    I am not 100% opposed to black licorice and will (very) occasionally eat some. I suspect I am not in danger of an overdose.

    I have no desire to eat black licorice. BiL Alan loves it, however. Maybe I need to warn him.

    ETA - I don't think I have ever seen him eat even one package in a single day so I think he will be ok.

    Candy! High brow, but candy nonetheless.

    If you abide by the school of thought that says candy is anything in which sugar is the majority ingredient, then 'yes'. If you abide by the Potter Stewart school of thought that says, while candy is tough to define, I know it when I see it, then 'no'.

    According to Merriam-Webster it is "a confection of crushed almonds or almond paste, sugar, and egg whites that is often shaped into various forms". So the question becomes "Is a confection a candy?".

    I feel like you just made the "Y" is sometimes a vowel and sometimes a consonant argument here.

    Marshmallows

    Also a candy? According to my dear mother, yes. As a wee youngster, I gave up candy for Lent one year. To my chagrin, I was denied marshmallows - ergo they are candy.

    Couldn't have marzipan either.

    Is this a safe space to confess I'm not entirely sure what marzipan is? I was aware of the term. Aware that it was dessert/sweet/candy related. It's ok if you vote me out of here. I can slink back to beer.
