Snow cones still are a popular summer treat -- sweet and cold and easy to eat. But some nontraditional flavors might deserve a try.
ThisWeek staffers answer the question: Would you ever eat a snow cone with licorice syrup?
Andrew King: I'm not sure I can think of a worse snow-cone flavor. Do you also want me to eat a toothpaste-flavored one?
Scott Hummel: I'll try almost anything once -- almost anything -- once.
Sarah Sole: I hate licorice.
Dennis Laycock: Sure. Licorice gets a bad rap, it can be tasty.
Lee Cochran: No way.
Lisa Proctor: Licorice has never been an appealing flavor -- not even in a jelly bean.
Nate Ellis: Heck to the yeah.
Abby Armbruster: I think that's better left untried by my mouth.
Neil Thompson: I find licorice cloying, but, as I usually say, I'll try anything once.
