    Liquorice sweets or as you guys say Candy :)

    Had a day off with my youngest son the other day and we paid a visit to a building he had a project on.
    On way back we stopped in at the South African store to pick up a few supplies from the old country lol.
    I wondered whether you guys know what i am refering to if i say "liquorice all sorts" maybe a pic is worth a thousand words in this case. These were never my favorite sweet really only purchased them for show and tell and i know Linda likes a particular one out of the pack.
    So do you guys have them in USA.?
    I actually think they a British thing i know my Mom used to like them. I can only handle liquorice once in a blue moon. Click image for larger version.

    We use to have them in the U.S. don't know if we do anymore. I never look for them because I'm not a fan. I love liquorice, but not in that form.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Never saw them before. I do love black jelly beans though.

    Obviously you shop at the wrong stores. That bag is WAY too small. I would have to buy many bags.

    We always pick them up in the UK, and when we occasionally see them here, we often buy them. I recall the days when I could eat whatever I wanted, and not gain weight. No more, so candy like this has become a rare treat.

    Yeah, Rob, what Charlie said. You need to get the wine-bottle-sized box from Costco... :-)

    The problem with these is they suffer from the "bet you can't eat just one" phenomenon
    There's usually more than one way to do it... ........

    They used to be my older son's favorite candy. You can still win his heart with a bagful. Of course, there are lots of places to buy them for me, as I'm only 45km souuth of you.

    Man I haven't seen these in years. I don't remember seeing them down here but definitely remember having them in Canada. There were like two candies in there I really liked (the "grit" covered ones if I recall correctly) and then the black licorice centers out of the round candies. I'd trade the outsides for the licorice centers, never cared for the outside part of those for some reason.

    Most of the big drug stores have them around here as well as some supermarkets. I really like black licorice, the stronger the better.
    Most of the country stores have the real old fashioned stuff.

    you folks that don't like licorice, do you like Anisette, Ouzo, Sambucca ????

    I think I remember those from way back. I thought I was the only one who liked black licorice...didn't realize I had friends in that area (Brent hates it).

    Yes, Carol, Jelly Belly black licorice beans and don't forget the buttered popcorn beans. They go well together
