    Yep. Can smell them on the shelf, they're so strong. And they sort of burn in your mouth.
    Ahhhh, but the taste. I used to like the "Black Jack" gum when I was little. Dad & I use to 'fight' over the black jellybeans. We were so happy when the candy companies got smart and started making bags of black jellybeans only. Speaking of jellybeans, they and gumdrops are really good with popcorn. Oughta try it. :)

    EEEWWW Yuck!!! I'm gagging now!

    I was in my son's class room one day and they have those scented colored marker's, he was having me smell them, and most of them smelled pretty good, then he sticks a black one under my nose which smelled like black licorice and I start gagging, needless to say his 3rd grade class had quite a laugh that day!

    I wonder why that is. My son can't use these Altoids while he works (guitar teacher) because it makes the whole room smell & gags his students!
    There is an old German cookie, my aunt use to make every Christmas, called a Springerle. I since, have gotten the recipe. They take 3 days to make and when they are done right, you could build a castle with them, they are so hard. But, they are flavored with Anise (seeds, but now oil).

    I would hate those. My mother used to talk about when licorice was the only candy available. If that were the case, I would never have eaten the stuff in my life. I really don't like that flavor at all.

    Personally, I think more people hate it, than like it. But those of us who do.......
    I don't drink, but someone poured me some Sambuca which has a strong Anise flavor. It WAS good: nice after dinner sipping. But too much of that could get a person puking real quick.

    Hey Joz ,
    I'm a big fan of licorice (black licorice is the only real licorice) . The Greeks make a liquore named Ouzo , great licorice flavor and packs a killer punch .
    As far as jelly beans , Jelly Bellies are the best IMO.

    The bar I worked at never carried Ouzo. I'm told it's similar to the Sambuca in taste. Even tho' I don't drink, I will take tastes of liquors, liqueurs or drinks so I know how best to serve my customers. Guess I'll have to find someone to share this with!

    As far as jellybeans, there's not too many bad ones.
