Hi, Yet again another question to ask,which will settle an argument . Is it correct that bassetts allsorts can help with constipation , if this is true and I don't believe so,how many will you have to consume ? Thanks

Its the liquorice that helps link text

From Wikipedia: Liquorice may be useful in conventional and naturopathic medicine for both mouth ulcers[23] and peptic ulcers.[24] Liquorice is also a mild laxative and may be used as a topical antiviral agent for shingles, ophthalmic, oral or genital herpes

too much Liquorice is the opposite of viagra.

  Forum Editor 31 Jul 11

As with many things, a little licorice can have beneficial effects. Too much can can cause some serious problems however, so we're not going to offer any advice with regard to quantities here.

Go for a few pints of Guinness. A tad more expensive but much more moving....

Liquorice is also quite good to relieve the mouth burn of hot curries etc. Not quite sure if it has the same effect the following morning at the other end!

I don't like licorice, so Guinness and baked beans for me.
