I love licorice, the darker, harder and stronger the better. I never knew such a small amount had such a profound impact on blood pressure and the heart.

How on earth do the Nordic countries survive?

Salt liquorice is the food of the (Norse) gods.

Perhaps they don't eat quite that much a day.

solomongursky - 24 Sep 2020 21:27:42 (#4 of 100)

Takes all sorts.

hailesaladdie - 24 Sep 2020 21:27:47 (#5 of 100)

That'll be that lagom we all hear about, I guess.

solomongursky - 24 Sep 2020 21:28:17 (#6 of 100)

wtf's licorice.

It's liquorice.

It's hard not to mainline these:

We quite sensibly gave up on liquorice when we got chocolate.

AdonisBlue - 24 Sep 2020 21:37:58 (#10 of 100)

2oz a day is not that much maaaan... I'm not an addict, I could quit anytime I want etc.

But it really isn't a lot 2oz. I can easily get through a quarter of Lions Liquorice tablets when I'm really partying.

AdonisBlue - 24 Sep 2020 21:39:30 (#11 of 100)

Chocolate, like flowers, is an uncouth tart next to the more grown up pleasures of licorice.

I recall even as a kid being baffled by a liquorice sherbet. Ok, the sherbet was nice, but the odd tasting cable you slurped it off?

frantastic - 24 Sep 2020 21:43:36 (#13 of 100)

Well, it takes all sorts.

DesEsseintes - 24 Sep 2020 21:44:53 (#14 of 100)

on the one hand, real liquorice is very nice

on the other hand, what's the difference between a bag of shite and haribo?

hailesaladdie - 24 Sep 2020 21:50:48 (#15 of 100)

I feel like that ought to result in a clever pun.

darkhorse - 24 Sep 2020 21:51:51 (#16 of 100)

Certainly, if I only had twigs to eat, liquorice would be one of my favourites. But it's not high praise.

Verdigris - 24 Sep 2020 21:54:13 (#17 of 100)

Trust the Graun to spell liquorice incorrectly.

harryhaller - 24 Sep 2020 21:57:32 (#18 of 100)

Best way to deal with this is to tax the stuff.

That'll create a black market, of course.

But if coke snorters eat lots of liquorice

it'll be killing too stoned with one,, oh forget it.

JohnIlly - 24 Sep 2020 22:01:51 (#19 of 100)

Trust the Graun to spell liquorice incorrectly.

There are two spellings. The one with a C is older.

DesEsseintes - 24 Sep 2020 22:04:30 (#20 of 100)

Anyone that spells it with a C should be chucked in gaol, however.

Even if the story is about Amerikkka.
