  12. I don't know what these are. I thought they were chocolate, my favourite but the caption makes me doubt.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  18. Looks like chocolate. There are many different shapes and they have the sweet or salty version.

    hmmmm.... Dutch licorice. Wonder how they taste like.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Very interesting photo, Jenn. Is it licorice? Chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  20. All sort of drops, they must be sweet ! I am not that keen on sweet stuff that's why I don't know them probably.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hmmm...I've never had them.
    Wonder what they taste like?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I see I am not the only one wondering what they are! Dark chocolate? Love the different shapes!

  28. lol @ my ignorance. I was here awhile ago and all I read was the title "Acquired Taste". I didn't see the PhotoHunt banner, it's down. sorry.

    Anyway, that is a very unique one indeed! happy weekend! :)

  29. It's "regaliz" in Spain, I first tasted in Germany. I like it when I have a sore throat... It's fun to buy it from the local market, great pic!

  32. I've tried some salty licorice (in California -- courtesy of American friends of Dutch (or, to be precise, Friese (sp.?)) descent. Definitely an acquired taste! (And yeah, I prefer my licorice sweet...!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Black liquorice? Yuk!!

    Great pic though!

    Call over to see my sweet thing...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hmmmmm...I'll try anything once, even salty sweet licorice!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You're right about it being an acquired taste. The candy looks like chocolate!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Surely it's against the laws of mand and nature to make licorice look so much like chocolate? Very pretty, but it would probably cause lasting psychological damage if I expected to taste chocolate and instead tasted licorice.

    Cool picture, though.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Dh is a black licorice fan. Me? More of a red gal. :) I like the angle of your shot! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very interesting.
    Thanks for the visit.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like where you placed the sign in the image. It helps balance out the darkness of the chocolate.

    And I like that you don't write alot! You let the image speak for itself. Brava.

    ReplyDelete

    Happy Weekend!

    ReplyDelete

  56. Great shot! Love the depth of field. At first glance I thought it was a sea of chocolate...now that would be sweet!

    ReplyDelete

    Good photo for theme!

    ReplyDelete

  63. I never liked black licorice when I was little but have developed a tolerance--maybe even a taste--for it. Now it's not so bad.

  66. It looks like really dark chocolate, but is a form of black licorice? It must be an acquired taste. Great shot, I've never seen it displayed like that!

  69. At first glance, I thought they were coffee beans. Doh!

    I actually like black licorice. My Nany used to always have it at her house. The smell of black licorice makes me think of her.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh I don't like licorice! LOL but that is a great photo.
