Hate it. Black Liqourice (or licorice depending on your continent):
I really don’t like this stuff. I can just about bear it on ‘Liquorice Allsorts’, which are coated in so much sugary, fondanty stuff that you can’t really taste it, but on it’s own: yuk.
Red liquorice (which I guess, isn’t actually real liquorice) is a different matter altogether, I could eat that stuff ’til it comes out of my ears. Did you ever endure certain sweets (candy) as a child that you really didn’t like, but as they were the only things on offer you ate them anyway? I can think of:
- Parma Violets ( I think that’s their name) Foul violet scented sweets
- ‘UFO’s’ – Rice paper with sherbet in: Like cardboard only without the flavour
- Winter mixtures or ‘cough candy’. Bleccccch.
- Wagon Wheels -Take chocolate, take biscuit, what could go wrong? Just insert a layer of inedible white foam between the two and you’re set.
Sometimes, sweets held no pleasure at all….
