Who did that???

Who decided that licorice was a fruit, so that when I am eating a healthy snack of jelly beans, and enjoying all the fruity goodness, and I bite into a licorice jelly bean, my entire morning is ruined because that bite tasted like bitter tar???

The grossness of licorice can only be parallelled (sp?) by buttered popcorn jelly beans. I mean really. Popcorn? Ew.

I suppose it would be being overly pedantic of me to remark that licorice flavoring originally came from a plant (the root of Glycirrhiza maxima, IIRC), and therefore, technically, has a vegetable source? So, even if it's not technically a fruit, it does have a plant origin.

Of course, by that arguement, chocolate - coming FROM a fruit of a tree - would be even more eligible for inclusion in a bag of "fruit" jelly beans - but you almost never see chocolate jelly beans.
