IFA Salty Black Licorice from Nider Norway

lFA are pastilles with real liquorice launched in 1930, originally endorsed by the well known Norwegian opera singer Ivar F. Andresen. Ivar Frithiof Andresen was a Norwegian opera singer.
By some called "the voice of the century", Andresen was the first Norwegian to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. A bass, he was considered one of the best Wagner-interpreters of his time.

In Norway he is today probably best known for adorning the box of the cough drop brand "IFA", produced by Nidar. Since the 1930s Andresen's face has been seen on the package, along with a quote recommending the product to "singers, public speakers, smokers and athletes." Wiki
