SERIOUS QUESTION ... Do you like Licorice? If so, Black, Red, other... I have some thoughts.

Post by MetalSludgeCEO »

Licorice might be the greatest candy every invented.

Seriously... I am in awe when someone doesn't like licorice, and if you don't like Black Licorice, you are clearly racist.

My favorite, is Black of course... and I also recently saw an amazing commercial advertising licorice.

No, not Twizzlers, not Red Vines, just licorice in general, and they have a gang of flavors.

They even have a website, which might be the greatest site since Metal Sludge launched 25 years ago.

The 12 pak for $89.00 seems high, but each container is 1/2 pound, that is 6 pounds of licorice. Damn... I think I am gonna order anyway!

Red Vines are awesome, especially the Grape Licorice. I'm racist though because #BlackLicoriceDoesntMatter. Yuck.

I love all licorice because I am a good person
You should never use a straw for anything. Just bite off both ends

Would rather have licorice over something stupid like Snickers
Jani Lane and Bret Michaels should form a band called "Nelson II"

I remember as a kid getting those black licorice pipes with the red specs of candy at the end to make it look like the smoke. I always thought I was the coolest MFer walking around with that :D .


As for today, I can't buy it. If I do, I will get too much, and eat it all until I'm sick. Probably the only food I have no filter on.

Lol same. Guess it's different to eat it than to drink it.

Black licorice is disgusting. Major FAIL of a candy.

I never thought I’d hear a human go out of their way to say “Licorice is good” but here we are.

It’s neither for me, nor am I anti, but if someone’s going out of their way to sing its praises I guess I have to respect that.

There's liquorice in Jaeger? I can't taste it, which is a good thing. I can eat or drink pretty much anything, except aniseed and liquorice. They are vile. That includes drinks like Pernod.

In recent years, several studies have found that licorice may influence hormone levels, potentially leading to a decline in testosterone over time.

Love Red Twizlers. Not a real big fan of black. One thing I don’t see these days is the thin stringy red licorice I used to consume as a kid. I ate miles of that stuff but I just don’t see it in stores.

Of the top 100 candies, based on dollar sales, licorice is # 1028. I don't mind it but to say that its good, begs popular opinion.

Black Licorice Is my favorite and the only kind I’d buy… it amazes me that most people I’ve talked to about it absolutely hate black but like the red. The red is fine, black is the best by miles!

No chance this is true...at least for North America where It would be in top 10 for sure

I'm guessing India...china....Russia etc have their own candy that no one in NA has heard of...and they probably use black licorice to torture their prisoners. :D :D :D

No point trying to teach Yanks how to spell properly on an American message board for a style of music where many of the original fans wouldn't be able to read if you taped their lips shut.

Believe it or not there is a tea that I like called Throat Coat. One of the ingredients is licorice root. If you like tea and licorice I would imagine you would like this.

And of course FANUK (the vegetable) that looks like celery but tastes like black licorice. It has become slang for homosexual over the years so be careful how and who you ask if you're looking for some!
