The Horehound (APAD)

The 243rd picture in "A Picture A Day" series.


Among the blueberry, raspberry, and fruit punch flavored candy sticks at the Bulk Foods Depot, I spotted the odd and, according to the sign, natural flavor of horehound. WTH is a horehound? I had no idea, but how could I resist? With a name like that it has to be good!

So, I purchased the fifteen cent candy stick. I was expecting a strong and pungent flavor, but it really doesn't taste like much. The more I suck on it though, the more of a slight herbal taste comes out.

Hmmmmmmmm.

This candy is not for me. I prefer high fructose and artificially flavored delight.

Though, I do envision super old people and hippie families happily sucking away on the horehound candy stick.
