For Michele

July 31, 2007

Journal, Lauren

For some weird reason, Baltimore Michele only likes licorice. (You’ll have to read her comment here.) I’m sure she was dropped on her head as a child, and we all can, and should, pray for her recovery.  In the meantime, I happened to visit ‘Licorice International’ in Lincoln, which carries many different brands of licorice from all over the world. No kidding. It’s a ‘store’ filled with ‘shelves’ that hold ‘boxes’ of ‘licorice’. What is this place – candy purgatory? Give me the Spree Store – now that has a future!

Rows and rows of black yuck.

From all over the world!

    What’s that child doing in the first picture? Is he just gawking at the horror of it all, or is he one of them?


  2. Annette Said on:

    I would guess however, that you did find some interest in the store because of clever packaging.


  3. Jill Said on:

    Is it JUST black licorice or are there other flavors?

    Plain black licorice is gross … but what about after it’s been jelled & super sugar coated as in black jelly beans … yummy!!

    And off the topic: I made a bacon mat last night … it turned our great!! Except my son ate the whole mat himself. I will need 4 packages of bacon to feed in the future.

    As far as I could tell, not being a connaisseur of licorice, it was mostly black licorice. I saw one bag of red, one bag of ‘variety’ stuff, and some things that looked like giant Tic-Tacs in a bag -- who knows what was in them.
