I think that was that absinthe essence stuff I saw online for $9.95 and got yelled at for mentioning!

That, or powdered Twizzlers.

I fear the candy "Double Zout". It it very salty and tastes like ammonia. Why anyone would want a "double salt" candy is beyond me.

For some reason my fiance bough a bag once and tried to make me eat it all because she didn't like it.

Anyone ever been to the Bad Candy webpage (www.bad-candy.com)?

I love Danish licorice. Addictive.

A co-worker just returned from a conference in Denmark, and brought me a bag of "Super Mix", which are assorted candies. Very...odd candies. A lot of them are licorice-flavored, but with other notes you don't see in the US. My favorite so far are the black gummi-bears, which are SALTY, and slightly peppery.
