A warning about black licorice
This final note today, in which I stand up for what really counts as licorice and what doesn’t. It comes by way of an FDA report that adults over the age of 40, who eat more than two ounces of black licorice a day for two weeks straight, are at risk for heart arrhythmia.
So be careful.
But my point actually is this: The red stuff, apparently, is OK. That red stuff? It’s not really licorice. I don’t care what they say.
