Default Re: Apple Thoughts and Nahkla DA

I believe apples and anise (the licorice taste) are both native to the eastern Mediterranean and Asia. My best guess is that when creating flavors since Apple is not a very powerful flavor (especially before synthetic flavorings)and anise being a popular and common spice in that region, somebody decided to mix the two.
