I see the company's found a new Chinese supplier... why would there be any lead in candy?!?

I must have a family full of weirdos then because I a the only person in my family that doesn't like black licorice. I shudder just thinking about eating that stuff even with no lead in it. Don't like redbull and have never even tried jager because I heard it was licorice flavored.

Wait wasn't the idea of Red Vines to be RED and Stringy like.. When did they start making black twizzler like things. And why should I care? Twizzlers are the best. They protect from all kinds of horror movie monsters..

At least black licorice is better than circus peanuts.

Anise/licorice is one of those things one either loves or hates.
Me, I loves it.

Black licorice is tasty. And if you want to take other measurements I like Thrills gum and despise cilantro.

As a kid I loved black licorice. Then I moved to Sweden and tried what they consider black licorice - much, much stronger and salty.

I don't like black licorice anymore.

At first I thought the salty stuff was gross, now I can't get enough of it. Salty Black Fish. Delicious.

I bought six small tubs of it off Amazon after a Euro friend gave me my first taste.

I still have four. Want some?

Please?

I don't like black jellybeans, and I HATE Sambuca, but somehow I love Absinthe. In fact, it's probably my very favorite hard liquor.

Glycyrrhizin (or glycyrrhizic acid or glycyrrhizinic acid) is the main sweet-tasting compound from liquorice root.
Researchers have recently demonstrated doses of licorice root extract, delivering the constituent glycyrrhizin in amounts similar to that contained in standard medical doses of the root, rapidly and significantly lowered levels of circulating testosterone in males.

"This has never happened to me before baby, it must be from the licorice I just ate"
 
2012-08-24 04:59:43 AM  
After 30 seconds of research, I see why: Liquorice and anise are not even remotely related. Mystery solved.

Salmiakki is good, if you're the kind of person who likes black licorice with ammonium chloride salt. If you're not used to the ammonium chloride you won't like it at all.

Also, anise is rather different from licorice.

Except when you consider that the stimulant effect of the red bull cancels out the drunk feeling from the alcohol, but inhibitions are still depresed as is coordnation and judgement leaving one more likely to do things that get people on Smoking Gun World's Dumbest and hurt themselves doing so

After all this tainted nasty candy is collected, they need to force feed it to the rotten sons of whores that program pop up adds that take up your entire cell phone screen and can't be x'd out.

As someone who will eat nearly fatal amounts of black liquorice, I'm really getting a kick, etc.

The salt in those disgusting things will kill you before those lead-laces ones will.
