Hi. My name is Polka Dot, and I'm addicted to liquorice allsorts.
I can tell you when it started. When I was still pregnant, I had a horrid pregnancy. Anything I could eat, I would, because I was eating so little that any nourishment was good (seriously. I lost 35 pounds in 6 weeks cause I wasn't able to eat, or if I could, it would make a return visit. I was sick every day of my pregnancy, starting the day after taking the test til the morning I gave birth.)
One night, along about 8 months, I looked at the partner and said "Honey. I need liquorice." The local newsagent (24 hours, bless!) was out of liquorice, so he bought me Sambuca. I did two shots, and it curbed the need. But it didn't go away. The next day, he bought me a bag of allsorts.
I had never had such a delicacy. Oh my. They were quite good. So good, that 7 months later, I still have 'em. And not in a good way...I mean at least a bag every 2 days. Oh yes. Oh heavens. They are SO good.
So I'm coming out of the (candy) closet. Just sayin'.
