HaveYou Ever Had Licorice Before?

I personally don't like the taste of licorice candy. I don't like the smell of it and it taste like rubber or something. Maybe because I am not use to it, but my hubby loves it. He keeps asking me "Why you don't like it?", and my answer is "I just don't like the taste!". How about you? Do you like licorice candy?
Black Licorice

According to Wikipedia, Liquorice is a confectionery flavoured with the extract of the roots of the liquorice plant. A wide variety of liquorice sweets are produced around the world. In the U.S., licorice is called black licorice, to distinguish it from similar candy varieties that are not flavoured with liquorice extract, and commonly consists of chewy ropes or tubes. Most popular in the United Kingdom are liquorice allsorts.

Strawberry Licorice

In Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and the United States, there is also a product known as red liquorice, which is extruded in a way to resemble liquorice, but is made with strawberry, cherry, or raspberry flavourings as the main flavourings rather than liquorice. More recently similar products have been introduced in a wider variety of flavours including apple, mango, blackcurrant, watermelon and strawberry, among others.
