I have loved black licorice since childhood. The scent of anise is fantastic and I open my bottle of anise extract just to enjoy the smell. Since I have started making my own candy I have been looking forward to making batches of licorice candy to enjoy. I can't understand why some people don't love it.
If you don't like black licorice, there is DEFINETELY something wrong with you. Black licorice in the licorice race is like the lion of the cat race. If you don't like black licorice I believe you unqualified to judge any other type, including pineapple (I know, weird, right?), Red or any other wacky flavour that gets invented next.
Black licorice is essentially the master race of licorice. Red licorice is all right, don't get me wrong, but there's just something about black licorice that makes it better than red licorice. I think it's the classic taste of pure licorice, sweet molasses, and just the right about of salt. You know what they say; once you go black, you can never go back.
When i first tried it, it tasted soo heavenly that i fell in love and never will fall out of love with it again. How can you hate something so good that tastes soo heavenly and say the devil made it when it is definatley made by the angels all around us.
