Black Jelly Beans

Postby EOTistatron » Mon Feb 26, 2007 6:45 am UTC

XKCD and community: it's Easter time in the supermarkets, so I've been gorging myself on jelly beans. As has long been the case, however, I am the only one in my family to like the black ones. Though I'll certainly not object, as I'm getting more candy this way, their shunning of this grand bean seems a grave injustice. Am I truly alone in my taste for this oft maligned treat?



Yay! I actually posted it! An entirely new topic in a forum that I'm not a regular at?! *gasp*

Is black licorice? If so, I demand more.

I am not typical. I also enjoy (enjoy!!!) Circus Peanuts and all other anise flavoured items (like licorice). Yums.

Well, it's not really black licorice, just flavoring, I think. I tried the real stuff once and hated it.

Black jellybeans are anise not licorice, and, unlike licorice, suck.

I'll admit I'm candy racist and have never had a black coloured candy I liked, be it jelly bean, licorice or even really really dark chocolate. White jelly beans on the other hand are delicious, just goes to show you that candy manufacturers are all part of the Third Reich. Hitler invented lollipops and you're all buying into his master plan!

Once you go black, you never go back.

Huh. I'd thought they were the same (or similar). In any case, I like it.

I didn't even know they made black jelly beans. I always figured it was like making pink S&M lingerie; kind of backwards.

How come so many people online don't like licorice? I can only assume it's different overseas, in my country it's just universally nummy candeh.

black licorice is also anise flavoured. as is absinthe.

i like black jellybeans and licorice, but not the ultra-sweet ones.

There is only "black licorice." "Red licorice" isn't licorice at all.

And although there may be anise in licorice, anise flavour =/= licorice flavour. Black jelly beans are anise.

...has no idea what dutch liquorice is like, but suspects that the ammonium chloride in danish liquorice is a world beater...

Dutch liquorice is quite hard and chewy, you have to soften it in your mouth for a while. It's pretty salty in taste! It's kind of hard to explain. What does NH4Cl do to liquorice?

As far as I'm concerned, if food is black then you screwed something up in making it. I hold a strong dislike for all anise-flavoured consumables (including absinthe, but I will make the occasional exception due to its other admirable qualities).

well, the danish stuff that i've tried is really hard and salty, so when you put it in your mouth it's kind of "gah!" and then you chew it and it's great and then after a bit the ammonium chloride is released and kind of wanders down your throat in a chilling sort of "i'm drinking solvent" way...

yeah. it's awesome :)

Licorice (black) is one of those things that you think you'd be able to eat after years of hating it. But you take one bite and the memories flood back.

Black jellybeans are slightly different, but hold the same bad mojo (for me).

Anise, oddly enough, is ok with me.

About the only licorice-flavoured thing I can tolerate though is Jager', and even then only barely.

I like liquorice flavoured gummy things but not liquorice flavoured jelly beans. There's something about the 2 different types of "jellyness" that makes it taste better in gummy things.

I prefer the common expansion of FMH (pronouns, as you can see, can be adjusted) which is:
"Fuck me with a piledriver and ten feet of curare tipped wrought iron fence!"

Generally said when a large quantity of fecal matter has hit the rotary impeller which was moving at an extremely high rotational velocity.
