseas. It was a lot of fun eating Delfa Rolls because you could peel off the strips and chew on them, or just pop the entire roll in your mouth and suck on it until it was gone. You got a roll of licorice that you could separate into four rolls.
For years the only option for Delfa Roll lovers was created by The Gerrit Verburg Company. They are the manufactures of a product called Broadway Licorice Rolls. The texture of the Broadway Roll is a little bit softer, and the taste is a bit different than the original, but they were all that was available… until now.
As you can see from the comments below, many people miss the original Delfa Rolls and if you are one of them, I have good news… Delfa Rolls are on the way back!
Iconic Candy, a company that has revived several classic brands, such as Reeds and Regal Crown is bringing back the original Danish Ribbon/Delfa Roll. According to the company, the product should be available the end of 2018/beginning of 2019.
Stay tuned, as we learn more we will let you know!
