I like black licorice but it will make me feel sick if I eat too much. Its a flavor to be used sparingly.

I like black licorice.

A Lot.

I do prefer the Australian version, though.

I do not, however, eat it bags at a time....

Hmm...wonder what happens when you mix black licorice with diet gummy bears. We should tell Trump it will get him re-elected so he does it and we can make it a public experiment...

Gotta get the balance right between sweet and licorice taste. Those bitter salty licorice drops are disgusting

That's because they're not really black licorice. :)

Good stuff...
