Sharky gave me this thread idea. <3

Do you like licorice?

The cherry red Twizzlers stuff doesn't count. We're talking full on black licorice.

(As an aside, did you know that Twizzlers is in the built-in Firefox dictionary?)

Eww, black licorice.

I like black licorice about as much as I like colon cancer.

I've had a lot of licorice-flavored stuff and rather enjoy it, but the only time I can remember actually having black licorice I'm pretty sure that it wasn't that good. Probably because it was some really cheap stuff by a store's checkout. That being said, I've never had proper licorice, but I'm sure I would enjoy it :P

(Also, Twizzlers only passes as a "word" if it's capitalized. Writing twizzlers (not capitalized) registers as a typo. Randomly capitalized things doesn't automatically let them pass through the filter as names, though; for example, Vaern still registers as a typo. The Firefox dictionary seems to also contain the names of several other products and companies as proper nouns, such as Pepsi, Microsoft, and Firefox.)

Yes, I do, and everyone who doesn't are fired from life effective immediately.

Licorice is an abomination to God.

There's a reason why licorice is always the last remaining candy...

Black licorice is what I would use to prove to children that candy isn't all it's cracked up to be and sometimes you just need to go on and eat your vegetables. In summary: It's horrible.

Black licorice is very tasty, jerks. It's sort of like mint. I can eat it a lot, but eventually it can overwhelm the taste buds, and it winds up just tasting sweet instead of tasting like licorice.

Jagermeister is also good.

Red licorice is also pretty good.

You're welcome, Pike!

I think black liquorice is great and should be available for free for schoolchildren worldwide. Kind of like affirmative action for liquorice.

And once when I was younger and thought I had a world of opportunity ahead of me I had a neat idea to create liquorice infused with alocohol, and call it Liqueurice, and make millions. I now work in an office.

I'll give you one, Jager is good stuff. That's it.

Isn't black licorice what they use to pave roads?
Tastes like it! :eep:

Does partaking in Jagerbombs count?

I love it so much that part of me hates it but mostly I love it! Kind of makes me want an entire bag of Licorice All Sorts :bigsmile:

I like black licorice. I also eat the black jellybeans that people think taste like shit. (They do but w/e man free candy.) Black licorice is obviously an acquired taste for the refined palette. :hattip:

I never knew there was so much hate for licorice. I like that stuff.

I am definitely in the pro-liquorice camp.

It tastes like winning.

It is like claws are torturing my taste bud. Slowly ripping them out but leaving just enough of it intact, like a nerve string so that I can feel every horrible assault that this devil can inflict upon it. Fuck this "candy" and fuck Jager.

So, when I was a kid, my grandpa ate licorice all the time. And goddamn, that shit looked delicious. Finally, one day he gave my seven-year-old self a piece. He never gave any of his eight grandchildren his candy, so I felt so honored! SO HONORED! I took it from him, palms sweaty, excitement mounting! I slowly opened my mouth, and took the biggest bite I could!

And the horror, the horror. It was like D-Day in my mouth.

I couldn't hurt my grandfather's feelings after we'd bonded over this seemingly innocuous piece of candy. I ate the entire thing while he sat there and watched me.

I was scarred for life.
