Hobbits visit Licorice International for Hobbit Day September 22

Three Merry Hobbits

Did you know that September 22 is Hobbit Day?  It's the birthday of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, beloved hobbits of the Lord of the Rings.

Sure enough on September 22, we had three visitors from Middle Earth at the Licorice International Retail Store in Lincoln, Nebraska.  No, it wasn't Bilbo and Frodo. (They were undoubtedly busy celebrating their birthdays with second breakfast or maybe third lunch.) But they sent these three merry hobbits as their representatives.

The three hobbits enjoyed tasting licorice from all over the world. 

Red Licorice Pipes - YUM!
Because hobbits are fond of pipes, they were especially excited to find licorice pipes and enjoyed chewing on them as they walked through the streets of Lincoln's Haymarket after their visit.

You can purchase both red and black pipes at our retail store, located at 803 Q Street in Lincoln. You can purchase black licorice pipes on-line here. That way you can be ready to celebrate Hobbit Day next year - or any time you feel like remembering Bilbo and Frodo.

You can see the flags of the countries where our licorice comes from
