A guide to the most divisive and misunderstood denizen of the candy aisle

Jessica Furseth   recently  wrote a groovy guide to licorice for  Eater. I love this illustration by  Sophia Pappas  celebrating real, true licorice. Please note in her illustration licorice is black  NOT red.  Well, except for the All Sorts ❤ that have black licorice book-ended by neon hot pink, day-glow green and bright yellow. They are in a league of  their  own.
