Claeys Horehound Candy is an old fashioned candy that dates back to 1919. A hard candy that is full of authentic Horehound taste, and is even known to soothe a sore throat. Horehound has a taste that's a cross between root beer and black licorice. This old fashioned candy is still made in copper kettles just like it was in the old days. Which in turn, enhances it's Horehound herbal flavour.
