Liquorice root

Had an hour to kill today whilst waiting for my new reading glasses.

Had a wonder around the shopping centre and went into a health shop really to see what supplements they had that might help me with my new fitness regime.

Whilst talking to the sales girl I said that I had given up smoking and am a little bored with chewing gum to which she replied. " Why don't you try Liquorice Root ". Anyway brought some and although ive never been a big fan of the black stuff or any sweets for that matter it really is ok. Even as im typing this im chewing on a small piece and it really is quite nice. Just thought I would mention it. Might help someone else who needs something to fill the gap so to speak.

I remember buying that as a kid, can you still buy it?

I'll have to get some.

Is it bad for you?

I went through a phase of being pratically addicted to the stuff when I was dieting some years ago. Have to say I never noticed any unfortunate side effects. :)

If it helps use it is what I say. :)
