The cocoa tree, which originally came from the Latin American rainforest, is primarily famous for its beans – the basic raw material of chocolate. But the shells of the cocoa bean fruit are also bursting with a sweetish-soft aroma and contain much fewer calories.
Liquorice has already been known since ancient times. Its sweetening power is about 50 times stronger than that of sugar. It tastes mild-sweetish and bitter-tart.

Barley belongs to the grass family. It is indigenous to the Middle East and the eastern part of the Balkans. In earlier times, barley malt was the only known sweetener – it tastes pleasantly malty and slightly like caramel.
Indigenous to the Mediterranean area and Asia, carob is a plant from the legume family. The long, brown fruit of the carob tree – which grows up to a height of 18 metres – taste sweetish and carry seeds that each weigh precisely 0.197 grams.

Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree and primarily familiar as a spice for both sweet and salty food in the European part of the world. They belong to the myrtle family and have an intensive spicy aroma. They were even worth their weight in gold in both old China and Egypt.
Also called the “king of spices,” black pepper is one of the world’s most important spices in addition to salt. It originally came from the Indian Malabar Coast and tastes intensive-spicy, ranging from slightly spicy to quite spicy.
