Good reason to enjoy more.

There is a store in our area that sells Australian licorice.  It is soft and chewy and very good.  Love it.  It's like potato chips.  You can't have just one.  Smiley Happy

I'm the only person in my family who loves black licorice.

I crave it from time to time.  I like the licorice wheels

that used to be sold in bulk at a few supermarkets.

 I have found them also at Cost Plus World Market.

Re: Attn: LICORICE Lovers - Pls Explain

Thank you for the info re: anise, licorice, fennel, etc., etc.

Also, thanks for the memories re: Black Jack, Clove, etc. gum.

Could be that Cost Plus World Market carries one or two of those brands.  I ran across several 'retro' candies and gums there. 

I seriously have special memories regarding anise.  Dare I say that I have a small bottle of pure anise extract (food grade) on my vanity tray. (Dab on my neck when I want to feel extra good.)

Sweet memories, as a child, recalling my mom and I baking anise flavored biscotti. Heart
