Taste test: This bag of licorice contained pieces that resembled oversized pills, with brownish, powdery-looking exteriors. Unlike most licorice, this was hard candy — there was nothing remotely bendable about it. When we tried to share these with some snacking friends, we got the usual reaction that we get with black licorice, as many simply don't like black licorice and wouldn't even try one piece.
The unusual thing this time was that even the people willing to try black licorice didn't like it. The taste was sweet and intense, evidently a combination of toffee and licorice, and it just overwhelmed the taste buds. Just about everyone ended up spitting out their one piece way before they could finish it.
