I was watching John Oliver in an interview. He was talking about how he ate aniseed balls when he was young and found them disgusting.
Do you eat aniseed balls? Do you like them? Public poll.
" Aniseed balls are a comfit type of hard round sweet sold in the UK, Ireland, Malta, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. They are shiny and dark reddish brown, and hard like Gobstoppers, but generally only 1⁄2 inch (13 mm) across.
They are flavoured by aniseed oil, with a strong aniseed flavour, and last for a long time in the mouth before dissolving. In the centre of the ball is normally a whole rapeseed, which is used for forming layers of sugar around, although other nuclei such as sugar crystals are sometimes used."
