Comments: That's A Little Hard to Explain

Yep, that Demon Likker gets to 'em early. I had an advance preview of the new flavor of Altoids this past August. At the national Archivist's convention the Archivist at General Mills had brought a box with him to show off. Unless it was Kraft, I forget which - one of them owns Altoids.

And I think the take-home goodies from a food company have GOT to be better than most other places to work.

I read the words BLACK LICORICE and my taste buds exploded~! I love the stuff! There is this great stuff you can get here; a very strong flaovred licorice stick stuffed with cream. It is heaven!

I wish altoids was kosher. They do look so good.

Oh, YUM!

I adore black licorice - it's always been a favorite of mine. I'll have to give the new Altoids a try.

Aye, and I like it too! My grandma would keep licorice around (it was her favorite) and I developed a taste for it. The Jelly-Belly licorice beans are tasty.

I've been tempted to buy the "bridge mix", but it seems expensive. Maybe I'll treat myself after Christmas for the traditional "buying stuff I wish I got but didn't" shopping spree.

Oh, man... that stuff raises blood pressure. Just what the doctor DIDN'T order for me, which is too bad. When I was younger, I was a licorice fiend.
