Poll - Black Licorice [View all]

There are only like three foods on the planet that are so horrific tasting that I have to spit them out if I take a bite, and black licorice is one of them. I know taste is totally subjective so if you do like it I am not putting you down. But I am curious to what percentage of people also hate it as much as I do?
