I always throw out or pick through these. I like red licorice though not black.

I dunno whether you know this or not but the black Jelly beans aren't licorice flavour :) They are Aniseed flavour & it's awful - NOTHING like normal licorice! I HATE the black Jelly Beans but my Mum loves them so whenever i had any, i'd give them to her & she'd gladly eat them. I could never understand why she liked them, they were awful but then again, not everyone has the same tastes!

I eat them. I like red and black licorice flavors. The only jelly beans that I do not eat are the pink ones. They taste funny to me. I prefer the Jelly Belly ones though over the other brands that just taste like sugar. The Jelly Belly ones actually have a taste.

Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Jelly Beans - Discover the wild flavors of EARWAX, DIRT, GRASS, BOOGER, SARDINE, BLACK PEPPER and the 2 latest new flavors ROTTEN EGG and BACON. And, everyone's favorite VOMIT.
I have never been a fan of the black jelly beans; the only time I ate one was when I got the Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Beans. Even then, I wasn't all that impressed with them lol.

i don't like black licorice either - it's a tad too bitter for me. for jellybeans, usually i try a few before deciding which colour in that pack i like best. cos the green ones from one shop might taste quite different from the green ones from another shop. the other thing is that i used to think that black ones were blackcurrent, only to have a rude shock of bitterness sometimes!

Ooooo, yuck! I hate black jelly beans. I have never acquired a taste for licorice. I always pick out the black jelly beans. But lately, it seems that the jelly beans I have been buying don't even have black in them anymore. That works for me.

Ew, I've always hated black licorice and black jellybeans. The only person I know that likes them is my mother-in-law. I never liked red ones either unless they're cinnamon flavor. I rarely eat candy anymore but my favorite jelly beans were always the Starburst and Jelly Belly brands.

I used to love the black jelly beans because they are licorice. I hear they're good for your adrenals, but are bad for your blood pressure. I can't eat them anymore because I have a problem with my adrenal glands putting out too much aldosterone, which black licorice can cause an increase. I also have too little cortisone, so it makes the problem worse. Otherwise, I would eat black licorice jelly beans all day long!

OK, you can all send me your black jelly beans. They're my favorite, even though they turn my tongue purple. I go out and buy bags of all black beans!
