I love black licorice and black jelly beans. You either love them or you hate them, there is no in between. Most of the people I know don't like either one. And some people don't like any licorice at all. The only kind of licorice that I will not eat is Twizlers. I don't like any flavor of that brand. The first time I tasted black licorice was when I was about 13 years old. There was a record store in the mall called Licorice Pizza. They would give away free black licorice. I think that licorice has become a lot more popular since then. In recent years, they have created so many different brands, flavors, textures, and sizes. I think that I will go to Wikipedia and find out the history of licorice. I am sure that it will be very very interesting. What kind of licorice do you like the best?

To me, it is rare when people don't like the red licorice. I know that most people don't like the black. I love them both.

I dont like cherry flavored either..ugh!

That is cute, your mom takes the black nasty one off your hands. I had a friend once that always wanted my black jelly beans, but they were my favorite too. So we would share them equally.

To each his own? Well, I just don't think that I have ever been so insulted in all my life. Okay, wait, never mind. That was a little too dramatic, even for me. Okay, so how are things going? Nice to see that you still coming and hang out on Mylot sometimes. Catch up with you later, either here or there. God Bless you.

Don't mind me, I have a coo coo sense of humor. I know what you mean about Mylot. I have come to count on them and I know that they pay. Yuwie is coll, but I read that you have to make $50.00 to be paid and it takes a while for the money to be dispersed, because they have to get it, they said. I hope we have not gone through all of that for nothing. I was working on a survey site and I got enough points to cash out, but they keep giving me excusses about why they can not pay me yet. They have the Better Business Bureau Logo and that is the only reson that I trusted them in the first place. I am trying to give them time to get it right, before I file a complaint, but I really don't feel like they are planning to follow through. These sites are for the most part gambles to me. You never know whether they are going to pay or not. I have been to a lot of them, and I look around and think to myself, they have just got to be kidding me. Anyway, I am just rambling now. Catch up with you later. Sorry, didn't mean to frighten you, just me being silly.

You don't like any licorice at all? There is so many different ones to choose from, I would think that there would be one for everyone.

LOL...I hate black licorice but I love cherry Twizlers. It's actually the only flavor I do like by Twizler. Even though I like Twizlers, I really have to be in the mood to eat them. I guess it's for an acquired taste.:)

The only thing that I hate as much as Twizzlers is the flavor cherry. I do not know why. I just do not like the taste of that flavor. Taste buds are quite interesting to me.

The thing with me is that I hate real cherries. I only like cherry flavored candy and stuff. I like grapes too, but I hate grape candy. Weird.

The only cherries that I like are the ones that are for fruit mix or sundaes. I do not know what one would call what they do to them, but it totally changes the taste of them. Now, I love grapes and the flavor grape. Grape was my mothers favorite flavor.

Yes, Good and Plenty is very good. I am like your friend. I too, can put away some candy. In fact, sugar is the addiction that keeps me in trouble. I do not remember having grape, but I figure if it were good, they would have come out with it a long time ago, LOL.

I LOVE black licorice and jelly beans! The taste of anise is so soothing and invigorating at the same time. There's nothing quite like it, and that's what makes it amazing. I usually have a bag of licorice in my drawer or my bag at work, lol. Keeps me going without nicotine. Blessed Be

I did not know that licorice could help with nicotine cravings, but I guess the taste of it is powerful enough to kill the cravings of just about anything.

I'm with you. I love black licorice. And you are right, people either love it or hate it. I like it in jelly beas, strands, licorice bits, licorice pipes....even the altoid licorice. The only kind I have some across that I am not super crazy about is the salty licorie that is more popular in Europe. Though there is a honey licorie that is just heavenly. I have only been able to find it at a speciality sotre near me. It's funny, when my mom was preganant with me she ate a lot of it. And I love it. When she was pregant with my sister she didn't eat it at all and my sister hates it. I always think that's interesting.

You were serious, you really do like licorice. You have named some that I have never even heard of. You forget about the rope though. I think that is my favorite.

I love the black licorice bites. I can't find the kind I loved several years ago. I think they stopped making them. I haven't had any licorice in a long time. That would be a nice treat.

Actually, when I wrote this I was eating the black and red bites combination. The only thing that I did not like about it is that the black is so strong, it cancels out the taste of the red. Anyway, I needed to do a big order through Vons.com, so since delivery was free with a minimun of fifty dollars worth of merchandise, I ordered them. They were a very nice treat.

That is funny. I guess it is a good candy to buy when you don't want to share with very many people.
