You may not like black licorice. I used to not. But, as it turns out, I was just eating crappy black licorice (i.e. the black jelly bean – so nasty). So I encourage you as well (if you are a current hater) to check out quality, real, licorice.
This stuff is fantastic. My wife and I are chillin’ at a local coffee shop (Ithaca Coffee Company) and we picked up some of this to munch on as we hang out. Wow, it is a full flavored, chewy, molassesy-goodness experience from Australia.
I would also recommend Panda Licorice. Also very good.
