Another entry from Christmas 2009's "A Year of Love" jar:
I love you because you like licorice.
Indeed I do. I like black licorice candy, which probably these days is mostly 100% confection (edit: Wikipedia says the flavor is mostly aniseed oil), but is fairly close to the real flavor of licorice root. It's also a great sweetener for herbal teas.
(Yes, I do realize that a more common spelling, at least the British English one, is "liquorice". That's how it was spelled on the note, though.)
