    LOL!!! Black licorice is the ONLY candy on the planet NO ONE in my family can stand- except ME!!! I am sooooo with you on the black Jelly Bellys!

    I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that black licorice flavored gum- cant remember the name right at the moment, but its the only gum I can keep in my purse without worrying my kids will want some of!

    ETA- Oh yeah, I think that gum is called BlackJack, mmmmmmm.... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mmm, I love black jelly beans also. Black licorice not quite as much. The one treat I love above all others but get very rarely are Harry and David Chocolate-Covered Cherries. YUM!

    Can't stand licorice of any color, and I despise anise, so black jelly beans are out for me. My candy of choice would be miniature Reese's peanut butter cups, which I hide from my husband because he will eat them all and I don't want to share! He HATES peanut butter but will chow down on my mini Reese's. I don't get it.
  9. I also love black jelly bellys, but don't like traditional black licorice, like the Panda brand... I like my licorice with a lot of sugar! DH says that people only pretend to like licorice so they don't have to share the jelly beans... NO way! I really really like black jelly beans!

    Who knew I would be in such great company with my love of black jelly beans! [​IMG]

    For the longest time I was the only one in my family that liked the black ones, which of course insured that I got them all. Sadly, one of my nieces has decided to be like me and insists that she likes them as well. Sigh. I have had to do the grown up thing and share, despite my inner child screaming "MINE MINE MINE!!" It helps that our local Publix sells Jelly Bellies by the bag full and you can pick which flavors you want. I have been getting a treat of black and cinnamon flavored and I haven't shared a single one. [​IMG]
