Iceland and liquorice

Isolation, a harsh climate, and decades of candy import bans may have something to do with [why Icelanders love liquorice] ... why [haven't] their palates broadened as international trade has expanded and American candy proliferation has reached near-global saturation?"

A typical liquorice-hating American with tunnel vision concocts obscure historical explanations for why Icelanders like liquorice, all the while ignoring the glaringly obvious answer: Liquorice is tasty and delicious, and Nordic liquorice candy is simply superior to the nasty artificial-chemical-tasting junk produced by Anglo-Saxon civilisation.
